Hello friends! This is part 3 of my repurposed cabinet door projects. If you haven't already, check out part 1 (a home decor gift for my mom) and part 2 (a gift for my sports loving grandma)! Today I'm sharing the gift I made for my Dad. I got the idea to use washers from this awesome post at I'll Get You My Pretties. My Dad is a "manly man" who can fix anything, build anything, etc. so using washers was perfect for him. While I was home, he even supervised my first cut with my new jigsaw :) yay me!
In this post I don't go into much detail about where I bought everything or what the cabinet door looked like before, so if you're interested, refer to part 1.
How I Did It:
1. First, I taped off the middle portion of the cabinet door with painter's tape. I decided to use the original white paint color for the middle part to save money. After taping, I painted the outside "frame" black. I used the same black paint that I used for my couch redo and my baby grand project. I also painted the clothes pins black.
2. With a package of washers from the hardware store, I spelled out "Dad." Then, I hot glued them to the cabinet. You will want to make sure you measure and center the word "Dad," of course.
3. After that, I hot glued the clothes pins to the cabinet door. Like I mentioned in the previous posts, my first concern was to cover up the hole where the knob used to go, and then I measured from there.
And you're done! I love the simplicity of these projects! My Dad hung this in his office-- it's the perfect place to put reminders, photos, or business cards.
What do you guys think?!
