Fabric as a drawer liner

I found this post on Infarrantly Creative a few months ago and have been meaning to try it. 

 She gives a step by step tutorial on how to line your drawers and cabinets with fabric rather than contact paper.  I loved the idea, but was a bit skeptical as to how easy it would be.  I have looked and looked for drawer liners that I thought would coincide with the rest of my kitchen and they were either really dull and ugly or extremely expensive (like this Flower Riot Shelf Paper from Chicshelfpaper.com at $3.25 per square foot!)

So I found some adorable fabric and decided to go for it.  Here is what I learned.

1.  Measure 3 times… I measured twice and somehow mine ended up about 3/4 of an inch short on the length, which does not look terrible but is not perfect. 

2.  It is quite wipable which is something I was concerned with as this is under my kitchen sink.

3.  Only took about 3 hours before I could put all of my belongings back in the cabinet. 

Be sure to check out the Tutorial on Infarrantly Creatives Blog for more information on how to do this yourself.

Here is what it turned out like … what do you think?
