By the way, I HATE the newest, cutsie, pretentious word - "up cycle" - you're being creative and reusing what would otherwise be called JUNK/TRASH! Repurpose / recycle - just call it that! Up-cycle is putting lipstick on a pig!
Lay a strip of lace on top of your drawer. Spray-paint right over it and let it dry a bit. Remove lace from insert dresser drawer. Or spray with clear paint , trim and attach drawer pull for little girl's room.
