Happy Birthday Aunt Woo!

My best friend's birthday was yesterday so I made her a dry erase board out of whatever I had at the house.  We picked up a couple of small glass cabinet doors at ReStore months ago.  The idea was that we would do the project together.... I had the door sitting at the house, so I decided to do it as a surprise.

Just a small cabinet door with the door handle removed and sanded.  Leftover paint from my front door+unsanded grout = chalk paint.

Layered some other color in between coats so that there was some variation when sanded.

Sanded and distressed... added a scrap piece of fabric to the back.

The yellow leather rosettes came from a purse I carried around for a while.  The straps started ripping so I cut the appliques off to save for later... I finally had a moment to use them.

I added rhinestones in the center of the leather roses and topped it of with a silver butterfly.

Final product, looks like something from Anthropologie....not to toot my own horn or anything.  The best part is that Aunt Woo just bought her first home and she has her first memo board to hang.
