Cabinet Door Makeover

We are joining Kimba again today for her weekly DIY party! I was so inspired by all the amazing ideas from last weeks party, here is what I came up with for this week.

After seeing this post I googled Habitat For Humanity Restore and low and behold there is one here! So I frantically got in the car to explore this fun place! I found these old kitchen cabinets for 2 bucks a piece. I took the hinges off.


Then spray painted just the indention with Valspar baby blue spray paint in satin.



I then cut out some Amy Butler paper and mod podged around the edges




Next came the chalk board paint. I was too lazy to tape, think I might do it next time to get the lines perfecto.





I then wrote with chalk a quote I found on this amazing blog! I loved it and had been waiting to put it in my kitchen!



Here is the finished product! I think it turned out pretty darn cute!!


Side note: I got the cake stand at Goodwill the other day for 4 bucks! LOOOVE it!



I am so glad that you have come.
I will pour out everything inside me so that you may leave
this table satisfied and fortified.
Blessings on your eyes.
Blessings on your children.
Blessings on the ground beneath you.
My heart is a ladle of sweet water, brimming over.
The Red Tent, Anita Diamanti

What a fun idea! You are so creative! Did you use a brush-on or spray chalkboard paint? I have never used them before, do you need two coats??

This is not a comment specific to today's blog entry ~ but could you please mention in your blog the name of the manufacturer for the Oil Rubbed Bronze spray paint you used to paint your chandelier....PLEASE, I want to get some for a project this weekend.....thanks in advance for your prompt attention to my question....
also, is this the same paint you used in the bathroom for the black light fixture and mirror????

The Oil Rubbed Bronze spray paint we used was Krylon from Walmart.

Of course you figured out something to do with those cabinets. Why am I so surprised? You are so talented!

You have just become my new favorite blog to follow, definitely because of your crafty ways, but 100% because the Red Tent is my all time favorite book. What a fantastic quote.
