cabinet doors

I was feeling adventurous last week and took a little trip to my local Habitat ReStore. I've been wanting to go forever and decided my surprise day off last Friday (with my 4-year-old son at daycare) was the perfect opportunity. I discovered they sold cabinet doors. Amazing pieces of beautifully framed solid wood for $2. So I loaded up a cart with 12 cabinet doors and 2 drawer fronts, paid $14.98 for my treasures and headed for home. I'm pretty sure the guy at the cash register thought I was nuts. I'm glad my son wasn't with me because I'm sure he would have been asking "why do we need so many doors?" over and over and over again. I don't know why I need so many doors. I just do. My favorite find was this one. . .

$2 for a beautiful square door with a decorative raised panel. I have big plans for this one and it's already had a couple coats of spray paint. Hopefully I'll have a project to share soon. The other doors are still in my trunk since I'm not sure where I'm going to put them all!

  1. I'm loving these ideas! It would be a great project to use my Cricut - all sorts of cute stuff to cut out in vinyl!!
