A while back I found an old oak cabinet door with a leaded glass insert at the thrift store. I didn’t know what to do with it but I knew something would come to mind eventually. Sure enough inspiration struck today.
The cabinet door was only $2.92 at Goodwill.
First I loosened the brackets holding the glass in the cabinet door frame.
With the glass out of the cabinet frame I removed the hinges.
I painted out the cabinet frame with Annie Sloan Pure White. This is the frame after one coat.
After the second coat of paint I took some very fine sandpaper and distressed the frame.
The cabinet frame had a knob hole so I glued an old skeleton key to hide the hole and add visual interest.
The plate came from my stash of mismatched dishes.
Hopefully, I can change out the plate for a more versatile piece.
Do you recognize these dried roses? They graced my Valentine Mantel earlier this month. Basically my only cost for this project was the price of the cabinet door. I already had the paint, sandpaper, key, and plate on hand.
I’m glad you stopped by today to see how I upcycled a discarded cabinet door into a charming piece of art.
