You didn’t think I threw away those doors off of the old wooden cabinet I showed you yesterday, did you?? Just because I took them off definitely doesn’t mean they won’t be repurposed again.
But if you have been around here long enough – you probably know that! There are a zillion different ideas you could do to repurpose old cabinet doors. They are probably one of the most repurposed items in blogland.
These cabinets doors had mesh insets that were magnetic so I thought creating a magnetic cork board would be a functional use of these old doors.
- Old wood doors
- Spray paint (I used Krylon Dual in Classic Gloss Gray)
- Scotch Blue Tape
- Exacto Knife
- Straight Edge
- Hot glue gun
- Fabric (I used Riley Blake’s Verona Collection: Verona Main Teal, Verona Leaves Gray, Verona Flowers Green)
- Screw driver
- metal brackets/screws
- I-top button maker

Thanks Melissa! I was just on your site today. Going to feature you soon on one of my sites
Oh, cool! Thanks!
This is even better than the dresser you made earlier. I love those fabrics you used, such a great pop of color. Now I just need to find two doors and my sewing will get a splash of color.
So I’m assuming the wire part is pretty sturdy? This turned out really cute. :^)
