Cabinet Door Collage

Scrap cabinet doors are a great find to use as a base for putting together picture collages. I found some great tutorials and inspiration over at A Thousand Words and The Creative Crate.

The ReStore is a great place to find cheap cabinet doors that are usually in great condition.
This one I found for $5!

Mod Podge is a girl's best friend! Use your sponge brush to coat a thin layer on the glass. Try to keep the size of Mod Podge to the size of the picture. I went over the size a bit and needed to wipe the excess off. Its not the easiest to remove when its completely dried so be sure to wipe away any excess while its still wet.

Place your picture directly on the paste. Let it completely dry. Brush a thin layer over top of each picture. Let completely dry. 

I had let over curtains from Ikea that I also used for the Frame Within a Frame project. Its great to use with it being so stretchy and light. Place your fabric on the back of the door and staple in place. 

 I added a painted black text from Michael's Arts and Craft Store with my glue gun.

 I choose to off center it to the left. 
Completely centered look to heavy and deliberate.
 I love the contrast it gives against the white cabinet. 

I LOVE the way it turned out.
 It holds pictures of my girls in their own personal moments. 
Cherished and loved. 

Linking up to these awesome parties!
