Today, I’m going to share some more of the last minute repurposed cabinet door projects that I took to Glendale 2015, an easy welcome sign.

Paint Sprayer for Easy Welcome Sign
Painting cabinet doors and any other projects are so easy with my Homeright Finish Max and my favorite DIY chalky paint primer. After mixing some plaster of paris with my favorite paint, I sprayed a couple of cabinet doors, then still had some paint in the cup, and grabbed a couple of more.
Collection of Cabinet Doors
Yep, I have many cabinet doors of all shapes and sizes to choose from.
The one on the right is already done, and I’m about to do the one on the left.
Dry Brush Technique | Chip Brush
My favorite color seems to be red these days. One of the black primered doors got a dose of dry brushed Reclaim paint.
This is how the black cabinet door looks after applying a light (dry) coat of red paint with a cheap chip brush.
The red paint dries much deeper than it appears it will. You can see that this is a new chip brush and it was shedding a little. Many people use these and throw them away. I keep them forever. The more I use them, the less they shed. Wanna know why I love these brushes so much? They are incredibly easy to clean and they don’t waste a lot of paint (down the drain, so to speak).
Contact Paper Stencil
After the paint dried, I sanded it with some brown paper, then cut out a WELCOME stencil with my Silhouette Portrait and some contact paper. You can see how I apply the contact paper for stenciling in my post Repurposed Pallet Coffee Cup Rack.
After applying the contact paper stencil, I weeded the letters and readied it for paint. I use Martha Stewart Foam Pouncers for all of my stenciling.
Hang With D Rings
I used my favorite d-rings on the back so the sign can be hung.
Red Glazed Welcome Sign
Or it can be leaned against a wall in the entryway or on the porch. I love, love, love this color! I thought it would fly out of the booth at Glendale, but it took several hours for just the right person to fall in love with it.
You will love this Welcome Sign at McCall Manor from a new board, made to look old.
Easy Black Welcome Sign
I left one of the cabinet doors black, and added WELCOME in white vinyl. Sad, but this is one of the few items that actually came home with me from Glendale this year.
