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
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
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!
