Blanket Chest Made Out of Old Cabinet Doors.
I had a friend who was redoing his kitchen in his beach house. The guys were throwing these doors away and I just had to do something with them. I decided to build this chest to store my blankets in. I cut one of the doors in half to make the two sides and I used whole doors to make the bottom, front and back. Then I cut about two inches horizontally off the top piece and added a piano hinge. I screwed it all together and bought some ball feet to add to it and then I painted right over the existing paint that was cracking and peeling just like I liked it. I sanded some of the blue off to expose the yellow and then I kind of white washed over the whole thing with white paint diluted with water. My brother built a toy box for my grand children with the remaining doors and I still have two left that I plan to paint a picture on and hang on the wall.
