The $1 Cabinet Tray

63,009 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.
The finished product cost $1 and perfect for displaying little treasures!

    I would glue cork to the underside so it can do double duty. When not in use as a tray, it can hang on the wall and be a message board. Cork bottom will also protect the glass tops of tables.

      @Susan Bechamp The cork would also be functional in the middle recessed part to act as a "coaster" for drinks. Great idea!

    I made chalkboards out of several and gave as gifts, including markers and eraser in a cute little bucket that hung on a hook that I put on one side.

      @Carolyn Cute idea! So many DIY projects with cabinet doors- that's why I never pass them up while thrifting!
