I was inspired by one of my favorite stores,
Here’s the photo of inspiration from my catalog…
I love mirrors and doors for decor so this instantly attracted me.
The price, not so much.
So…how can I make this, or something similar???
My mind quickly went down into my basement.
I thought of a french door that is located in a room that my husband uses as his “man cave”.
He is a bow hunter, and stores all of his “stuff” down in this room.
So, I decided to…
I asked Pop if he minded and of course he didn’t.
He never closes it, and it’s a gorgeous door that’s never seen.
This room was not finished when we bought the house and still isn’t.
I think the previous owner must have found the door at a garage sale or something
because it doesn’t match the other doors in the house.

I actually had a chalk board here that I moved so this was a perfect spot.
After applying a bunch of black & white photos (I had previously ordered) with Zots (see below),
I decided to screw on some Rope Lights on the back to help illuminate the door.
Zots were great for applying the pictures to the window.
I also purchased a Glass Door Knob and spray painted the hardware that came with it,
and the back of the handle to give it that distressed look. It even came with keys…
Presenting my illuminated photo door…
Time goes by fast guys…capture it/display it anyway you can.
I’m only 43, but every time I look at the photos of when our girls were infants I get teary.
Daphne & Val are still pretty young, but I miss the baby days and I
cherish those memories
with all of my heart.
If you look closely I added some Adhesive Crystals here and there…because that’s what I do…
Below you will see it with out having the lights on.
I will probably only light it up on special occasions. I could always move it, too!
