Cabinet Door Plaque

I went to the Habitat re-store a few months back and picked up all sorts of goodies. I bought these really nice cabinet/drawer fronts for only $1 a piece. They are the long, narrow rectangular ones. The ones I purchased are normally used for the false drawer/cabinet that are installed under a kitchen sink.


Anyhoo, I used the green one above to make this plaque. I am thrilled with how it turned out, and it honestly took me about 30 minutes start to finish. Curious to know how I did it? Let me share with you my secrets!


First off, all the lettering and trim is from my scrapbooking stash. They are all rub-ons! Yep, how easy is that?!? I love these things, they are wonderful for all sorts of other applications besides scrapbooking.


Right now my favorite bible verse that I've memorized and have repeated thousands several times a day is Romans 12:12. "Be joyful in hope, patient in affliction, faithful in prayer". It's a good one!

I just left the drawer front as is. You can see it's kinda dinged/scratched up and that is fine by me. I decided to keep the sign simple, so that the words are what you focus on.


I hope you like my fast and frugal idea for a easy project. Please click on "Linky Parties I Love" on the right to see where I'll be linking up my idea. Thanks for stopping by!

  2. What a great idea. I thought the trim was real and not a rub on....that's the way to go, so easy. Love the paint color too. I'm going to be keeping my eyes open for some of the long drawer fronts...don't see them too often:)

  3. I do like it. I like the simplicity of it. You did a great job, and I don't think I would have pegged it for the front of a cabinet.

  8. Wow, I would never have known how it started out if you hadn't told me. Great idea to use the cabinet front, it has such interesting detail already carved into it. You're right the quote is an excellent one and you did a lovely job focusing on it's meaning.

  14. What a great idea! I saw one yesterday in a shop I was in that I would love to re-create as well. They used an old paneled window and put a burlap bulletin board in 2 spaces and a chalk board in the center space. People are so darn creative! Great job, Marcia
