Cabinet Door Bench

This unique bench was made exclusively with supplies purchased at the re-use store. Have you checked out your local re-use store? At mine i found a beautiful variety of cabinet doors in several different sizes and cut from several different types of wood. I thought, what could I make to show off these doors? A bench! The cabinet doors make a beautiful back to the bench. I used flooring (also from the re-use store) for the seat of the bench. Head over to my blog to check out the easy way to frame up, finish and enjoy this one of a kind bench that any diy-er can accomplish. Plus, you can't beat the prices you find at the re-use store!
Time: 5 Hours Cost: $50 Difficulty: Medium

    I recently introduced my sister and her daughter to their area re-purposing store. We had a great time and our creative wheels were turning. There were so many sizes and colors of cabinet doors, this idea is a keeper for our next adventure. Thanks for sharing!

    Not to sound silly, but what is a 're-purposing store'? Would love to go to one!!

      @Janice Huston Look for "Habitat for Humanity" warehouses, or places where contractors can send old cabinets and other fixtures when they remove them from houses they're remodeling. Sometimes you can even collect them directly from a construction site which saves them money from having to haul the items off.
