Repurposed Cabinet Door

Make a shabby french bread maker kitchen sign out of an old cabinet door

Here is how I saved/transformed this cabinet.
I started off by cleaning the cabinet by simply wiping it with a wet rag. Next, I started painting it in French Linen chalk paint by Annie Sloan.

I didn't bother sanding at all. I then painted it in Old White from Annie Sloan (2 coats). Once dry, I distressed the edges a bit by sanding with a 150 grit sandpaper. I then smoothed the entire cabinet with a light sanding with 220 sandpaper. It was now ready for the transfer.

I used citra solv for the image transfer. Visit my blog for step by step instructions and more photos and ideas for cabinet door makeover!

    I love this transformation of a cast off cabinet door! Where do you buy your citra solv? I haven't been able to find it locally.

      I ordered it from Amazon because it's nowhere to be found here either unfortunately!
