Upcycling a China Cabinet Door

Absolutely nothing goes to waste around here.

Remember the China Cabinet Makeover?

I have 4 leftover doors with beautiful bubbled glass.

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

Here's the first one...

I painted with Annie Sloan Old White Chalk Paint.

I sanded the edges to show age.

and added a little key decor.

I hung it up sideways!

Now go over and check out Window #2

  5. Susan that turned out awesome!! I am in love with the mirror too in your previous post! What great finds!

  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.

  7. Awesome new look! and thanks for the heads up on the picnik alternative!


  8. What a fantastic idea! Looks great.

  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!?

    1. They are hung up with 2 sawtoothed picture hangers! :)

  10. Superb idea---looks fantastic. Being frugal and ingenious at the same time is what it's all about.

  11. You have an ailment Susan. It's called Post Wedding Decorating Success (PWSS).
