Walk-By Closet

  • Two pieces of 2-by-four-inch wood
  • Leveler
  • Screwdriver
  • Sander
  • Wool felt
  • Needle and thread
  • 1/2-inch dowels

Lavender Drawer Liner

Steps:6

  • Measuring tape
  • Scissors
  • Fabric, such as prewashed linen
  • Straight pins
  • Chalk
  • 1/2-inch-wide Velcro
  • About 12 ounces dried lavender
