Cabinet Door Art Using Vinyl Cut Outs

cabinetDoorArt3So I found these cabinet doors for a couple of dollars each at my local Habitat for Humanity Restore a couple of months back. I wasn’t sure what I would do with them, but I knew something would happen if I brought them home. I have run across several projects using cupboard doors, and have made a chalkboard from one in the past (here).

After some black spray paint all over, I painted the inner rectangle with a few coats of folk art antique white acrylic paint. Once that was dry, I placed the black vinyl cutouts over the antique white. I smoothed out the air bubbles with a brayer.
This project evolved as I went. I didn’t have anything in mind when I started. I just wanted it to fit into my bedroom decor. After I put the vinyl on, I decided to add ribbon, so I drilled 2 holes in the top. I put one end of the ribbon into each hole from back to front of the door, tied a knot in the front, and pulled the slack back and up. The ribbons aren’t weight bearing. I hung the finshed pieces from nails using the lip on the back of the cabinets.
