Harvest Cabinet Door Sign

In true Ashley fashion, I scored a whole pile of free kitchen cabinet doors the other day from Craigslist.



I've seen some fun possibilities flying around Pinterest and knew I could put my own spin on them.

Blank slate right.  Just a plain (oak?) cabinet door.

With a little spray paint, some help from my Silhouette, voila - the perfect little November-themed "sign".

I'll be honest.  My original intent was to paint this sign white, and have the letters be a copper acrylic color that I've been dying to use.  But, well I had to go with plan B because my "stencil" didn't quite transfer as easily as I had hoped.

{Some times in life, you just don't end up with Plan A.  It's a good lesson to learn, and accept, early on if you can}.

I simply used leftover gold spray paint from this end table re-do.

The font I used was Onyx.  And I then stretched it to fit the dimensions I needed for this particular cabinet (20.5" x 4.5").

I sort of played around with where this little guy was going to find a home for the next month or so.  But ultimately, I think it's fate is in someone else's home.

Mama needs some Christmas shoppin money!

A pretty simple project that cost me nothing since I used all things I already had on hand.  

Can't wait to put these other cabinets to use!

About Me

My photo
I married my best friend in 2006, and we started a family in 2010. Our house is still a work in progress in becoming a home - who knew there would be so many projects with new construction?! I love flavored coffee creamers, reality TV and anything Husky sports-related. My confession is that I only make boxed cookies, don't do grocery delivery (they don't have samples!), and am slightly obsessed with being a mom to boys.
