I've got a little (very little) project that I was working on and I'm just not sure what I think of the results. I need someone to tell me either:
"Fabulous! Love it! You're clearly smart and attractive."
"Hate it! What were you thinking. You're putting on a little weight"
I can take it either way.
I have a large corner cabinet in my kitchen with a glass front door. In theory, the glass door is really nice and if I were the type to have nicely organized collections of matching pottery and dishware then the glass door would be great. I could display my large collections in the cabinet and it would serve the purpose of beautiful display and practical storage at the same time. Unfortunately, I'm more of an Elmo sippy-cup and Spiderman plastic plate kind of gal right now so I need practical storage that hides things.
I thought maybe I'd just put a piece of frosted glass in the cabinet so that my junk would stay hidden. But then I remembered some of the fabulous things that other bloggers have done with scrapbook paper like The Nester here and Blanca at For the Love of My Home and Life here and Rhoda at Southern Hospitality here And thought I'd give it a shot with this cabinet.
Here is what it looked like before:
And then used two types of scrapbook paper to fill in the window panes. The only way I could get a decent picture was to use the flash.
So what do you think? I can take it if you think it looks dumb. Here's a closeup of the paper. The background paper is a creamy yellow and the other paper is kind of a yellow/brown/black floral.
Then the inside of the cabinet didn't look very nice. See?
So I did this:
Tell me what you think? I really want to know. I can take it! Keep in mind that we're trying to sell our house. We have a contract on it (actually 2) but they're both contingent on selling another house so we continue to show it and do open houses hoping to find a buyer who can actually buy it.
Anyway, I don't want it to be a weird kind of distraction for a potential buyer but I do love being able to use that cabinet for normal everyday storage.
