Repurpose a cabinet door into a frame

in , by Julie Nichols, July 28, 2016

 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 paintbrush and gave it two coats.  After the paint dried I distressed the finish with sandpaper.

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.
