Vintage Cabinet Door Towel Basket

This cute project started with an old cabinet door 
and a basket.

I cut the basket in half using a wire cutter, then drilled holes in the cabinet door where the basket's frame wire would fit.

I dripped Krazy Glue into the holes and inserted the basket...

I painted the cabinet door and the basket Lamp White with Fusion Mineral Paint then heavily distressed the cabinet door. 

Fusion Mineral Paint sticks to the metal and the cabinet door with no priming, stripping, or sanding. 

The best part to me is that there is no waxing or topcoat needed! 

Fusion Mineral Paint can be purchased at Backstreet Antiques in Huntington, NY.

I am using the Milk and Cream stencil created and sold by Angie at Knick of Time.

Angie has beautiful vintage and farmhouse stencils at reasonable prices. They are great quality stencils and I love the Milk and Cream stencil for this project.

I used spray adhesive to hold down the stencil then black craft paint to lightly stencil in the lettering. A light coat of the black paint is all you need... less is more in stenciling.

I love this project for kitchen towels but it can also be used to hold towels in the bathroom.
