Medicine Cabinet Door

Remember this little door from my medicine cabinet project? I had a few ideas and suggestions. I'd like to get some vinyl letters for the glass but since I don't know what I want it to say I don't want it to just sit and not realize any of it's boundless potential. So I got an idea from this cute chickadee and decided I was gonna try that with this frame.

I removed the glass pane and placed it on top of a cork square. I like that it's thicker than the roll of the cork.

I cut it to size and shape with my box cutter.

I found this bleached burlap fabric in the odds and ends. $1.67 for 2 yards...think I can handle that. I almost squealed out loud in the aisle. I have been looking for some burlap.
I left about an inch all around the edges. In hindsight I shoulda left more room since I was using upholstery tacks and not hot glue. But it turned out okay anyway.

Used my handy-dandy tacks to hold down my edges. I don't own a glue gun. I know, I should be shot. Shameful for someone who counts themselves a crafter. I don't know how I don't have one, I just don't.

Used my staple gun to attach the ribbon to the back edges. (sorry it's so bright, my camera needs to be replaced)

The plain burlap was a bit boring, I needed to add an embellishment. I tied a bow and sewed a button to it, then sewed it to the cork. It's attached pretty well.

Love it on my living room wall! I love the combination of the burlap with the antiqued frame.


  1. Hey! It is a small world. Umm Sheena and I were roommates the winter of my freshman year at BYU-I. She is awesome. And I just love all of the crafties you guys do! Ridiculous. Wish I had creative talent. Until that far off day I'll just keep stalking you ladies. :) Are you living up in Idaho with your hubby?

  2. I love this! So creative and cheap to make - the best kind! Funny about the glue gun, bought my 1st one as an adult this past week - $10.99 at Joanns with my 50% off coupon, mde the glue sticks more $ than the gun. I'm on the hunt for a staple gun that's electric. mine is manual and I've stapled my hand more times than I care to admit!

  3. I didn't know how to email you but I wanted you to know I did a Lissa inspired cork board and will be posting my version of yours soon on my blog, so fun!
