Salt & Pepper Shakers to Baseball Name Sign (Reverse Stencil)

Wow, was that the longest title of a post ever?!

By now you all know that I never throw anything away and once in awhile, it pays off.

Like these salt & pepper shakers that have been buried in the back of a kitchen cabinet forever.
(And have never been used.)

I figured it was time to either get rid of them or do something with them, so...

I took baseball paper and mod-podged it to a plaque.

Then cut my letters out with my Cameo using contact paper and stuck them on.

I forgot to take a picture, but I painted the whole board black (over the letters) and when it was dry, peeled the contact paper off.

I used E-6000 and glued the "baseball's" on.

Perfect place to hang your cap and medals for a perfect little boy!

What hidden treasures do you have tucked away in a cabinet somewhere?
