Next time you’re at IKEA don’t forget to check out their scratch & dent area. At the Burbank,CA location it’s just before the registers to the right. In the section you are sometime lucky enough to find a diamond in the rough. Many months ago I found a large, black cabinet door for $3!! The front side was in perfect condition and the backside has some white scuff marks around the outside. It took me a while to decide what to do, but I finally decided on some “subway” style vinyl with one of my favorite scriptures Proverbs 3:5-6
I knew I still needed to do something with the backside so I could get double use out of this wonderful find. I decided on Isaiah 9:6 and am very happy with how it turned out. It’s hard to tell, but I did paint the outside with a greenish black and the vinyl is silver. It almost gives it a chalkboard feeling.
Here’s the mantel ready to go for Christmas!
