Make it Colorful

About a year ago, Liat bought one of those plain, standard IKEA tv tables. Her roommate at the time absolutely didn't want white, so Liat reluctantly purchased the black version. Like me, Liat loves bright, cheerful colors. But at the time, there was the possibility that the roommate would one day buy the table from her, so being a good sport, she went along.

This fall, Liat moved into her own apartment. One of the first things she asked me to do was to somehow perk up the sliding doors of the cabinet front of the table. It didn't take me long to come up with an idea I was sure she would love.

Using the inserts from videos and dvds and some Mod Podge, I decorated the sliding doors with Disney collages. In the end, I used images from 28 different movies. I also used a paper punch in the shape of a Mickey Mouse silhouette to make 36 hidden Mickeys that are scattered throughout the two collages. A couple of them were coated with glow in the dark paint, because sometimes I just can't help myself.

She loves it!
