Upcycled Door into Hall Tree with Chalkboard using CeCe Caldwell's Paints

Hey y'all! I showed you this beauty over on this month's #fabflippincontest post, but am sharing the details and video tutorial today!

It all started when my friend gave dropped off these three doors that she had posted for free on a FB swap page, for an old armoire that she no longer needed. (Thanks, Laura, YOU ROCK!)

I've told you about my love for CeCe Caldwell's Paints before! As a #cecebrandrep I get to share even MORE love now!

Here's a quick video showing how I painted and glazed the door!

After I let it fully dry, I smoothed the panels with a sanding sponge. I cleaned it, then applied the chalkboard paint using a foam roller. I applied around 4 coats of the paint, sanding in between each coat, but I did not sand the top coat. I simply burnished it with a brown paper bag.

I then cured it as per the instructions of the can, and added the hardware as the 'icing on the cake' for this month's #fabflippincontest! You can read all about the contest here.

I pre-drilled holes for the hooks, and installed the hardware. The cup pull is installed upside down in order to hold the chalk! It's just perfect for backpacks, fall jackets, and reminders for the kids as they go back to school!

What do you think!? Are you inspired to do some upcycling/repurposing of your own?
