Polka dots for grown ups

Today I am excited to share with you "my old cabinet doors"! Well actually, they were from my friends old kitchen,but now they are mine and now they look new! Here is a looky loo.
I love polka dots don't you? And I wanted to find a place for them in my home besides my daughters room. Can you guess where I put these doors. For those of you that follow my blog,you will probably remember my "Bakery" Sign in my dining room. Here is what it looked like before...
And now.....
Okay so I am not the "photographer bug" ,but they look really cute in person. I plan on hanging seasonal decor from the hooks for every holiday. I bought the hooks at hobby lobby by the way. That was the first time I had ever been to that store and let me tell you, that place is AWESOME! I wish we had one closer.
 Well here is how I made these.

This was the piece I took the doors from.

I sanded the wood,primed it and then cut out this little oval from a grocery bag.

Then I painted the black followed by the stenciled polka dots. Here is what it looked like when I was almost done.
I had so much fun making these doors that I am now in the process of painting another one. I will share that with you at a later time,if it turns out alright.
 Thank you so much for stopping by.
