Time for the next installment of my cupboard door stash makeover. Yahoo!! If you have no clue what I’m talking about, head HERE to begin the fun. I was ready to give away that thrifted metal art, but then I had a light-bulb moment (don’t you just love those?). This pile below is about to get transformed into farmhouse wall decor.
The light-bulb moment I mentioned was that I realized I had two square cupboard doors in my stash that would work perfectly. My vision was to layer the metal art on top and create a textured look. I’ve created a video of the steps below for those of you that like to see the process in action.
First, I pulled out my remnant or paintable pressed tin wallpaper and cut pieces to fit in the center panel. A simple wallpaper adhesive makes for easy affixing. This stuff is awesome and we’ve used it on furniture, our family room and dining room ceiling, and for endless crafts.
Also, I needed to add a small mounting screw to the cupboard door front so the metal art could be attached.
Plus, I filled the holes for cabinet hardware with wood filler and sanded smooth.
Next, once the wallpaper has had a chance to cure, I pull out my small spray shelter and turn table. Since I wanted to create a layered effect, I begin by painting a espresso satin coat of paint to the doors and the metal art.
One coat is all that is needed. Then, it’s time for a fun layering adventure. Using my paint brush, I apply a whitewash using a dry brush technique to both the doors and metal art. Simple dip a bit on your brush, dab off excess, and work in the same brush pattern. The video demonstrates this best.
Last, I used a bit of sandpaper to distress, then added saw-tooth hardware< to the back for wall mounting.
Aren’t they fun? Funny, they even totally remind me of the antique ceiling tiles you can find in old buildings. You can see how I used embossed barn roof shingles to create a tin ceiling in our family room. (head HERE)
So, whatcha think? I hope you’ve enjoyed my farmhouse wall decor tutorial. I certainly had fun creating it for you. My goal is always to inspire you to see past the obvious and create something new.
