Since we aren’t remodeling anything anytime soon, I kept my eyes out on yard sale sites on Facebook for people that were. I was looking for glass cabinet doors or windows. It didn’t take too long before I found someone parting with this for less than $10.
The first thing you need to do is remove the hardware and clean the glass. Leave any hardware on the front on, to complete the look, but remove any hanging hardware that helped attach the door to the cabinet. Next measure your panes and figure out what size of photos you will need.
In order to fill my entire pane of glass, I needed vertical 8x10s. I decided to scrounge through all the old photos I have printed and use pictures from varying stages of our life. A couple of my prints that I wanted to use were horizontal, but it was close enough that I was able to fudge them a bit.
Most of my pictures that I printed for my project, I didn’t mind cutting to fit the pane. There were a few pictures that I can’t replace easily and so I elected not to trim them. I started with those pictures first and in the middle, so I slide other pictures under them and tape to them as needed. With just simple scotch tape, I trimmed the images and taped them to the back in between the panes.
While taping, make sure to check the front often to check for any pictures peeking into panes that they shouldn’t be. After my door was filled with pictures, I used 3M picture hanging strips to hang the door on the wall.
