I love the end result of this cupboard door serving tray. When I was describing it to Kristi, she gave me a sideways glance…you know the one your mom used to give you in high school whens she was suspicious of you? Yep, that’s the look Kris gave me. I tried telling her that upcycling a cupboard door and adding feet would be a cute table tray for centerpieces but she thought I was whack! What do you think??
Of course I said “I TOLD YOU SO!” You may also remember she told me how ugly my stencil wall was too…and then she ate her words (; Remember my coffee table redo from my neighbor who was going to take it to Goodwill?? Love that my friends and family know I’ll reduce, reuse, recycle and hoard random treasures until I find a project for them. My awesome Uncle Steve gave me 45 cupboard doors a few months ago, I felt like I hit the jackpot!! I tried out clear chalkboard coating and came up with these babies:
So don’t ever pass up a cupboard door, you never know how many uses you can re-create with them!
To get started you’ll need a cupboard door of any size (we used a rectangular shaped one,) 2 drawer pulls we snagged at our local home improvement store for a few bucks, 4 legs that were re-purposed from an old piece of furniture (or purchase at your local home improvement store), white acrylic paint and a foam brush.
1. First things first, paint! We applied a light dry brush of white acrylic paint. 2. Pre-drill holes on all 4 sides of the cupboard door. 3. Screw in feet. 4. Drill hole for handles on each side and screw in handles.
Pretty dang easy, right?? As long as you’ve got your trusty drill and drill bits, this project will be a breeze. I am loving how it is currently displayed in my dining room:
This would also look cute displayed with fresh flowers in mason jars or even give as a gift (: Be sure to tell Kristi I TOLD YOU SO in the comments, hahah!! Don’t worry, she’s got a sense of humor…just check out her drinkable Diet Coke necklace!!! Please pin so your friends can benefit from upcycling too!
and embroidery hoop spheres to name a couple!
