Scrapbook paper is a versatile way to spice up home decor projects, including this easy DIY makeup storage transformed with paint and patterned paper.

I am a memory keeper at heart but this new season of juggling work and our final years of homeschooling means I don’t have as much time for traditional scrapbooking.

These days most of our tangible memories are captured via Project Life and since I have amassed quite a large collection of paper (okay, so it rivals Michael’s. I can’t help that I love patterned paper!) I still enjoy using my paper stash for home decor projects.

A few years ago I found this really ugly box with drawers at a craft store for practically nothing. I knew the pattern was bad, but I wasn’t ready to change it at the time.

Last year when we started our master bedroom makeover I was finally ready to  commit to new colors, and, of course, use my favorite scrapbook papers!

For this project I picked two similar patterns of 12×12 paper (but you could use any size that works for your project.) I find that using paper collections takes the guesswork out of whether the patterns will work well together.

(The one step I don’t have pictures for was painting the makeup box with the same gray paint we used on the bedroom walls. Just slap on a coordinating color and call it good!)

 I cut the patterned paper the size of my drawer front, then drew lines on both diagonals.

 Next I cut a small square in the center to allow room for the knob.

 I brushed Mod Podge on both the drawer front and the actual paper.

 I then slid the paper over the knob and pressed it into place and I was done!

If you want to neaten up the area with the knob just add a touch of paint that coordinates with the paper.

These drawers are perfect for holding my lipsticks. (I’m embarrassed to tell you that I had over 60 tubes at one time. I know, crazy! I picked them up at the dollar store or with coupons and on sale, always in the search for that perfect shade!)

I love how this makeup storage turned out and it couldn’t have been easier.

Scrapbook paper is one of my favorite ways to add pops of color in a room without spending a lot of time or money. In my home alone I have wall art with scrapbook paper in my bathroom and scrapbook paper in my craft room window frame.

    I love someone who’s fetishist for lipstick is similar to mine. Two weeks ago I thinned out my lipstick to about 25. But I threw out about 9. I even recognized your brands by the picture. I have duplicates of some colors.
    Now, let’s talk about my other problem. ..72 bottles of nail polish. But some are multiples because they discontinue colors all the time.
    My motto .. make life colorful!
