Repurposed Cabinet Door signs

Oh Joy!
It's December and I feel swamped.
Staying focused on the "joys" of the season can be a challenge 
at times with all the "stuff" that I want to get done in this month.
I made this sign a few months back in anticipation of what word 
I would need to remember the most this Christmas.
It is out of a re-purposed kitchen cabinet door from house #2.
 We took off all our cabinet doors and replaced them.
I have kept these door fronts for various projects and gifts over the years--
{does that make me a hoarder?}
they make great chalkboards and signs.
I like to freehand my signs and then distress them.
Painted white and roughed up with sandpaper.
Adds a nice vintage touch and the message makes me stop and smile.
Getting ready slowly for the holidays...

  1. so sweet, aimee! we are working on changing up our kitchen and i have a few unused doors now--great inspiration!

  2. I have old cabinet doors stuff under beds, lol, waiting for the right project and time! I love what you've done with yours. I also tend to put joy on everything during Christmas, and it occurred to me this morning that I haven't been particularly joyful. I guess we both need that reminder! :-)

  3. What a lovely idea for the Holidays. And no, you're not a hoarder, lol, you're a visionary collector. :) That's what a tell my husband when he complains that the basement is getting packed out.


Thank you for making my day and leaving a comment! :o)
