Re-purposing a Cabinet Door from ReStore (Habitat for Humanity)

If you live near a ReStore that is run by the Habitat for Humanity charity, you MUST run, not walk to check it out!!
They have tons and tons of building supplies....from old to new.
The prices are out of this world.
I bought this WHITE cabinet door for $1.00
I painted it red with paint I had on hand.
Used blackboard paint that I had on hand.
Bought some embellishments at Hobby Lobby for $2.00...forgot my 40% off coupon.
A drawer pull from Hobby Lobby for $4.00...again, forgot my 40% off coupon.
A box of chalk for $.77.
Touched up with black paint.
Used my trusty little MOUSE sander.
And now I have a Christmas gift for less than $10.00.
If you were to buy one already done and probably made in China, you would be paying at least $25.00! This is good ole AMERICAN MADE by ME!!
