Simplify Sign from Old Drawer





Salvage a drawer front to a Simplify Sign!

This was a fake drawer, at the top, right under the kitchen sink. You know, the long one that doesn't really open. When we were redoing our kitchen, I saved all the wood I could for future projects and this is one of the easy ones.

I simply took the drawer front and put on one coat of flat, black paint from the Walmart paint section. The kind you have to paint on with a brush.

Next, after drying, I took a large "Simplify" sign and stenciled it on using some yellow stencil paint from the Heritage Brand collection. I love that stencil paint, but it is a little greasy based and needs time to dry. Probably about 24 hours.

And after letting it sit to dry, I also took some of the yellow stencil paint and touched around all of the edges to make a little more "worn" looking effect.

And here it is all finished. All I need to add is a sawtooth hanger on the back.




I am pricing this cute SIMPLIFY sign in my Booth #555 (Like me on Facebook) at the Morehead Peddlers Mall for $9.99.

And remember, you can also stay up to date on items I make for my craft Booth #555 by keeping up with me on Facebook also!

See you round' and Happy Crafting!

PRIMITIVE CHECKERBOARD from old Cabinet Door

 PRIMITIVE CHECKERBOARD

This is a solid oak cabinet door that I made into a checkerboard with a saw tooth hanger on the back. 

I painted it in a flat Black and used Delta Stencil paints for the checkerboard.


I chose the Heritage color themes of the ones they sell. And the yellow color is called EGGNOG YELLOW. 
 I use a makeup sponge to stencil with all of these paints. I don't like the stencil brushes and such.

They just look so prim.

 O' how I love these two colors together. They are my absolute favorite. And that's why I do so many items in these colors. I also like red and black for the old time feel as well.

After stenciling on the checkerboard that I bought from ebay, I used a makeup sponge and touched up the edges of the board also. Just to give it a more worn look.



Price: $9.99 SOLD in my Peddlers Mall Booth.
Thank You.

For other things smaller, I can offer them to you online in my ebay shop here.

Happy Crafting ya'll,
