Hey,

Its been awhile since I've been on here.  I joined right before my daughter was born and well....lets just say that my craftiness was put on hold.  However, I am slowly trying to come back and work crafts back into our lives.  I did this a while ago when I was pregnant.  we live in an apartment and the closet doors are hideous.  So I used some contact paper in light and dark wood grain and bright green to create a much prettier door for the baby's closet.  I loved how it turned out. 

before: icky brown doors



in progress: the transformation



after: the finished product



and two more photos of a few more of the room's delights...the window seating with origami birds and flash card border





thanks for looking.

We have those same hideous doors in our rental house. I love what you did and may try my hand with the same. I also love the mobile and the alphabet. Very clever and smart!

thanks!  i played around with ideas on how to camouflage the ugly doors.  i was going to just remove them and hang up curtains (something i've done in other rentals) however this was a nice way to turn an eyesore into a centerpiece in the room.  it really pulls everything together in the room. 

and just think of the possibilities for design...endless.
