Cafe De Paris Cabinet Door

I found this cabinet door with a pretty arch top and glass insert at my local Restore.  It got a coat of creamy white paint and dark wax.
I added a graphic and applied it using the decoupage method that I used on my french graphic washtub.
I stenciled the lettering on the glass and done. 
I wish I had a million walls in my house so I could keep all the things I make.  I guess this will have to go to the Antique Mall since I don't have all those walls. Ha! Ha!

  1. This is amazing. I wish I knew how to stencil this kind of thing...ohh the possibilities. A bucket list item for sure. Thanks for the inspiration.

  2. Oh wow , now I know how I am going to do my pantry door! This is awesome thanks so much for this great idea. Keep blogging! xoxo Doris

  3. I love this! I say take something else to the antique store and keep this for yourself!!!


  4. That turned out great! Such a unique piece!

  5. What a lovely focal point! Nice job on the lettering, too.

  6. What a great find and what you have done with it looks beautiful! Love the stenciling.

  7. Sweet and stylish...can't find anyone around here who wouldn't LOVE to have this!

  8. I'm really liking white and black these days and am using it a lot with our redo. You have a wonderful blog here! I'm your newest follower!

  9. This is really an awesome makeover, fantastic job!!! I think you should keep it, maybe find something else to part with? (I know it's hard, I too like to keep it all. I've even resorted in a few instances to putting things on the outside walls)

    Happiness, Mickie

  10. Ooo I love what you did with it! Hope you will come by and share at Creative Things Thursday. http://www.thevintagefarmhouse.com/

  11. Oh that is so very beautiful you did an amazing job. I love Paris anything!

  12. First, this has nothing to do with the post, but I am in love with that dress form. she looks great with the beautiful cabinet door. I could kick myself - I passed up a similar one last week because i had my mind set on something else. Love the graphics!

  13. Wow -that's so pretty! I'm pinning that to do something similar maybe in spanish for our back porch! Thanks for sharing!

  14. Love the wonderful transformation, it's gorgeous! I struggle with what to keep and what to sell all the time.

  15. Love how your door turned out. Such a great transformation!

  16. I love this idea, especially on glass. You have inspired me. Not only with the door but also with the stenciling. Something is telling me I need to learn this. Thanks.

  17. Superb! I would so much love to have one like that in my house. You did a fabulous job.
