I love these decorative wall panels and guess where they came from? They were drawer fronts from a large 1970's buffet I bought at an auction for $10. I am going to paint the furniture for my entry and I did not need the drawers, I am putting in baskets. After looking at the thick carved drawers fronts, I noticed the part you see below is actually plastic and came right off with minimal prying! My furniture piece is giving me several projects now, I love it!
I primed and spray painted these and sanded for light distressing. I covered the hardware holes with a wood medallion I bought at Hobby Lobby. I also glazed in a few places like the medallion.
Here is the drawer front on the furniture below.
And here is a before/after picture.
The great thing about these is they are light weight for hanging. There is no way you would know these are plastic instead of wood by just looking and who is going to go touch your wall panels and tap it to see if it sounds like wood, lol. I find I tap everything I pick up in the thrift store to see what it is made of.
