What You Need

  • Faux leather: Rosco faux leather in fuchsia and red, $33 per yard, bandjfabrics.com
  • Nightstand: Mid-Century 18"W x 15"D x 24"H nightstand in white, $299, westelm.com
  • scissors
  • spray mount
  • awl (optional)

Step 1

Unscrew the knobs and set them aside.

Step 2

Cut two pieces of faux leather the size of the drawer fronts, adding 3/4 inch to all sides. Cut a ¾-inch-square notch out of each corner.

Step 3

Center one piece of material over each drawer front, then adhere it with spray mount. Fold the excess over each drawer’s top, bottom, and sides (the cutout notch in each corner makes it easier to fold). Adhere with spray mount. Let dry.

Step 4

Using scissors or an awl, poke a hole in the material for the knobs, and reattach them.
