Line Your Drawers

Not your 'drawls'. But your drawers. Y'all know about 'drawls' right? Down south underpants are often called 'drawers' and with a Cajun accent like my father's, they sound like 'drawls'. My mom always tells this hilarious story about how after her lingerie shower before her wedding, my Dad had to ask where she had gotten all of those 'ventilated drawls' from!!

Anyway. Lets get back on track. I've been wanting to upholster inside of the drawers of my chests for the longest time. To me, that is like the ultimate luxury, to have soft clean padded interiors of my drawers. But I have put it off, and put it off. So today I got antsy and measured all of the insides of all of my drawers and ordered pretty (scent-free) paper to line them with. Available at Chic Shelf Paper here.

I ordered the charcoal stripe for the drawers of my entry piece. Yes, I'm keepin it real showing you what a mess it is around here! Those mint julep cups are out to remind myself to take them to get monogrammed!

Then I ordered the beige damask for my bedroom chests. I have two of these, they aren't an exact pair, both French antique Louis Phillipe chests on either side of our bed. I obviously didn't style this, you can see how many magazines I'm behind on! My bedroom is just about finished, and I'll leave that big reveal for later because in a few weeks our house is being photographed for a national magazine! Very exciting and I'll update you more on that later!

This is a very simple way you can customize your furniture!

Ha! I was just on that same kick and picked out the identical grey stripe!! I still need to measure and order so you're a step ahead of me. Can't wait for the bedroom reveal!!

Don't know if your mint julips are sterling, but I collect them too, and when I took them in to be engraved, the lady at the store fussed at me for stacking them b/c it scratches them really bad. Just a FYI b/c I had no clue!
