Upcycling a China Cabinet Door #1


Nothing goes to waste around here....

Remember the China Cabinet Makeover...

I have 4 leftover doors with beautiful bubbled glass...


Since I can not throw away anything 
 I thought I might be able to upcycle these ....

and I did... Here's the first one...


I painted with Annie Sloan Old White Chalk Paint....


I sanded the edges to show age...


added a little key decor...


And hung it up.... sideways!
*note: these pictures were all processed through iPiccy... 
a great alternative to Picnik!


Stay tuned for door #2!

  6. You never disappoint with your upcycles, Susan! I wonder if they are long enough to be a faux transom over a door ~ I'd love to try that myself for over the two French doors in our home.

  9. Susan, how did you hang these up? I have a bunch of in-frame stained glass windows I need to hang, but can't figure out how to put them up securely AND not drill straight into the frames from the front. Help!?
