Removing Kitchen Drawer Liners

All of our kitchen drawers were covered with either liners or wallpaper (in 3 different prints). They are actually kind of charming: little mushrooms, flowers, and checkerboard. Never-the-less, we’d like to clean it up and get back to the bare drawers. Here is what we started with:

Most of the liner paper peeled off smoothly. I started by loosening a corner and then pulled really hard to remove the entire piece. There was a bit of sticky residue left behind from the mushroom print and the checkerboard, even after soap and water, so I used a bit of Goo Gone. The floral still-life pattern was actually wallpaper, which scared me at first. Luckily, it was never glued to the drawer – just placed inside. Thank goodness!

After removing all the liners, we were left with clean and natural drawers. I will miss the quirky patterns a little bit, but I am very happy with the final result.
