'Tis the season
This door came off of a little cabinet I picked up at a garage sale for next to nothing at least a year ago. I seem to remember that it was the only part I was able to salvage.
The rulers were easy to cut with this coping saw, but I had to use a hacksaw for the metal ruler.
I painted the door with Duck Egg chalk paint and used a dark stain over the top. The dark stain makes it look greener, which was the look I wanted. A light pencil mark in the center made it easier to keep the rulers centered.
I left the ends alone on the longer pieces and rounded off the edges with sandpaper on the cut ends.
Of course I had to top it off with a vintage rhinestone button. It looks much more sparkly in person.
A little greenery, tiny vintage ornaments and a rhinestone brooch add a little sparkle to the knob.
