Fall Sign



I have been itching to make something for fall.  I had bought a cabinet door from a recycle center and had some old cedar fence boards to use, so I put them together, and this is what I came up with!

Fall Sign




I started out with a plain unfinished cabinet door.


I glued on a wood embellishment and painted the whole project brown.





Then, I painted over the brown with and Heirloom white paint




I then sanded it a bit here and there to give it a little of an antique look.



For the letters - I cut some old cedar fence boards to the size I wanted.



Then, I cut out some stencils with my cricut (any stencil will work).


I painted the letters.


Lastly, I glued the letters to the cabinet door.

Lovely Little Birds

It has been such a busy summer with the kids that I haven't been posting some of my fun projects, so I wanted to get this fun bird post in before the summer is completely gone!

Birds


I started out with a windowed cabinet door.



I painted it an Heirloom white and antiqued it a little.



Next, I glued some jute to the back side of the window (the branch the birds will sit on).



I cut the birds out of different scrapbook paper and used some double sided tape to attache them to the front.



Birds projects are so fun!





Thanks so much for stopping by!

Cabinet Door Flag

In my thrifting I came across a few cabinet doors, and I just had the urge to make one into a flag.  See what you think.



What you will need:
Cabinet door
Small strips of wood
Paint
Sandpaper
Faux Glaze

First I painted and antiqued the frame part of the cabinet using gray paint.  There is a tutorial HERE on how to do this.



I then painted the strips and antiqued them a bit also.  There is a tutorial HERE


Then I assembled the flag.



Then it was time to do the stars.



First I made a pattern for the sides of the star, traced them and cut them out of script scrapbook paper.



Then, I used some Modge Podge to adhere the scrapbook paper to the star.


Lastly, I glued the stars on the flag.

I love flag decor!

Wedding Sign


I often end up making things for weddings, so I decided to make something unique.

Mr. & Mrs.


What you will need:
Chalkboard
Pattern
Stylus
Transfer paper
Chalkboard marker / chalk
Fence boards






I didn't get any pictures when I was doing the design on the chalkboard, but HERE is a tutorial on how I create my chalkboards


Then I cut some old fence boards to the size, so cut them to whatever will fit your project.



Next, you will want to fasten the pieces of wood together.  I was going to glue mine together, but my handy husband suggested something a bit more sturdy.  He used his pocket hole jig to screw the boards together.




I added a little paint to the boards, because I like the look.



Lastly, I glued the chalkboard to the boards!



It turned out to be a fun project!



Thanks so much for stopping by!

Jewelry Hanger


My daughter loves to where jewelry, but her necklaces were tangled up in a drawer in an organizer on her dresser. I decided to  maker her a jewelry hanger to help her keep her necklaces untangled.  She loves it!

Jewelry


First, I took an ordinary cabinet door, drilled holes where I wanted the pegs and glued them in.  I also glued a wood embellishment in the middle.



Next, I painted the cabinet door a silvery/gray color.  I like a contrasting color under the top color.


Then, I painted it one of my favorite paint colors: Herloom White.  I painted a couple coats.



Next, I sanded it a bit to antique it.


Here is a picture of it before my daughter hung some of her jewelry on it.


My daughter was so excited to put here jewelry on it!
