It's that time of year again...
upcycle and repurpose
as much as you can
while the weather is nice.

I found a large cabinet door
stuffed towards that back of my
every growing (shhh...don't tell) cabinet
door stash.

It originally was very dark
which worked out nicely because
 it was just as I had

I sanded it down. But not too much. Just
enough to get the shine and crud off of it.
Then I slapped on some Benjamin Moore
Camo paint. Once it dried,
I gave it a quick sanding.
How to get that paint color to look green
is beyond me. It dried on the paint stick
a super nice green but not so much on my
cabinet door. It was more of a light celery color.
I have wondered more than once if it was
mixed wrong but it dried green on the stick
so now I am perplexed.

So, I messed around with a few other colors.
 I had to!
I added grey and blue on the
outer edge. And sanded it
again once it was dry.

I used a previously cut
vinyl design
for the center.

And here's the beauty of it all:

I love how the paint gives off an almost whimsical,
floating, blowing, whispy appeal.
Sort of looks like the faith is blowing
to where ever it is needed.

I really like how it turned out. I took it to my space
at Marketplace 3301 yesterday.
Maybe it will make it's way into
someone's home and be loved!

Thanks for stopping by!
