Lining a Box with Fabric – Easy Steps to Line Any Box with Fabric

Transcript

Learn how to make a decorative and functional lining for a box or drawer

Old chests of drawers, armoires, jewel boxes and more can be given an updated look with a simple fabric lining that you can add. On furniture, the liner may protect clothing from snagging on rough places in the wood. In a jewel box, the liner protects and enhances, possibly serving as a way to customize the box as a gift for a special person. The type of fabric and design you choose contributes to the final character--silks and velvets add elegance while simple cotton renders a more homespun look. For this project, we use a cotton print to add color and appeal to a primitive wooden box from Asia.
