Farmhouse Style Kitchen Cabinet Door Decor

March 28, 2018
Here are three display cabinet doors that will be in this farmhouse style project.

Our local Menard's was selling these display cabinet doors for $5 each.  I purchased several.

I am no where near a ReStore or Habitat store, so $5 sounded good to me!

First I painted the three cabinet doors with two coats of Chalked Paint in Aged Gray 

I really like the "Chalked" brand as a cheaper substitute for Annie Sloan Chalk Paint.

After the paint dried I pulled out my FolkArt Die Cut Paper Stencils Richmond Alphabet (26 Pack).

I have several of these inexpensive FolkArt paper stencil packs.  Since the stencils are paper they can tear very easily in the thinner areas, so be careful.  You also have to press out the stencils on perforated lines before using.

This one has "Richmond" Font upper and lower case letters
Since my three cabinet doors were not exactly the same, I measured from the cabinet bottom and not from the bottom of the panel to center my stencils.  The bottom of the letters are 4 1/4" from the bottom and 1" in from each side of the center panel.

I stenciled the letters with Ceramcoat Acrylic Paint in White.

Here are the cabinet doors so far!

I decided to stencil on a second coat of white so the paint wasn't quite so transparent.

At this point, I pulled out my FolkArt Home Decor Layering Wood Block.  I haven't used it for a while but since sandpaper distressing would expose three different stains, I chose to faux distress with the layering block and Ceramcoat Acrylic Paint in Walnut.

More information about the layering block technique can be found HERE.

I sealed my doors with Varathane Water Based Polyurethane in Matte Finish.

I purchased the door pulls,

 and double hook from Hobby Lobby.

Sawtooth hangers were added to back for hanging.

The doors can be hung both horizontally and vertically.

You could also space them out more to cover more wall space.

A grain sack stripe dish towel could hang on the hooks or on the door handles too.

This was an easy project and fairly inexpensive.  I paid $15 for the doors, $5.98 for the handles and $1.50 for the hooks during Hobby Lobby's 1/2 price sale on hooks, knobs and door pulls.

Those of you that can grab those $1 salvaged cabinet doors can really save money on this project.
