I am a small town girl who is living the dream of owning her own business. I opened the shop in 2005 and it just keeps getting better and better. I love anything crafty but lean towards fabric (of course!) but will try anything at least once. My daughter Shelby helps me in the shop. And of course I couldn't do it without the support of my cute hubby and fantastic son!
I forgot to take a picture of my original door but it looked just like this
I have a thing for old doors, windows, cupboards and anything that I think I can re-purpose. Just ask my husband he has threatened me if I dare to bring any more of them home they are going to be taken to the dump, unless I start to use some of them. Well, after picking up Shelby's necklaces, scarves and other paraphernalia that she leaves lying around the house. I decided to put one of my old cabinet doors to use. I started with just a plain cupboard door I had picked up. I picked up the door for $5.00 at the thrift store, I lightly sanded it, and then applied a coat of gray primer, (spray kind, Kilz), and then applied a coat of white spray paint. Shelby wanted the crystal kind of knobs and I got ours at Home Depot, ($6.00 a piece.) I then used my Silhouette and cut out 3 vinyl frames, (have I mentioned I love my Silhouette?) put a light sealer on it, and walah!! Shelby has no excuse to leave her jewelry around the house now. I have one more door this size and I think I am going to make me one!! This is a super, fast easy project. I had seen something just like this at a local boutique and it was more expensive. Oh, and Shelby loves it!!
