Update: Hat Shop Display Cabinet

Now that I have ordered all the hats to fill the shop, I decided to finish the display cabinet. I created a mirror back cabinet to allow the back of the hats to be seen. I found this mirrored plastic sheet in Joann's. It looks just like a real mirror and can be cut with an X-acto knife. I used the back of the cabinet as a cutting guide. The cabinet was too tall for the room, I had to cut it down, which required me to take the top off. This adjustment turned out to be good, because it allowed me to easily place the mirror inside. I added 3D plastic stickers to decorated the sides and used metallic gold and antique white acrylic paints. I chose this paisley scrapbook paper as the wallpaper for the shop and made more hat stands.

I left the protective film on until the glue dried

I added a small piece of clear plastic underneath the shelf until the glue dried to protect the mirror


  1. Hello Jocelyne,
    Well done! It looks so beautiful, so accurate, and very elegant. You have a wonderful eye for detail and color.
    Big hug,
