I’m sure you’re busy getting ready for Christmas. I just wanted to pop in with a quick and easy cabinet door coat rack chalkboard project.
All you need is an old cabinet door, knobs, scrap plywood and some paint.
Over the Summer my cousin gave me an old built-in hutch. This is one of the doors that had the glass broken out of it.
You may remember I used two of the doors for my IKEA hack.
I gave it a base coat of my DIY chalk paint in black. Making my own chalk paint with plaster of paris works great as a primer or base coat. It sticks really easily to the cabinet door.
Then I did a dry brush technique with some oops red. To do the dry brush technique, I use a cheap chip brush, and barely load paint on the tips of the bristles. I lightly brush on the red paint over the black, allowing the black to show through.
I love the way this technique looks on the black base coat. I used the original knob, and the two knobs left over from the IKEA hack project to use for hooks/hangers. I just drilled holes and used the original screws as well. Easy! You can see the chalkboard piece of plywood to the right.
Easy Cabinet Door Coat Rack
I love the color combination of the deep red, black and white.
It’s such a versatile piece, great for the bathroom…..
…or for some scarves.
How would YOU use it?
