Cabinet Door- Wall Coat Rack

Yep...another cabinet door. Another cabinet door redefined. Hey~> for $2 you can get pretty darn creative with these little jewels.
(almost missed..note the tad bit of primer already on there?)

I sanded it down with fine grit sand paper and cleaned the dust off. Then primed.

All primed!

And because I was painting at night, late at night...I couldn't get a good pic of the colors I used. For the first coat, I used Kilz Casual Colors Blue Ox. I gave it one coat of the blue and let dry. Then I added a coat of Ace Hardware's Treehouse. I was hoping for a good color combo. Kinda of a Spring vibe yet relaxing and homey. "Homey" love that! The next morning, I sanded it and used Walnut Distress Ink. 

Then I used the power drill...by MYSELF! I know it! I have evolved!! The other day my Mr. showed me how to pre-drill holes for adding knobbies. (lol, knobbies...funny word)
It was kind of trial and error but I refused to give up. NOW, I didn't say pre-drilling holes was rocket scientry-I said trial and error. =) I may or may not have stripped the first bolt completely. Ugh...eee gads! Oh well. Hide the evidence and move on.

With ReStore drawer pulls turned coat knobbies:

The color turned out quite nicely. If I must say so myself. And the knobbies are straight! The reflection appears otherwise. But they are eyeball straight by golly! Tilt your head if you don't believe me. =)
Those lovely brass knobbies will be redefined as soon as the weather gets warm enough to spray paint. And then, it will be oh so right on.

BUT, and there is always a BUT, it just needed a little bit more. So I sat down and created a warm vinyl saying to embellish it with. I used my Silhouette to cut the vinyl, applied application tape to the lettering and backing paper for the transfer process and then transferred the vinyl to my wall mount coat rack.
(hello lovely run on sentence)


Kind of hard to read but it says: MAY YOUR JOURNEY always lead you home
Sorry about the all CAPS, but that is how it reads. I'm not yelling at you.=)

**(anyone know how the hell to turn the flash off on my Canon Rebel??...detest it)**

There ya have it! A cabinet door redefined!

Thank you for stopping by! Follow me and join in on the F~U~N.

Have a great day!

  1. Great job! That's beautiful. There should be a setting that is non-flash, or if not, I just hold the flash down. :) Thanks for linking up!

  2. @Jaime~ Thanks! I can't find a way to turn it off. Guess that means I better read the book. =) I never thought of holding the flash down. Thanks for the tip!

  3. that is the perfect phrase for this coat rack. it turned out great.

  4. This is REALLY cute! That flash is the devil! Yes, the book will probably help, but really, who has time???!!!!


  5. @Tammy~I had a few I was considering. But, I finally decided that this saying really made a statement. Once I designed it, I knew it was just right.

  6. @Kim~ thank you for stopping by! Flash does =devil. I really should take it upon myself to learn how to run that darn camera since it is a pretty darn "good" camera. *sigh* I will stop by and check out your blog. ;)

  7. That looks great. Love the added quote- I think it needed a little something there. Thanks for linking this up as well!

  8. Wow, that's one of my favorite paint jobs ever! I love that. I'm going to be searching for cabinet doors now. :)

  9. @Gillian~Thank you! It was just sort of a trial and error project with the paint colors. Cabinet doors have so many possibilities. Check my other posts for more ideas! Thank you for stopping by and commenting, I appreciate it!

  10. I love this project! Where do you get the cabinet doors? Also, what font is that you used? The project is beautiful, the colors are perfect! I will have to make one of these soon!

  11. @Robin~ Thank you! I get my cabinet doors from our local Habitat for Humanity ReStore. Very reasonably priced. The font I used is Scriptina. Thanks for stopping by!! ;)

  12. That looks completely beautiful, I want one :)
    and we have a Canon Rebel too but unfortunately I don't know how to turn the flash off either... so I feel your pain.

    stopping by from Sumo's Sweet Stuff

  13. so glad i found your blog.. beautiful sign.. the color is perfect.

  14. Wow! That is downright Awesome! I'll ask dear daughter if she knows how to turn the flash off :-)

  15. Do you sell the lettering also? Would love to buy 2 Sets if you do!, thanks...

  16. Hi Roxy~
    Yes! I do sell vinyl as well. I am on FB at Up Words & On Words and on etsy at www.upwordsandonwords.etsy.com

    Thanks so much for stopping by Redefining C!

    Have a great day!

  17. Where did you find your knobbies? Love them! I have cabinet doors and am going to make a few of these! Thanks for the cute idea!!

    1. Hi Kaylee~
      I got the knobs at our local ReStore. ;) Hope that helps. You can knobs at Walmart, Target, Lowe's or Home Depot as well. They are just inexpensive at ReStore and fun to dig through to find matching ones. ;)
