  1. Unscrew the old hardware and patch the holes with wood filler. Remove the drawers. 
  2. Paint the frame, and prime the drawer fronts and side edges. Let dry. 
  3. Stand the drawers next to one another faceup so they’re touching. Cut enough wallpaper to cover all the drawer fronts, and adhere it with wallpaper paste. Let dry.
