Hated My Old Mobile Home Doors!


I hated my mobile home doors. I tried painting some but did not like the results. My funds are very low.Then I saw scrap booking paper in big books on sale. I bought them and decided I would decoupage them, in random layouts. I have been more than happy with the results.

I hated these mobile doors for many years, then while shopping in a major chain, I spotted Scrap booking pages, there were lots of styles and they were only $5.00 on sale. I bought a couple of books. Not knowing exactly how I would use them. Then my light bulb came on, decoupage them. I lightly sanded then wiped down the surface, the I used Elmers glue to attach. I am going to poly coat them later on.
Soo much brighter!
Soo much brighter!
Be sure to clean the surface well, and lightly sand. I put glue on all corners, and all over back, smoothed out after I attached them where I wanted them. Easy peasey! I used different designs for my bedroom doors to go along with the theme I have there.

    I was thinking about doing something similar to a wall in my 1970's beat up old mobile home. This is awesome. :)
