Tutorial on dressing up a cabinet!

Good morning! Happy Labor Day to all of my USA friends!  As many of you know, I've been redecorating my basement.  It all started back in March, when we had flooding from a broken drain tile. We had to have all of that fixed, which meant taking part of the wall down, digging outside, Permaseal....the whole nine yards.   After we knew we were dry for several months we decided to redecorate.  So I will show you the entire basement later this week.  For now, I have a quick tutorial on how to spruce up a cabinet using fabric and foam core. I chose this chevron stripe.
Here is my IKEA cabinet before and after.  I think the addition of the fabric really brightens it up a lot!  

Here's how to do it.......
What I love about this idea, is when I don't like it, or want to change the look, I simply pull the foam core out and there is absolutely no damage to my cabinet!  
I am not quite sure what I am doing plans as of yet.  I am hoping to get in my craft room at some point.  It's been days and I miss it.  
Have a great day in whatever you do!
