Jewelry Holder/ door repurpose.............

It is Frugal Friday over at the Shabby Nest, and this is my thrifty contribution.....................


I have this funny little old cabinet that holds shoes, but it has cute doors. So when one of the doors fell off I couldn't bring myself to throw it away.
What does one do with a door??


First I sanded it down so that I could paint it.


Then I white washed it. It took two coats of regular old bottled acrylic from the craft store. Then I sanded it down again so that it would look distressed.



Then I took a stamp and stamped it with brown oxide paint.



I did not try to make it perfect at all.
Perfect is overrated..........................................................
plus I planned to sand and fade the stamped sections anyway.




I bought a 9 pack of bronze 1-1/4" cup hooks from Target.



I screwed them into some of the stamped spots. I may go back and add more later.

I tied a brown ribbon on the knob................................................
just for fun.
I used a staple gun to fasten two pieces of brown ribbon to the back top to hang it from. Then I hung it in a sooo not glamorous wall in my closet. (A little anti-climactic, right?) But,...I know that it is there and it looks cute.



I love a good re purpose!! Now,...What ever will I do with the other door?

I think you should publish a book on "How to do DIY with style".;)
It is gorgeous Holly, I am so in awe!
Have a great Friday,

Wonderful! I'm sure it makes that closet wall look like a million bucks.

Great idea! I've been needing a jewelry holder, this is inspiration I need to make my own! I loves it!

Zuzu said...

Wow - very creative! I love fleur de lis, and I've always thought jewelry should be thought of as wearable art - both for us and our homes!

Enjoy your day,
Zuzu

I can't even tell you how much I love this! Now, where to find a door...
Thanks for the idea!

Sally said...

TOTALLY LOVE IT!!! Can you make me one?

Audra said...

What a lovely idea. Reusing the doors to make a jewelry holder! Simply stunning!

M.L. @ The House of Whimsy said...

How inspired, Holly!!! I saved the image to show to my daughters. I LOVE the way it turned out!
I also enjoyed strolling through your Fall decor' pics around the house. All your touches are wonderful!!
And I'm sorry for not getting back to you sooner on the pendant. I'm in the middle of a big special order of pumpkins. I'd say check back the middle of next week to see if I got my act together enough to put more in the Shop or not. But no pressure whatsoever. I don't mind if they just sit there, because I'll put them back in again next year.
Take care,
M.L.

I love how great that looks. It fun to use jewelry as decoration when you're not using it. Thanks for sharing.

Angie said...

Love this and am totally going to try to make one too! I think I have an old cabinet door in my closet somewhere. I have all my necklaces on one hook so I definitely need more places to hang them. Thanks for the idea!
