A bit of Arty DIY!

My wardrobes have been bugging me ever since we got them!!!

You have to open one door in order to open the other door and as there are no handles on the mirror door you obviously get finger prints all the time and I hate housework enough...
...I certainly don't want to be doing extra for no good reason!!! A domestic Goddess I am not LOL

I suddenly had this eureka moment and made some "door handles" this weekend.
I cut two labels from grungeboard and added the little key hole die cut out too so that it is easier to grip.

Painted them on both sides with Adirondack juniper paint dabber to match my curtains ;)
Stamped my Dance dictionary background in Archival coffee on both sides.

Edged both sides with gold paint dabber and screwed them to the doors!

'Tis a small detail but you can't begin to imagine how happy it made me!!! ROFL

Result :)
Thanks for looking....see...... we girls can do DIY too ;)
