Look what I made...and no, I am not talking about making the bed!  Although, that is an accomplishment in and of itself on some days!
This is a set of 3 recycled cabinet doors.  I loved the style and molding and thought they just need a little love!
I added a metal candle sconce to give it some more detail.
I just glued this medallion onto the center, painted it blue and added an antique glaze.

As you can see from some of my other posts, I love working with recycled cabinet door fronts.  Here is another way to repurpose them into unique wall art.  I loved the trim on these but man, they were UGLY when I found them!  They were a very dated orange color - kinda looked like tomato soup. Yuck!  Nothing like a little elbow grease and some paint.  I added some embellishments for an extra little bling-a-ling.  You can read more on my blog at www.downhomediy.blogspot.com.
