Step 3:
So that you do not drill too many holes in the wall, you can glue the smaller boxes to the large ones. Brush the front side of the small box with wood glue and press them together by using a clamp. Let dry.
Step 4:
Making the templates:
Use a pencil to draw the desired motif on cardboard and cut out with the small scissors. Then fix the template with double sided tape on the drawer front and dab the black craft paint with the stippler. The brush in this case is dipped with just a little color. Important: Any area that is not covered by the stencil will be black afterwards.

Step 5:
Drill a hole in the top third of the can with the cordless drill and metal drill bit Then, with the wood bit drill holes for the knobs (they serve here as a hook) in some drawers. Then attach the can with the screw, nut and washer. Since the furniture knobs usually have very long thread, they should be sewn off with a hacksaw. For this stick the knobs from the inside through the drilled hole in the drawer. That way you can see how much you have to saw off. Then turn the furniture knob around, insert on the right side and secure with a nut.
Step 6:
Now arrange the boxes on the wall and screw. Small boxes can also be easily installed above. You can take them down when you need them.
