Transforming Cabinet Doors

Simply Living


Good morning all…yes, it is still snowing but we won’t go there today.  I had to move all my seedlings and some plants from the greenhouse into the house.  With the electricity being so iffy I did not want all my work to freeze.  Plus with the greenhouse now buried in snow it is dark and gloomy inside it. The grow lights would be sufficient for some of the plants but not warm enough with no sunshine to heat things up. We are supposed to get more storms this week so I gave up on starting seeds out there. Now the seed trays are tucked warmly up on racks in the spare bedroom with grow lights to give them the sunlight they crave.
Today I am going to share some cabinet doors I transformed.  We have a friend who is a cabinet builder and when he has a faux pas with a door then it gets passed on to me instead of going to the dump.  I transform the trash to a treasure…

I have done a couple Rose Cottage signs with the doors, they seem a popular item..

The last one is still available, just click on the sign photo or my website button for more information about it.


Enjoy your day…as you can see they have NOT hauled me off to the Funny Farm yet.  I shall keep myself occupied painting signs today, I will put on a movie, set in a tropical area, as I paint and ignore the weather.

  4. Can you believe this frickin' weather?!? We had snow Friday, and we're just below 2000 ft. Enough, already!

    Love the signs! And the doors . . . SCORE! Hey - would you ever consider doing a rose tutorial? I'd love to learn how you do it. Maybe even a guest post!?!!!

  6. oh these are so pretty..what gift you have. These are cabbage roses? I have tried and tried and cannot get that technique down. Your painting is inspiring to me as this is something I would like to pursue....is the Donna Dewberry method? Or have you just done it your own way...they are lovely....thank you for your inspiration.

  10. Hi Pamela...

    Ohhh...what a talented lady you are, my friend! I just love each and every painting that you did on the cabinet doors...GORGEOUS! I think my favorite is the "Marche de Fleur" painting that you did...sooo very pretty! Thank you for sharing your pretties with us today!

    Warmest spring wishes,

  11. Your paintings are so pretty, but the first 3 with the big cabinet doors are my favorite. My family used to have 2 greenhouses when I was growing up. I remember all too well the hassles of the grow lights....we grew our plants in the dinding room, much to my mother's dismay, until it was warm enough for the greenhouse.

  13. I wish I could paint like that! I so envy your talent. I know it's a practiced thing but I just don't have the time or space. I need another hobby like I need...
    At least there are people like you I can ooh and aah over. Thanks!
