What do you do with doilies?

I don’t have a single doilie at home! Possibly, because it churns up memories of doilies in every shape and size under anything imaginable in my house where I grew up. Doilies are sooooo a thing of the past.

Well…unless you can do something super creative like make lamp shades, curtain valances, etc.

This doilie is huge! I snagged it up at a yard sale a few weeks ago and just knew I had the perfect project for it!

We used the doilie as a pattern to cover the entire front of this unique cabinet. Actually…we didn’t do anything. Macy completed this cabinet with my inspiration doilie!

Macy painted the outside in French Linen. She taped off the sides with Frog Tape. Laid the doilie over the front, taped it down and painted ivory so that the pattern “transferred” onto the cabinet doors. I distressed around the ivory and on the sides and added dark wax.

Some useful cubbies and an awesome pop out drawer! How random is that?

It’s the new piece in the shop this week!
