Lithuanian, Polish, and French Kitchen Art Rescued cupboard doors


Well if you remember I have a few cupboard doors...(if you don't know I scored 27 free
cupboard doors off of craigslist)

So I used my home made chalk paint recipe which you can find HERE
gave them a coat of paint in pretty pumpkin orange.

I then went to the graphics fairy and got these great vintage egg beaters.
I used my freezer paper transfer method and transferred the images onto the boards.
I then used my families nationalities and used there word for KITCHEN
underneath.
My Grandmother is from Saumur France, So I used the French word Cuisine.
My Dads parents were from Lithuania so I used Virtuve.
My Hubby's whole family is Polish so I used the Polish word
Kuchnia.

I then distressed them and sprayed them with poly when they were done.
I thought it was a fun way to bring some other languages into the decorating scene.
I hope you have a BEAUTIFUL day.
