...you'll feel better"! Nope, it's not a typo...I meant just that type of "wine" and if I am being completely honest...I don't even drink it! Okay, I heard that collective gasp! I have just never acquired a taste for it, but for those that do, you just might enjoy my latest project!
We are going to call these "Polly's Trays". Why, you ask? Okay, I'll tell you! These are the cabinet doors that came out of the house that Kelli recently purchased. Remember the 1970's house that still had the 1970's kitchen? For whatever reason, it was the one project that Polly, the previous homeowner (for 33 years!) never got around to.
Honestly, I suggested that Kelli paint them to start out till she was really ready to remodel, but she wasn't having it...out they came! Knowing I could find some kind of cute project to use them for, I confiscated a few...okay, more than a few!
Using the same transfer technique that I used on my cute headboard...I made a couple of these:
First, I gave the doors a good scrubbing with TSP and the hose. Next I filled all the previous hardware holes, sanded and then painted them with leftover ASCP that I had in my stash. I painted the original hardware with Rustoleum Oil Rubbed Bronze, that I also already had on hand (love this stuff). I purchased another image from Graphique (love this shop too), but changed out the sentiment for one that printed up myself. "Burnished" them on the door and gave them a quick spray of clear matte acrylic to set the image. Did a little "shabby" sanding, drilled new holes for the handles and VOILA...Polly's Trays were born!
Here is a better picture of the graphic:

This was a fun, easy project! If you aren't lucky enough to have some old cabinet doors lying around your house, try your local "Restore", they are a great source!
Be sure to check back...I used these doors another way too!
Don't forget the GREAT sale Melissa is having at her ETSY shop...all the details are here!
