I love planting succulents, I don’t know a whole lot about them, but to me having these your home is the  modern way to live! It also adds a natural element to your home decor. From kitchen drawer, upcycle to a planter box!


  • White Paint (I used KRYLON spray paint)
  • Kitchen Drawer
  • Primer (KRYLON) works great
  • Slate Blue (KRYLON spray paint)
  • Plastic (to layer the inside) I used gallon size zip lock bags
  • Staple Gun
  • Felt Dots (that’s what I call them) for the bottom legs
  • Philips screw driver
  • Contact Paper
  • Staple Gun

Step 1- Clean out the drawer completely and wipe down using a wet rag

Step 2- Once the drawer is dry, spray on primer. I chose slate Blue by #KRLYON for the final color.

Step 3- Once everything is completely dry, use plastic lining. I used zip lock bags. Line the drawer from corner to corner overlapping leaving NO gaps and staple in place using a staple gun. You don’t want water seeping through. (I forgot to take a photo of that process, but you get the idea).

Step 4- Add contact paper for a little more character in your planter/box.
