Who loves to repurpose, recycle, reuse & reduce? I was at the Habitat store the other day while in DesMoines and as always, I find fun treasures. Amongst the pile of doors and cabinets were some small to medium sized cabinet doors and one in particular stood out. Nothing flashy about it, I just loved the size and it was $1. Hence my easy $1 cabinet door DIY that I’m sharing with you today.
Seriously, again…nothing totally outstanding about this cabinet door other than I loved the small size, the price and the grooves in the wood.
Also, I love cabinet doors because you can do so much with them. In the past I have done several projects with cabinet doors and you can always find some for a steal at the Habitat store. They always seem to have quite a stash of ’em!
The other thing I love about Habitat stores—the many items that you can reuse, and with a little creativity—can repurpose into something new. Very inexpensive projects.
Easy $1 cabinet door DIY
This is the easiest DIY you will probably find. Takes little to know effort or knowledge of crafting to do.
There is literally very minimal prep work for this mini door. Which included some cleaning, filling and sanding the original holes that were in it from the previous hardware (which also happened to be off center). I added some sanding around the edges and throughout just to give it some rustic appeal. I didn’t do any painting as it had a white finish and was in great shape other than the original hardware holes.
After applying a vinyl “HOME” lettering which I made with my Cricut, it was on to attaching a bronze rubbed finish drawer pull, which I also snatched at the same store for $1. I screwed a small hanger on the back and that was it! When it was all said and done, not bad for a piece of wall art that cost $2 to make, right? And it was done in less than an hour.
A simple grosgrain ribbon bow attached to a large iron key hung from the drawer pull. It hangs right next to the display of old house pictures in the foyer.
Simple and sweet. Just how I like most things. Isn’t this the cutest and super easy $1 cabinet door DIY? It took a few minutes to do and looks fabulous in this old house! Really guys, go snatch you a small cabinet door to repurpose!
Speaking of sweet… stay tuned for the recipe on my next post! Happy weekend loves ~ ❤︎
