So I bought this cute piece of furniture to house our growing DVD collection.  It has clear glass doors on it.  I love the piece, but I HATE looking at the DVDs.

I wanted to frost the glass, using Armor Etch, but the glass is attached to the wood frame, and I was afraid of destroying the wood.

I decided to add some funky fabric I had left over from a different project.  I just scotch taped it to the inside of the door.

Way to think!  I love it and showed it to my wife, we are going to try it on something similar we have and hate seeing all the stuff inside!

GREAT IDEA!!

That is a perfect solution!  All of our DVDs are on a bookshelf and the eye just zeros into all those colors.  Nice job!

That's such a clever idea! I don't particularly mind looking at my DVDs, I guess since I don't have a lot of them, but I may have to borrow your idea just because I think it's adorable. Smiley

barraGOUDA - Absolutely! I "borrow" craftster ideas constantly.  I'd feel honored if you "borrowed" one of my ideas.

craftycarrie, you just gave me the perfect solution to a problem I have, not with dvds, but with glass fronted cabinet similar to yours yours but mine has a huge crack down the pane.  Bonus: when I cover it I can store my ugly computer things (cords,program cds), which are crying for a space to live, instead of feeling obligated to set something nice in there like a store display.

Thank-you!
