Another fun up-cycled cabinet door

I am beyond honored, today I am being featured as a guest post-er on my blogger friend Connie's blog Measured by the Heart.  She is by far one of the most wonderful people I have met via the blog world thus far.  I have always known I love crafts but I had no idea how much I have loved getting to know all of YOU the crafty people who are so very inspired!

Please check out her blog and my guest post, it is my attempt pretend I actually know what I am doing here in blog land when in reality I am sooo not a blog pro.  But I am motivated by my love for crafting and inspiring other crafty people.

I did a little up-cycle project for the post that I want to share with all of you!

Here it is:  (as I posted this part on her blog)

I would love to share a little project with you today highlighting my love for up-cycled usable and meaningful crafts (sometimes even all at the same time)?!?!

I started with a steal of a deal cabinet door from a re-cycle home type thrift store.


1.  I sanded (kind of because I am a bit lazy), painted the cabinet door and a scrabble game piece holder at the same time, I distressed both big time and then picked out some of my favorite scrapbook paper (I have many so this isn't as easy as it sounds).

2.  Since the cabinet door in-set was a strange shape I trimmed my scrapbook paper and then sanded the edges to make sure everything was sized just right and distressed looking.

3.  Ahhh and then just add mod podge to seal her on

4.  This is where I came to my dilemma point---my original plan was to embrace a menu type look of the board while using a scrabble holder to hold the menu/recipe card....... butttt then I had some other ideas:

Display for special pictures and sayings, recipe card holder, quote pick!

So nice! I love this. Will you help me find cabinet doors! When you leave for home you'll have to keep a look out for me. If we cover two states, maybe I can find the amazing deal you did on your bundle.
