Cabinet Door untouched ready for my husband
to use in our laundry room!
So I have had a little crafting bug lately and when it hits I am always looking for new little projects to work on.  I thought I would share a few fun, practical ideas that can easily be made.  We are literally talking about a few minutes of time.  So my craft ideas today all came from the idea of using a simple cabinet door.  Now we have a wonderful wonderland call Gopher Unclaimed Freight in St. Cloud and they always have a plethora of cabinet doors of all sizes and shapes ranging in price from $2.00-$8.00.  Not to shabby huh.  So with these fun little canvases came two of my ideas. 

Chalk Board
The first is a simple chalk board.  All I had to do was paint the outside trim a color and then paint the interior with chalk board paint.  Simple enough and you would never guess it was a $3.00 door!

Jewelry Board
The next idea came when we began finishing our walk-in closet.  I wanted a nice place to store my jewelery.  So once again I took a cabinet door and painted the outside trim a color and then the background white.  I then bought some silver little hooks from the hardware section in Target and screwed them in the door.  Walla!  A piece of art for my closet and a very functional one at that. 

I love crafting projects that are so easy and turn out great!  Happy Carfting!

doors from Gopher.  More closet to come!
