DIY Instagram Photo Display Board

By 2:53 PM , ,

I hope you all had a lovely Thanksgiving! I had a great one! I took a vacation day Friday and let me tell you...it's amazing what you can get done when you have a four day weekend instead of two day weekend. If only every week could be like that! :)

I decided in addition to eating a lot, decorating my house for Christmas, watching lots of great football games Saturday, and doing some shopping, that this weekend would be a great time to complete some projects that I have been meaning to do the last several months. 

I thought I would share with you all the first project I completed this week. 
A DIY Instagram Photo Display Board I hung in my hallway. 


I actually came up with this idea all by myself! Which honestly makes myself even more pleased with the final product. I wanted a way to be able to display some of my instagram pictures and thought this would be a great way to do.

For this project I purchased an old cabinet door at a yard sale early fall. I then went online to Printer Pix and ordered some instagram pictures. I took the cabinet and sanded it and painted it with three coats of paint I picked out at Home Depot to match my living room/entry hall. After painting the cabinet itself it was time for my least favorite part...decoupaging the clothespins. To do this I picked out a tissue paper I liked at the party store and ripped the tissue paper into tiny pieces. I used Modge Podge to glue the tissue paper on the clothes pins and then wood glued the clothes pins once they had dried to the cabinet. Finally, I picked out a a drawer pull from Home Depot and screwed it on to have the glass finish. Last step was to put up my pictures and hang the cabinet. I love it! What do you guys think?

  1. This looks great! I need to be better about printing out all the pictures I take, and this is the perfect way to display them. I cannot believe you took the time decoupage each clothes pin, that is dedication ;) Good job!

    1. You should do it! It wasn't hard...the most tedious part was decoupaging the tissue paper.
