Hey guys! 🙂
I’m a little nuts (okay, a lot nuts) when it comes to old cabinet doors.
I love going to my local Habitat For Humanity ReStore and digging through all the cabinet doors, looking for the perfect ones to give new life.
I mean, just look at them – they are essentially a pre-framed wood canvas just waiting to be repurposed into treasured farmhouse style decor.
Who could possibly resist?
I know I can’t.
Combine that with my favorite time of year, and I have the perfect storm of creativity.
And I love it, because that sure doesn’t happen a lot.

Clean the cabinet door using the Krud Cutter prepaint cleaner and patch the screw holes using the FamoWood latex wood filler.
Paint the cabinet door using two coats of the Folkart Chalk Paint in Sheepskin, then distress using the 150 grit sandpaper.
Trace and paint the letters using the Hello Fall free printable. See my post DIY Painted Wood Signs – Without Using Stencils! for complete instructions on how to do this.
That’s all there is to it! 🙂 I donated this sign as a raffle prize for a fundraiser. I hope the person who won it enjoys having it as much as I enjoyed making it!
I staged the sign in my Farmhouse Fall Entryway vignette for pictures before donating it to the fundraiser.

Love your sweet Fall sign. Tried to open the link you provided to make painted wood signs without a stencil but it doesn’t want to open. The other link you provided works fine.
Hi Tonita! Thanks for the heads up about the link not working – it’s fixed now! 🙂
