I recently found an entire kitchen of discarded cabinet doors! I made coat racks out two of the smaller doors.

Here is where I began. Standard raised panel kitchen door.

I added picture wire to hang the doors before I began the painting process. I find it is easier to put hanging mechanisms on projects before proceeding to the beautifying stage!

I painted one with two coats of CeCe Caldwell's Vintage White and one with only one coat of Vintage White. When the paint was dry, I distressed each of them to my liking.

In the corners, I added decorative knobs. I purchased the knobs and hooks at Hobby Lobby at 50% off. About once a month, all their pulls and hooks go half off!

    I get my glass knobs online from a site called paintitupandpassiton.ca. Prices are good, and the strong dollar saves you even more! You sure do amazing work!!!

    GREAT job, and so cute. LOVE the distressing - and the hooks are so cute. Everyone needs hooks in their house, especially with kids. Thanks to Jaimie who shared where she got her knobs at a good price! ( - :
