I needed something that would hold up while looking great and not putting two million holes in my walls... this is what I came up with!

    great idea. I have about 5 different cabinet doors (that are brand new) never hung. They were left overs from someone else's project. I didn't want them thrown out so I kept them and now I know what I can do with them. It would be great gifts for people too

    Super cute idea! We just painted & replaced our cabinet doors & drawers. I'll be sure to share this with my friend that we game most of the doors & drawers with, along with all the hardware. The previous owner painted all the knobs. I don't think she used the proper paint since its rubbing off. On another note, my husband is teaching a Woodworking class for our church's kids ministry this semester. The director had told him that she'd like the kids to build a coffee table to be donated to a new halfway house for women & girls that are being rescued out of human trafficking. Husband came up with the table design, then about a week or so later, she came back and mentioned that it would be neat to make it from repurposed wood. All we could think of was a nasty old fence. Not! Then a week or so later, the cabinet door company came by to remove old stuff, deliver new doors & drawer fronts, build drawer boxes, & are turning a row of lower cabinets into huge drawers. Anyway, after seeing the doors, we have an epiphany! The huge door for the built-in pantry will be repurposed into a coffee table & since we were blessed with the wood, we're going to surprise the director with matching end tables too... We're so excited! He built 1 end table to see how doable it is for the kids to do. Turned out wonderfully! Does anyone have any other good ideas for old drawers? I'm sharing with my friend ideas.

    Ah, that's too bad. I notice 2011 in the link, so might be a four-five year old post.
