This past weekend was no exception. My secret sister liked costume jewelry and I wanted to give her a place to showcase her necklaces. This cabinet door has been in my garage for almost a year. A good friend of mine gave it to me and I had planned to make it into a chalkboard menu for my kitchen. But I never got around to it! So I decided to turn it into a jewelry board.
The first thing I did was spray paint it white. I didn't bother to cover the face of the door, since I was planning on covering that with patterned paper. It took a couple of coats of spray paint to cover the brown wood completely.
The hardest part was deciding what paper to use in the middle. I agonized for weeks over this! I wanted it to match her master bathroom/closet and I had to go on advice of friends who had actually been in her master bathroom. I used coordinating paper from the Momenta Chloe's Garden paper pack. I mod podged it right to the face of the cabinet door.
My husband drilled 3 holes and I added 3 drawer knobs. This will be where she hangs her jewelry. And that's it!! After deciding what paper to use, it all came together very quickly.
I love that the jewelry will add lots of visual interest and texture to the board. And it won't matter if she has long necklaces that hang off the end, especially if it's mounted to a wall.
Overall, I'm really happy how it turned out. It's something fun and unique and it was very inexpensive to create. I already had the spray paint and the paper, and the knobs were about $3. Now I am on the lookout for another cabinet door because I want to make one for myself!!
Thanks for stopping by today, friends!! I'm linking to these parties...
