Re-Purposed Cabinet Door Christmas Sign with Target Jingle Bells

December 02, 2018

 I still have quite a few cabinet display doors that I purchased last spring for $3-$5 each at my local Menard's.

I am thinking of a Christmas project today!

I base coated this door with Rust-Oleum Chalked Paint in Chiffon Cream.  I sometimes mix Chiffon Cream with Rust-Oleum Chalked Paint in Linen White, as one is a little too creamy and one is a little too white, but today I base coated in the Chiffon Cream and top coated in Linen White.  

When I distress with 220 grit sandpaper, both whites will be somewhat visible, along with the cabinet door stain color.

I was going to stencil some pillow covers for a church craft sale, and I decided to give this one a try.

Since the cabinet door had a raised center panel, I had to extend the bell's string to have it reach to the flatter outer frame.

I used Fusion Mineral Paint in Coal Black to stencil the lettering and string, and DecoArt Chalky Finish Paint in Rouge for the bell.

After I finished distressing with 220 grit sandpaper, I sealed the cabinet door sign with two coats of Varathane Water-Based Polyurethane in Satin Finish.

I added a sawtooth hanger to the back. 

I decided my sign needed something, but not the greenery from the stencil.

I remembered I had purchased a 4 pack of Target Wondershop red jingle bells last month.  

The strings were jute colored so I painted them with Ceramcoat black craft paint.

I hung three of the red jingle bells on 7/8" nickel cup hooks.
