When I saw these cupboard picture frames on the Creative Crate a few weeks ago, they instantly were added to my ever growing list of projects to do. Unfortunately, I had no idea where to get cupboard doors in my area. So that meant that I either needed to come up with another way of doing it, or resort to taking the doors off my cupboards, because this was one of those projects that I just HAD to do! Well, I need my cupboard doors, plus they weren't really the right side, so this is what I came up with.
I think they look like pretty convincing cupboard doors, don't you? Here is how I did it.
I got 8x10 frames from Michael's that have a really chunky frame. They are $4.99, but I used a 50% off coupon. If I had a router (someday I will!) I would have probably just cut some wood to the size I wanted then routed the edges. But this works too.
I also got some $3 frames from Walmart. I painted the edges of both frames black to that when I lightly sanded the edges the black would show through.
The next part I don't have pictures of, but the frames from Michael's had MDF boards behind the glass that I drilled holes in for the ribbon. Then I removed the glass, painted everything white and sanded the edges. When it was completely dry, I added the ribbons. Then I took the MDV board and put it in the Walmart frames, and glued the Walmart frames onto the Michael's frames using E6000. For the clips, I had some already, but they were all pastel colors, so I spray pained them with Oil Rubbed Bronze paint.
And there you have it! I love them!
