Cabinet Door Serving Tray

A while back I purchased a bunch of cabinet doors (6 total). One of which I used to make my Cabinet Door Chalkboard  Here.

It's now time for the second edition of my cabinet door re purpose.

I decided to use a vinyl transfer I had to make a serving tray. I picked the cabinet door that would work best for this purpose - an off white one that didn't even need painting just some cleaning Making this a super easy and fast project - Score!

For this project I purchased the cabinet door for $2.00, two cabinet door handles at Home Depot for $2.78 each and a package of clear surface guard pads for 2.97. The vinyl transfer was free. Making this project come to a grand total of $10.53.

I first cleaned the door with 409 and paper towels then went over it with a magic eraser. Wow! with just a little elbow grease - what a difference!

I then used the vinyl instructions to transfer the image to my tray.

I added the rubber bumpers to the bottom.

Then measured and marked where I wanted the handles.

And drilled the holes.

Attached the handles.

And WOW It's done! Seriously it only took me thirty five minutes to put together!

I made it for a housewarming gift even though I don't know of anyone purchasing a new home right now. You can't be too prepared though - right?

Depending on who I give it to - it can be personalized by pairing it with a bottle of wine and a couple of wine glasses or kitchen towels and a plate of cookies etc.

I so love how it turned out I may just keep it for myself.

Thanks for stopping by, please leave a comment - I would love to hear from you.

  5. This is such an awesome idea! I have cabinets in my garage from our bathroom remodel and now I think I know what I'll do with the doors :) Thanks for linking up at Doodles & Stitches. I hope you are having a great weekend.

  6. I love your tray and you did such a great job on it.

    My husband just took off one of the cabinet doors on our garage workbench - with his car. So, I removed the other one to create an open space. I kept the doors and now you have given me some ideas.

    Thanks for the inspiration.

    1. Now that is a happy accident! I hope his car is ok.
