Today, I am sharing a project that I did in my office/craft room. The room is almost done and I can't wait to show it to you.
This project will give you little insight into the theme (if you want to call it that) of the room. It is a mix of Fashion, Music and Sports. All of which are very important to me.
Ikea actually makes a door for the Expedit, but they are kind of expensive in my opinion. I wanted to do a door that was cheaper. I originally was going to do a more elaborate door, but after some research I found that it was going to be too complicated to do. Then, I found this idea from Dans le Townhouse. Cheap and easy to do. My kind of project.
Here is how I made mine.
12x12 canvas (I bought a 7 pack at Michael's and used a coupon to get a discount)
Screw Eyes (Smallest size)
1/2" Cup Hooks
12x12 Album Cover Prints (I had made at a local printer)
First measure and mark where you want your screw eyes to go on the Expedit. I used a hammer to start the screw then used pliers to turn it into the Expedit Shelf. I probably will use a drill next time to make the hole first. That was the hardest part.
Next, measure and mark where you want your cup hooks to go on the canvas. They need to be the same as your screw eyes.
Paint on some Mod Podge to the whole canvas.
Then lay your print down into the Mod Podge and let it dry.
Hang it and you are done. Very easy and way cheaper than 4 doors from Ikea.
Have a nice weekend.
