I got four cabinet doors at a garage sale this weekend. I got four doors for a total of $2.00. I am trying to post pictures, and would like ideas on what to do with them. they have frosted glass.

Hi Okiegal.
I feel badly that no one has answered you. I don't have any ideas which is why I haven't. Except you could put them together in a square and put a top on for a plant stand. Hinge them all together as a mini divider. Paint one a bright color and mosaic or paint your house number on the glass and hang on your front porch. (Make sure you use exterior paint, especially if you don't have a covered porch.)
Have fun and post a pic of your results!

RE: Cabinet Doors

Cabinet doors can be turned into message centers. In fact we bought one, small--added cork to the middle and put cup hooks on the sides for keys. Ours was unfinished, so SIL painted with clear varnish. Sure looks nice. on the wall right next to phone.

RE: Cabinet Doors

Like the above ideas...also....

* I've seen these interior-lit tables in different a kid's room as a night light or more elegent in other areas for ambient lighting...just build a box using the cab. doors as the sides...and put a lamp inside....could go in a lot of style directions. Fun!

Can think of more ideas...but maybe they've found a function by now.... hope so!

RE: Cabinet Doors

I have seen the cutest serving trays made from cabinet doors. The wood was refinished or painted, four small feet were attached to the underside and a decorative drawer pull was attached to each side for handles.
