DIY - Cabinet Door to Wall Decor


I hope everyone had a great weekend and a good start to your week! This weekend we headed out to our county fair to spend some time with our grandkids on Friday night and Saturday Shane and I just walked around enjoying the sights and food!

Today I want to share with you how you can turn cabinet doors to wall décor! My mom is redecorating a section of our church and I wanted to create some wall décor that would match the area with a positive message.

I found these cabinet doors at our local Rebuild store that supports Habitat for Humanity and only paid $2 each for them.

I then enlisted my Dad to remove the outer edges. Since they were bound with glue he cut along each end and was then able to remove the edging.

This left me with the inner section of the cabinets to create my décor. I then sanded them to make the edges smooth and so the paint would adhere

I knew I wanted to give them a distressed look so I started with two coats of Martha Stewart Greek Tile paint.
Once they were dry I then painted them with Martha Stewart Vanilla Bean.



Then came the fun part of sanding and distressing.
































Using my Silhouette and cream vinyl I selected the font and size I wanted to add a positive message reminding everyone we are to “Love One Another”.

You can really use your CreativiT to use different colors to match your décor and add designs or phrases. The next time I do this project I think I will try using the entire cabinet.

So what do you think?

I link to these parties!
