  2. The bottom part of the drawer is the part that will be laid up against the wall. Therefore, you we’re going to give it a nice backdrop
  3. Cut gift wrap or any type of nice paper you prefer to the size of your backdrop
  4. Once cut, use spray adhesive & attach it to the back
  5. Attach a french cleat to the wall & back of drawer
  6. Last but not least, hang it up!

  2. Measure 6 inches from the front (or however deep you prefer your shelf to be)
  3. Mark the 6 inches all around the drawer
  4. Take a jigsaw & cut along the line
