Old Cabinet Door to Christmas Sign

christmas-sign-2.jpg

In order to stock her booth for Christmas time, Karin from Art Is Beauty has been on a sign-making mission. She has a shed full of old cabinet doors that are the perfect canvases for her creations and was inspired by a Pottery Barn pillow to turn a square door into a piece of Christmas art. Karin liked how the pillow resembles chalkboard art and used chalkboard paint to achieve a similar effect. I love how the inset panel of the door makes the sign look framed. What a great repurpose!

Bethany from Sawdust and Embryos loves geography, so when she came across a unique United States coffee table, she knew it was the perfect opportunity to put her mad scroll saw skills to work! Bethany opted to make a plaque instead of a table since the Florida peninsula seemed susceptible to busting off easily with twin toddlers running free. Here’s from Bethany: “I love that it has an amazing wood grain, a pop of color for personality, and a heart marking the spot of where we live in Iowa. One of my FAVE projects!”

Nancy from Owen’s Olivia put her own creative spin on an illuminated arrow sign she saw from RH Baby & Child by making a “hello” sign out of Christmas lights. The beauty of Nancy’s DIY approach (aside from saving some serious dough) is that your sign can say whatever you like. Who wouldn’t want to see his or her name up in lights {wink}?

Wooden Chalkboard Sign

A piece of scrap plywood can become a birthday sign that doubles as wall décor following this tutorial from Jaime at That’s My Letter.  The chalkboard finish makes this sign very versatile. Hang it for a party like Jaime did and then later add it a bedroom or playroom as wall décor. No doubt kids would love to change the message for tea parties, restaurant, and other pretend play.
