Cabinet Door Up cycle

I have been rummaging around Pinterest and loving the hand painted signs and up cycled items .  Especially the Christmas Themed ones.  A old sideboard was offered to us at the unbeatable price of Free and we did not turn it down.  The doors were actually very pretty and well..that was all that had pretty potential..I am not afraid to tackle tough jobs like (Did I say thank you and Sweet Salvage) however this one I passed on the complete "redo"

I took the hardware off the doors and filled in the holes with wood putty...

Let them dry completely then sanded them smooth with a sanding sponge.

I put one coat of ASCP Emperors Silk and lightly sanded to distress...
Cut Letters with the Cricut and stenciled them in with Southern Honey Otis Grey.

 Highlighted with Black and white craft paint 
sanded again then waxed with ASCP clear wax.
Added a wire hanger and a small thin piece of wood across the backs of the puttied holes. ( the prevent them from falling out)
Added some decorative salvaged hardware to blend those puttied holes a little better....

And Wallah......

A great rustic Holiday sign that cost..well pennies! Right on the mark for my budget!
I do hope that you have some wonderful holiday plans in the works and if you plan on taking it easy, I hope for happiness and health for you this holiday season, From My Family To Yours!
