House Rules Subway Art on a Recycled Cabinet Door

This is something I have pinned and been meaning to do for awhile now.  All it took to get me motivated was a little bit of nesting! I'm hoping the nesting phase will see me complete many to do list is my husband. ha! To make a project like this of your own you need a board, cabinet door, canvas or other choice material to affix your "rules" to. I spray painted my cabinet door and then measured how much space I had to fill so I knew how many lines of text I could cut on the Silhouette Cameo. I opted to add an image at the bottom rather than have it be all text, but you can do what you like! If you don't have a machine capable of cutting vinyl, you could do a freehand version with paints and brushes or scour etsy and find someone to create a custom set of house rules for you. The tedious part of this project was weeding out the vinyl around the letters...otherwise this project would have taken me about an hour and half less time. I used the 3M velcro hangers to hang this today since there is a return air vent in this wall. I'll let you know if it doesn't do the job!

  1. I just ordered the cameo and am planning a similar project. Where do you get the vinyl?

    I have some returns that bother me too but aren't they supposed to be left uncovered?
