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 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!

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.
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.
For other things smaller, I can offer them to you online in my ebay shop here.
Happy Crafting ya'll,
