Kitchen cabinet door hack

I have something with dumpsters, I know… Every time I have a look I find something to bring home with me.

On this occasion, I found one kitchen cabinet and two kitchen cabinet doors. The cabinet is now a play kitchen for the girls, but I left the doors waiting for some inspiration because it was clear it needed a hack


And that day arrived, do you know that moment when a bulb lights in your head? That is. I decided to transform one door into a wall hanger with a cute image I designed.

I have to apologize because sometimes I just forget taking pictures of the process, but it is so easy I will explain.

I painted it with DIY chalk paint so no sanding was required, two layers was enough. One layer is enough in the central part, just a little paint so the glue stays in place. While drying, I printed the image and cut to the size I needed.

Once the paint was fully dried, I mixed in a bowl some white glue with water (you have to get a mix which is not thick and not watery) and applied with a brush where the image would be. Then I placed the print there and press with a plastic bag to remove any air bubbles and avoid damaging the image.

Then I distressed the borders, wax it all and I gave to coats of varnish on the print. I chose some pretty hangers and done!

    I wish I had a mind that worked like yours! This is an amazing use for something that I would have probably thrown away. And it turned out so cute! You could also use it as a little girls headband or jewelry hanger. Love it!!!

      Thank you Nikki! My girls have a bigger one for all their headbands and hair pins which hardly use, by the way…

    Love what you did with the cabinet door. It turned out so pretty! I am always forgetting to take some of my photos. I get to writing my post, and adding the photos for the steps and oops I forgot that one. I get so aggravated with myself.
