treasured handwritten family recipes in place of the photos

What you will need

  • Old door
  • Paint and paint brush
  • Class cleaner
  • Sponge
  • Several door knobs
  • Screws
  • Photographs
  • Tape
  • Screwdriver
  • Sandpaper

The door

Identify the door that needs to be converted into a photo frame. Remove this
door from its hinges. Remove any hardware that may still be on the door. Clean
the door thoroughly. At this point, you can choose to repaint the door. Always
remember to consider the color of the décor in your home and the color of your
wall.

Glass door

If the door is glass, cover the parts with
glass using an old newspaper. If you are thinking about sanding the parts made of wood, the newspaper
will protect the glass. Apply the first coat of paint. Let it dry. Once it is
completely dry, apply the second coat of paint. While the door is hanged on the wall, it is important that you
paint all its sides for neatness and uniformity. Once the second coat of paint
is dry, apply a clear or matte coat of polyurethane. This ill not only help to
protect the paint, but it will also chic-style for the door.

Remove the paper from the glass and clean it
thoroughly.

Photographs

You may have to size down some pictures
depending on how big or small the new frames are. Tape the photos on the inside
of the glass. Use low adhesive tape that
will allow you to change the photo’s
position without damaging the paper.

Doorknobs

Screw the knobs at the bottom of the new photo
frame using the best electric hammerdrill driver recommended by BCDP. Choose a design that will make the door
look great and unique.

Fit the door to the wall

You may use wall studs or a wall anchor. You
may have to screw the door at four corners.
