Repurposed Cabinet Door Into Tray With Faux Suede Finish | DIY Spring Centerpiece Decor

I was provided product by DecoArt and compensated to write about this project, but all thoughts, opinions, and ideas are my own :)

Although we just had some snow, spring weather is in the forecast and I'm totally feeling it! I've taken out all the winter decor in my house, added spring decor, and now hoping that I didn't just jinx myself, ha!

 Today, I'm going to be sharing how I made this cute Flower Market tray that totally resembles the look of terracotta....down to the texture!

 To get this awesome textured look, I used DecoArt's newest product Suede. It's a lightly textured acrylic paint that resembles the look of suede, cool huh? The color I chose that happens to be a pretty darn close match to terracotta is also called "Suede".

 To start, I bought a cabinet door from ReStore for a dollar. Serious. And this thing is loooong!

 I cleaned it off first, and then gave it a light sanding.

 I initially was going to paint this whole thing with the Suede, but decided I wanted to add a little extra character. Luckily, the Suede wiped up pretty good, and I was able to do a bottom coat of white using DecoArt Americana acrylic paint in White Wash.

 When the White Wash was completely cured and dried, I placed a vinyl cutout on the middle of the "door". I found this on the Silhouette Design Store; just search for "Flower Market".

I then started brushing on the Suede. I used a cross-hatch technique, which resembles the picture below. My daughter says it's like using lots of X's and O's.... more so X's. :)

 I did this over the entire piece, making sure to get in all the cracks.

 Because of this technique, it's important to do a second coat to get the coverage you need to see the "suede" type texture. The top of the picture below is just one coat, and the bottom is two. Quite the difference!

Let this dry for a few hours, if not overnight. 

Next was the fun part :) Tedious part. Put on a good show while you do this! ha! I peeled off all the vinyl using some pretty darn pointy tweezers. If you don't have any on hand, you can totally use some toothpicks.

 Learn from my mistakes, and make sure when you place your vinyl, that all pieces are still on there. I was missing some shadowing on a couple of letters and a petal or two. I ended up having to touch those up with the White Birch later.

To finish it up, I drilled some holes and placed a handle at both ends.

 Once I was done, I was so excited to see how closely the color and texture resembled terracotta. If you know me, you know I loooove me some terracotta. Also, I'm so glad that I decided to switch gears mid-project and add the "Flower Market". It totally made this piece pop.

 And of course, since it looks like terracotta, why not add some to the top for a beautiful spring centerpiece?

 For the white faux aged terracotta pots, I wrote up a tutorial on how to make them here. I just love these and love them even more now popping off this tray.

 This spring dining table centerpiece is actually at my mom's house. I knew her white table would make it pop! I am totally transferring it to my house when I find a cute white table runner to pair with it.
