DIY: Drawer Dividers Make it Neat

Some of my 4-year old son's clothes are in the drawers and eversince he was 2 and a half years old, I let him choose his own clothes from his drawers....which means a messy drawer (any mom should know this)

So ~ I've come up with an easy fix to this one...a divider! diy divider!

I pulled out the drawer from the cabinet and emptied it out first.

Covered the bottom part of the drawer with cars' gift wrapping paper.

Then I made the dividers out of cardboard.

Cut the cardboard to the my desired length, height and width ~ with 1 inch extra on all three sides but the top, so I can fold that part to adhere it to the drawer.

Covered the cardboard with the same wrapping paper that I used on the bottom of the drawer.

I folded all three sides of the cardboard and used hot glue to adhere it to the drawer.

And it looked like this.

Put the clothes back in the drawer and it looked like this.

Did it to the other drawers and whew! it looked good and i feel better :)
