Remember me posting about ideas for my twins bedroom? If not, you can find the Teen Bedroom Ideas here. Well, the painting is underway and I wanted to get moving on some projects for that room. I wanted a place where they could hang backpacks or coats and something that would also function as a piece of art in there. I've had this cupboard door in my garage for a few years. I picked it up at the Re-store for 4.00 and knew that would be the perfect thing to use for my base.
I taped off the door so that I could paint the inside. I left the original finish on the outside of the door since the walls are gray. I thought it would be a great contrast to the gray wall. I painted the insides white with Martha Stewart craft paint. It took 3 coats.
While the paint was drying I added this tape to the edge of the cupboard door. I found it on clearance at Michaels (see pic above) and thought it would be a great addition to the door. Then I measured the door and attached my 6 hooks. Note: It's best to predrill the holes on cupboard doors. It makes the job a whole lot easier!
I had some images of our Michigan sports teams as well as the boys school mascot. I cut them out and then Mod Podged them onto the door. I then added a sealer.
I couldn't hang the finished shelf because of painting the room but when I do the room reveal I'll make sure you see it hanging. I have to apologize for the poor photos! I could not get rid of the glare. One of these days soon I'll take a photography class. Anyway, this was a very, very inexpensive way to add our sports theme to the room and hopefully some organization.
There are lots of different ways you can use doors in your home decorating. I have another door project I'll show here in the near future. Have you used doors in you decorating? If so share with me what you did.
