25 In Christmas

Glass Cabinet Door Christmas Card Display

You might remember this pool sign that I made last summer from an Ikea glass cabinet door? Well, summer is over, and it’s time to decorate for Christmas, that…if you haven’t already done so. This pool sign probably will be one again next summer, but for now, I’ve re-repurposed the cabinet door into a glass cabinet door Christmas card display in my entrance! 

It would probably not hold up nicely outside during the winter, even though we won’t have freezing temps here, but sure a lot of rain throughout winter, so I would have brought it inside anyways. So, why not repurpose the pool sing during winter??? 

This is what it looked like as a pool sign.

Since I want to go all white and nordic, I gave it a few brushes of white chalky finish paint, but left some grey peeking through, and now it looks even more rustic. I erased “Pool” and the arrow.

I was so eager to get this up on the wall and forgot to take a photo of the in-between state of the sign, but you get what I mean, right? Anyways, the after photos will come in a sec!

I had printed out some designs for the display before and simply glued them on book pages and scrapbooking paper for a background. Then I stuck them on the glass window with washi tape. The Christmas Card in the middle is one we had sent out a couple of years ago and I love it so much, my girls are so cheeky and cute on it and I love having it up each year. I think this would look lovely with different Holiday cards on it, but I wanted to stick to the black and white simple nordic style this season.

I hung some white wooden ornaments on the hooks…

And for the extra Holiday vibe I hung a faux pine wreath on top with a simple white bow!


I’m really happy with how it turned out and looks on my entrance wall! The nordic wreath I made the other day and was hanging here before, was moved upstairs on the hallway wall and looks great there as well!

    This is very pretty! It is so sweet of you to share the designs. You made the glass door look so festive and the knobs with the white ornaments are perfect. I love washi tape too. I love the casual but tasteful look.

    I always fall back to black and white in my decor, accenting it with the colors of my home, so this is perfect for me. I love how you have made this piece to transition through the seasons, so easy to change it out for Christmas. Love that photo of your girls, they are adorable. I love how the wreath and the frame look next to the dotted wall, that is still one of my favorite pops of color in your home. And the simple wooden ornaments hanging off the frame really compliment it well.

    Hello Katrin,

    Have a lovely day,

      Hi Marjan, yes, that would be a lovely way of displaying birthday cards and notes throughout the year! I think I might have to think of another pool sign, and thankfully there’s still so much time until I have to think about the pool again, lol! Thanks for the visit, have a nice evening!!

    That looks lovely, Katrin and I like the idea that you repurposed the pool sign for now. The Christmas card with your girls is very cute indeed.
    Have a wonderful evening!

    I remember the pool sign Katrin and now you’ve come up with such a great way to re-purpose something re-purposed and make it fit into your Nordic theme. The photo of the girls surrounded by all the lovely printables works so well in the cabinet door. And the wreath ontop, just beautiful

      Thank you friend! I know it would have gotten ruined out there in the humid winter, so I’m happy that I can enjoy it inside now!

    This is your kreativity at its best- you have repurposed the repurposed!! I love this even more than the pool sign. Such an amazing transformation with just a few tweaks from your artistic hand. The Nordic theme just gets better and better. The photo of your daughters is beautiful and looks perfect! Thank-you for another delightful post, as always.

      OH Thank you so much Ellen! I am loving this more than the pool sign as well!! I think I will have to make something else for the pool towels for the summer, but it’s still a long time to go, so for now I’m enjoying this…You’re so sweet always, Thank you for that!
