Cabinet Door Stenciled Sign - The Kim Six Fix

Cabinet Door Stenciled Sign

Have some old cabinet doors on hand? Whether you have remodeled or found them junkin, make these doors into signs. This diy project is easy to do and uses most items you already have on hand. Make a cabinet store sign to give as a gift, for your own home decor, or to sell at a craft / vintage fair.
A night on the town might mean a fancy dinner or dancing for some, but for us it means thrifting.


One place that makes us both happy is the Habitat for Humanity ReStore.
Upon a recent night on the town, we explored a new ReStore in our area.
In one little corner there were all these brand new cabinet doors priced at $1 or $2 each!!!!!!

They must have been from a remodel, or new home, and something when wrong. Their loss turned our gain.

Yep, grabbed those up real quick like.

Turning these doors into a Cabinet Door Sign is super easy.

Items needed:
Instructions:
  1. Wipe or clean off door as needed (if really grimy this is great).
  2. Distress if desired, by sanding lightly or applying an antiquing glaze.
  3. Take stencil and measure to find center. Tape stencil down with painters tape like this:
  4. cabinet-door-sign-stencil-sized
  5. Dap paint on stenciled area, carefully making sure you don't apply too much. Also, don't apply in a back and forth motion as you will end up with paint under the stencil. THIS WORKS GREAT.
  6. Carefully remove tape and peel off stencil.
  7. Take a Q-tip and some water to remove any mistakes.
  8. Let dry
  9. Take a very thin paint brush to clean up any strokes, if needed.
  10. Let dry
  11. Apply a top coat to prevent scratches to the paint.
  12. Let day
  13. Turn sign/door over to attach picture hangers. Two, on either side, if it's a heavy door, one if it's a light door.
Turning a cabinet door, new or used, into a sign. This DIY project is very inexpensive and takes little skill. It's a great way to use up old cabinet doors from a remodel or to use ones fround at a thrift or restore. These make great home decor items or gifts or even to resell them at a craft fair.  
Since we already owned the stencil and paint, this was a very inexpensive décor item. These can be great to keep, give as gifts, or sell. If you are good at free hand painting, you wouldn't even need a stencil. We hope you will give this project a try whether you use old doors you have or get all dressed up and head over to your local Thrift/ReStore. Thanks so much to Kim for letting us share this project with you.
