I bought a few cupboard doors at the Restore, I love that place! Unfortunately the closest one to my town is four hours away :(
I brushed some homemade chalk paint onto it, and then just brushed it out until it was evenly coated, but wasn't solidly covered.
Now that I was at this point, I wasn't sure which direction to take. It seemed kind of pointless. I made the knobs (check out the tutorial here http://libler.blogspot.ca/2012/12/how-to-make-dollar-store-drawer-pull.html ) and hung the stockings on it.
For another look, I hung these beautiful Christmas ornaments on it. I will definitely be making more signs in the future.
