The $1 Cabinet Tray

62K Views
Turning a thrift store cabinet door into a beautiful decorative tray...for a whopping $1.
I buy old, ugly, and dirty houses and flip them by myself! Come follow along on this crazy, DIY house-flipping life at my blog: The Bachelorette Pad Flip.
Time: 1 Hours Cost: $1 Difficulty: Easy
While thrifting, I stumbled on a cabinet door for $1. It was solid wood and in great shape- well worth the $1!

Next step is to drill two holes on each end of the door. After drilling the hole, I thoroughly sanded both sides of the door.
Using some leftover Sea Sprite paint, I painted both sides of the cabinet door.

I had some leftover cabinet pulls from a dresser I bought a long time ago. I added the two pulls to the ends of the tray where the holes were drilled.
