Chippy Reclaimed Wood Vase

Chippy Reclaimed Wood Vase

I got a whole pile of wood at an estate sale last October. It was a variety of barn wood, cabinet doors, table leafs and just all kinds of goodies. In that pile was a couple of pieces of chippy white cabinet doors

The patina was so nice, all they needed was some cleaning. I cleaned all the boards with good old soap and water and a scrub brush.


After the boards were cleaned and had dried for a few days, I applied a coat of Varanthane Crystal Clear Polyurethane Satin.



I got a bunch of old medicine bottles at an auction recently. I like this green one for this project.


I ordered a bottle clamp from Hobby Lobby. They have a couple of different versions. I liked the simplicity of this one.


I distressed the signs with 100 grit sandpaper. I was trying to make the paint match the patina of the wood.




I attached the bottle clamp to the cabinet door and attached the bottle.

I like the lavender flowers in this. The purple and green naturally go together and are a nice complement to the chippy paint on the cabinet door.
