simple repurpose of cabinet doors into frames

March 30, 2017

Hi friends, I'm so glad you are here!  Today I am sharing a simple repurpose project using cabinet doors.  Did you know cabinet doors can be repurposed into frames?  I used two doors from an unused china hutch to make these cute frames.

For this repurpose you will need:

Cabinet doors
Sandpaper
Wood Stain or Paint
Rag to apply the stain
paintbrush
Wood Filler
Sawtooth picture hangers
Double-sided tape
Pictures to put inside your frames

Before

How to make the frames:

Remove all of the hardware and sand the cabinet doors with a fine-grit sandpaper.  I sanded the outer part only because the picture will be placed in the middle covering it up.



I used wood filler to cover the holes.  I plan on reattaching the knobs so I didn't fill in those holes. 


I used Varathane wood stain on the part I sanded.  The color is called Sunbleached.  You can purchase it HERE   I didn't sand the middle part of the doors because that is where the pictures will be placed.  After I finished staining the frames the middle looked unfinished, so I painted it.  So glad I picked this sample up for 50 cents!   



I used a sawtooth picture frame hanger on the back of the frames. 

And double-sided tape to hold my pictures in place.


I cleaned the knobs with a baking powder and vinegar solution, then I reattached the knobs to the frame. 




I chose two of my own photographs to put in the frames. Hyacinth's, are one of my favorite spring flowers, I love them for their fragrance and delicate blooms. When I go grocery shopping I usually pick one or two up for my home.

I hung the frames above my mantel to give it some spring love.

I found this key at Michaels Craft Store and hung it from the knob.
