Cabinet Door Wall Art

 

My last post featured a cabinet door repurposed into a fun chalkboard sign.  But I couldn’t stop there.

While browsing the Habitat For Humanity ReStore for this post, I came across some retro cabinet doors that were just screaming for a makeover! So I bought a bunch.

Seriously might be the most inexpensive wall art!

Martha has great paint colors!

Some wood filler makes the holes from the handles just disappear.

And it always needs a good sanding. I love the sponge sanders because they get down in the nooks and crannies much better.

I love color! I used a creamy base color over the whole thing, then painted each square a different color.

I then got the sander out again and roughed up the edges and paint. This is one of my favorite looks.

Next up is the secret weapon. . . Valspar Antiquing Glaze. I absolutely love this stuff. It just finishes a piece so well by adding the right amount of texture and depth.

But it works well here, in my office!

I stare at it everyday.  The colors, the glaze, the shape, it makes me happy! And it was so easy and so inexpensive!
