I recently found some great vintage cabinet door panels at an antique mall. They are wonderfully faded and perfectly chippy! I bought different colors and different sizes at a cost of $4.00 - $8.00 per panel.
It has been fun using them as the background for other elements. However, it has been more of a challenge than I thought!!!
I have sold a couple of the successful ones in my Etsy shop.
This one made a great hanger for the boudoir.
The owl hook is also vintage. (The customer loved owls.)
I added a double, vintage iron sconce to this old drawer front.
It was definitely a favorite.
It was hanging here at BCH while I had it listed.
I fell in love with it and decided to keep it.
When I went to take it out of the shop, it had sold!!!
So, I decided to make another one for myself
I used another white door panel.
I had this wreath with the cupids… Hobby Lobby.
I painted a metal hook white and
I made the number on the computer as a pattern to paint inside the wreath.
I thought these elements had potential…but guess what?
I didn’t love it!
I KNOW THIS IS SUPPOSED TO BE THE AFTER PHOTOGRAPH!!!
SORRY, I DIDN’T TAKE ONE…
I JUST TOOK IT APART AND STARTED ON PLAN B.
I flipped it over to the equally charming black side.
I found these stick on letters left over from another project.
I assembled it.
I didn’t like this either…but at least I photographed it this time!
(On To Plan C)
I Give Up!!!
It will be a towel holder until I come up with another idea.
Can You Handle One More Bad Idea ???
Get ready, this one is really B-A-D!
I TOLD YOU!!! What on Earth was I thinking?
I purchased this ragamuffiny, Captain Hookless , Czar - looking dude thinking it was cool.
I thought it looked like something off an old ship that had been in the ocean for hundreds of years.
The sad part is that I used my only gray panel.
It’s glued on with lots of Gorilla Glue and I can’t get it off!
I am going to keep trying to pry it off. If I am not successful,
I can always list it at Halloween!
I only have two more door panels left.
The wood grain and color on the bottom one is fabulous!
Maybe, I will paint this little mirror white and use it.
The only problem is…I don’t trust my ideas anymore!!!
I bought this door with the intentions of taking it apart and using the panels.
Now, I have changed my mind.
It is better off remaining a door until I get my mojo back!!!
