REVAMPED CUPBOARD DOOR March 29 2015, 0 Comments
Ok so I wanted a quick and easy project to do this weekend and after having my 2 beautiful granddaughters over the other day I had girlie décor on the brain. I have a variety of cupboard doors and decided I should revamp one as wall art. I had this really pretty paint color (peru) which is a beautiful deep pink. I mixed up a batch of chalk style paint and painted the entire cupboard 2 coats. I felt the paint needed a bit more depth and texture so I dry brushed white craft paint here and there until I was happy with the color. I traced the words PARIS on the top and bottom frame as well tried my best to free hand 2 dress forms on the sides and a few swirls on each corner.
Normally I would have taken more time and traced and painted the image but I was looking for a QUICK weekend project! I found some solid pink scrapbook paper in my stock and decided to print this very popular and amazing GRAPHIC'S FAIRY IMAGE and decoupage the paper onto the door instead. (unfortunately I cut off the bottom scrolls as I couldn't fit the entire image).
To finish off this project I gave the entire door a coat of clear wax and acrylic sealant for added durability.
THE BEFORE PICTURE OF THE DOOR IS NOT THE EXACT DOOR ALTHOUGH SIMILAR. AS ALWAYS I SO OFTEN FORGET TO SNAP THAT BEFORE PICTURE.
AMAZING the things you can create with a vintage cupboard door!
