September 28, 2009


By now you all know just how much I LOVE JUNK!!!!  Today I am featuring a junk project I did using an old cupboard door that was destined for the land fill.

I love french decorating and use a lot of it in my own home, so I decided that this cupboard door would be perfect with some added french destinations to it.  I cut the letters out of vinyl using my wishblade machine and rubbed them on.

Had to save the original hinges and latch as they add to the beauty of the piece.

This is a before picture of the cupboard door. All I did to prepare it for this project was to remove the one hinged piece at the top, wash it and give it a light sanding.

Well, that's it my friends...........another easy junkdreams project!!!
BTW....I hope this posts makes sense as I have just finished two very busy
nightshifts at the hospital and am feeling exhausted.
Hope you are all well.
Happy day and have fun junking!!!

Sandi said...

What a neat idea! I have stenciled on a old door before, but not this. But then I don't have a wishblade either. lol
Thanks for sharing!

Sandi said...

P.S. I meant to add...and I have no idea what a wishblade is either.
But I DO now because I googled it. I WANT ONE TOO!! :)
