I have a new project to share!
We have a TV stand/media cabinet with clear glass doors. We have a dvd player and a stereo thing in there, along with a few other gadgets and a lot of cords and our 2 remaining dvds – we sold the rest to fye last month! for cash money =)
Hubby was getting sick of seeing clutter and I was getting sick of him talking about spray-can frosting the doors to hide our things. I didn’t think the doors would look good frosted because the pale color would bring more contrast and attention to the media cabinet. Hubby saw my point, but we didn’t have a good compromise solution.
I came up with a plan to get some black rice paper or some other dark colored translucent material, but I couldn’t find any at Michaels and I didn’t want to pay fancy paper store prices.
And then my brain came up with a solution. The answer just popped into my head as we drove home from Michaels. (That’s what long mulling will do.)
Dark brown tissue paper! …which I had in my rescued-wrapping-paper stash, thanks to some wrapping-happy relatives. Out of the 4 sheets I had, 2 were free of tape and tears and more than big enough to cover the glass. You’ll see in the pictures I didn’t need much else – scissors and some tape. 10 minutes later… DONE!
And we’re both happy with the result.
Cost $0. woo hoo!
