This weekend I picked up an armoire for additional storage in my daughters room. I chose it because it was large and could store alot, yet with the glass windows, it looked light and airy in the space.
I knew it was pointless to organize a display through the glass windows because my five year old would tear it apart in seconds.
This was a perfect opportunity to add additional functionality and custom color by covering the glass with beautiful wrapping paper! Problem solved for under $5.00! Whooohooo!
Later, when she's older, the paper can easily be removed to reveal the glass as originally intended.
Here's how I did it:
- Wrapping paper
- Foam Core
- Spray mount
- X-acto knife
- Take measurements for window.
- Spray mount wrapping paper to foam core.
- Use X-acto knife to cut foam core to size.
- Press foam core pieces into windows, and you're done!
I went with a pink and turquoise floral print to layer into the Bohemian vibe of the room.
It's MUCH easier to spray mount wrapping paper to foam core first and then cut BOTH out at same time vs. cutting one and trying to match to the other. When pressing the foam core into the windows, if there were any areas that needed further trimming, I marked them w/ a pencil, trimmed the edge and pressed back into window.
