I know, I know! People use cabinet doors all the time to make signs, except me, until now! LOL
This door was a steal at just a buck! I had to clean it off and sand it down a little bit, but that was no big deal.
To create my harlequin pattern I used an 8.5x11 piece of cardstock. Folded it in half and cut from the fold down in the shape of a triangle. When the paper was unfolded it created my diamond shape.
Pretty basic stuff! I wanted my harlequin pattern to be very subtle so I wasn't too precise on painting the pattern since I was going to distress it anyway.
Distressed the pattern, painted on my design, stained the edge and gave the entire door a couple coats of sealer and this is what I ended up with.
Sorry its a little blurry, I really need a new camera! Using this cabinet door had a little bonus... The door already had two holes in the back, perfect for hanging so I didn't need to add hardware! LOL
Perfect for hanging on the porch wouldn't you say?
If you aren't already then I'd love for you to follow along...
