Met Monday.......simple paperwork!

Time for that fun Metamorphosis Monday!
Thanks to our hostess, Susan at http://betweennapsontheporch.blogspot.com/
, for hosting us. Be sure and check out her blog for other Met Monday bloggers, it
is great fun to see what others do!

For this Met Monday, a little cabinet redo that I have wanted to try or do, so did it
on Sunday.
I have this little cabinet in the kitchen, it holds alot of my smaller pieces of milk glass.
But I didn't like that it looked so cluttered looking in just because it is so full.
So my idea, some camouflage.
(Click on any photo to enlarge)

Before ........

I took some left over wallpaper from the kitchen
( it is on the insets in my cabinets and also the interior of my big open shelves).
I put some prints I had and was going to frame but really didn't have the wall space for on the wallpaper using tape. Then I doublestick taped the wall paper to the back of the glass
panels and put them back in!

After......close up of the paperwork,
After.......total piece.
What do you think?
I thought it turned out pretty cute!
I like it better.
( Hey, if you missed them, be sure and scroll down my posts too to see what
fun Mishelle and I had on Saturday.)

I love this idea! It looks great! That's a sweet little cabinet! I may have to borrow this idea! I have an old lawyer's book cabinet in my kitchen and it's packed with dishes and looks pretty messy! I could probably find some pretty wallpaper and do this.Woo Hooness! Thanks so much for the inspirations!
Be a sweetie,
Shelia :)
