Hi sweet friends! If you read my previous post you might remember how I replaced the computer desk with a repurposed door. This frame was the cabinet door that came from that desk.
Here are the pieces I salvaged.
I gave the door a quick sanding.
I decided to use Americana Decor Chalk paint. It is similar in color to the map. I used a foam paint brush and gave it two coats. After the paint dried I distressed the finish with sand paper.
Then I cut one of the maps from this Chart Kit. I didn't want to cut into these beautiful maps, but that was the only solution to make it fit inside the cabinet door frame.
After carefully measuring to size, I cut the map and adhered it to the middle of the door inside the panel.
I used this product for the finishing touch!
I glued the grass cording around the map inside the panel. I also used the cording to hang the frame, by threading it through the holes and tying a knot. I love the new frame and how it looks in this refreshing chalky finish paint. The little racing boats came from a trophy that I repurposed.
