Inspired by FAMILY ♥️

5 Materials
3 Days
Let's get those old FAMILY photos out of boxes, suitcases and drawers and pit them out where everyone can enjoy them.....not enough space you said then try this! A client came to me with his old t.v. cabinet and said I'm going to throw this away and get a new one,what! no! So I said to him go get me copies of your family pictures and let's bring new life to them and this cabinet
So this is the cabinet where he puts his t.v. it was a goodwill find many years ago and he put the tile on was very nice real wood and heavy....ok so let's get started 😃
The tile grout and trim on top had a tan color so I took the time and painted it with a light gray chalk paint... there are a few paint splatters on the tile but it was easy clean up 😉
Getting all the pictures arranged and cut out and placed the way I wanted them... this was a little time consuming but worth it🤔
After the pictures was ready to go I use the modge podge and started building the collage on the drawers and the cabinet door😉
By adding feet to this cabinet it just enhance the look, I picked up the hardware at Lowe's... every easy to put on
All finished and when my client came in to pick it up he was moved to tears ( happy tears) just seeing the history of his family and all being together again he was so happy.... and so was I
So let your family inspire you and bring them all together so others can see who you are and where you came from😍

    What type of copy paper did you use to duplicate the family photos?

    Ink jet or laser printer? Copy machine?

    Wonderful way to display the family generations!

    I love this! I have a changing table that I actually use for a tv stand. I love it cause it has drawers for storage. I'd love to do this to that but I don't have a ink jet or laser printer, so what could I do to copy the pics? Can I just use the pics themselves? I do have allot of dups of pics.......Really, really love this idea!!!!!!!!

    Hi. Absolutely love this! After the pics were put on, did you apply a sealer to the whole piece? (Spray acrylic, another coat of modPodge, something like that) Or no?
