Cabinet Door Gets Second Chance At Life

You probably remember how we tore down some of our upper cabinetry back in May, well instead of tossing the doors I thought I better just save them in the event that I can salvage them somehow. Here is where I become a bad blogger. I had seen someone turn old cabinet doors into photo holders using chicken wire recently but for the life of me cannot remember who (if you know the answer to this riddle please enlighten me!). After seeing this person’s amazing work I, too, saw the possibilities.

My sister and her boyfriend recently moved into a new apartment so I thought a chalkboard for their kitchen would be a cute gift. I slathered on a quick coat of paint, stamped their monogram at the top and “notes…” at the bottom and distressed it. Eco friendly and all done in about 1 hour of working time, talk about a great gift idea!

Edited to add: Thanks to Katie we now know it was in fact Stacie over at the Creative Crate who made the amazing chicken wire frames. You can see her ingenious design here.

  1. That is a great idea. A shop here sells just cabinet doors for $4 so that would be a great gift for super cheap. I also love that amazing window you purchased. I think it is so awesome. And one more thing, we are renovating our kitchen and hopefully soon we will be making the vent hood cover. I hope it turns out as well as yours!


  2. I just love you ideas. You have inspired me to add more WHITE and usually I am all about color, but I love the crispness! Where do you find your chandies? You have so many different ones.
