How Many Are Too Many?

At what point does one become a hoarder?  I am a lover and saver of junk, but I have my weaknesses and cabinet doors are definitely high on that list.  Do you think there is a magic number?  Is 10 too many to save?  How about 20?  What if I brought home around 40 at one time?  You might think that I may have a problem, but, they were free, and they take up very little room.  Not only that, there are so, so, so many projects to do with  cabinet doors!  I have used them in so many ways, but there are still a lot of ideas I’ve yet to execute.

Easy Projects

Most projects using cabinet doors are easy even for beginners.  The very easiest project you can make with a cabinet door is a  chalkboard.  You can make a great message board for your busy family with very little money.  You can buy some  chalkboard paint, or you can make your own using a DIY recipe with  Plaster of ParisCalcium Carbonate, or  unsanded grout.  The best part about making your own chalkboard paint, is that you can use any colour of paint you have or you can pick up a small  sample online.

Rectangle Repurposed Cabinet Doors Can Be Hung Vertically or Horizontally

I like to use rectangle cabinet doors that allow it to be hung either vertically or horizontally.  I have these two chalkboards (below) hanging in my kitchen, and I use them all the time.  I can imagine how useful they would have been when my daughter was at home and in school.  Writing reminders on a chalkboard makes so much more sense than having all of those little pieces of paper laying around.

Easy Coat Rack

Besides chalkboards, another fairly easy DIY project is a coat rack.  You can make it as simple as just adding  hooks, or  knobs that will easily hold backpacks, hats and more.

Coat Rack Shelf

Or, you could make it more of a weekend project by adding a shelf to the top of it like I did with this lovely red one.

Another really easy project to upcycle an old cupboard door is a tray.  Simply use some felt on the bottom or some really cute  glass knobs and a couple of cabinet door handles. You can get detailed and do a  stencil or a pattern like this harlequin and fleur-de-lis.

What will you make out of a cabinet or cupboard door? Stay tuned for more ideas of what you can do with cabinet doors.  I like to build things and challenge myself with repurposing projects.
