#Re-Purpose: DIY Holiday Decorations

Guest blog by: Heidi and Brent Kruse

With the holidays quickly approaching, some simple holiday decorations made out of the cabinet door frames, buttons and fabric seemed like a fun project to tackle.

We prefer to work with what we’ve got, so we usually round up as many things as we can from our stash of reclaimed materials that we have lying around. This meant we only had to purchase buttons and some picture-hanging hardware for this project.

To begin, we sanded and painted these unfinished cabinet door frames with two coats of antique white paint followed by a coat of brown glaze, which gives them an aged look.

Since we weren’t working with a cabinet door that had a panel in it, we had to make our own. Luckily, we had some scraps of drywall lying around that worked perfectly!
