I have finished it! It's true! Didn't think it would happen today, but a great friend of mine took some of my kids for a playdate and the other kid took a nap (miracle of miracles)! So, I had some free time.
I started out with a very plain cupboard door I found in the ever-trusty "as-is" section of Ikea. Every time I find a usable door there, I buy it (whether I have a plan for it or not). This one was much to boring for my giveaway winner!
I found this nice trim at Michael's and cut it down to add to the top and bottom with my trusty wood glue. Unfortunately, my clamps weren't big enough so I had to find another method to weigh the wood down....like it??
After it dried, I applied a coat of Rustoleum Ivory in satin.
While that dried, I found a lovely font I liked and then traced it onto the board. Colored it in with my black acrylic paint pen and stood back to admire my work. And nearly fell asleep with boredom. Hmmm....
I decided this one needed to be sanded down and glazed over, too. I don't know why I love the look so much, but I do! I LOVE it.
I dug into my knob stash and found some silver knobs to complete the piece. Except....they didn't look very good. They were all diffferent finishes (shiny, satin...) and one even had white on the front of it. Not good. Time to make it more cohesive...time for some oil-rubbed bronze. Ahhhh....
I hope you like it!
