Frosty.

My entertainment center doors hide a huge mess of DVDs, electronics, and random items. I have covered them in the past with wrapping paper but soon grew tired of that. 

 


I found these really cool overlays that are used in scrap booking. Immediately I thought this would make a good stencil for the doors. 


After some research on frosted glass spray and spray mount, here are the results.

    The chairs are amazing, and I really liked the frosted panes. I always have trouble dressing things up. I have 2 dressers in my bedroom that don't match and I don't know what to do with them... I'd Love some ideas.

  3. Where did you find your stencils? A scrapbook store? What were they called? I would love to do something similar in my house. I'd love any helpful information you could offer. Thanks!

  5. Angie,

    They were in the clearance section at Michaels about six months ago. I completely forget who makes them. I'd just start checking the isles for any cardstock overlay, thingies. Since I'm not a scrapbooker, I really don't know what they're called. You could probably achieve this with some heavy cardstock and an exacto knife. Also, Martha makes some cool punches that you could make your own pattern in the paper.

    Then go get yourself some 3M spray mount and some Rustoleum frost spray at Home depot. Spray the sentcil w/ the adhesive, wait a few mins, place on glass, and spray away with hte frost. Two coats should do it.

    Please post any pics you have if you do the project!!

  10. Very clever! Looks really good. Does your remote work through the frosted glass?

  11. ladies, thanks for stopping by! The remotes work through the glass for sure. The entertainment center was generously dontated to us from an old neighbor who was leaving the building. He must have spent a pretty penny on it because it was solid wood. We were so lucky to just be able to take it.
