Are you looking for repurposed cabinet door project ideas? I have you covered! I’ve been a collector of random, orphaned, unwanted cabinet doors for years.
Some of the project ideas below are easier than others, so I’ll list them from easiest to hardest. But honestly, even the harder ones are easy with my step by step tutorials!

1. Cabinet Door Chalkboard Ideas
Mindi from My Love 2 Create is so clever with her repurposed cabinet door projects! Check out her Memo Board!
By adding a small piece of metal, you can easily create this Magnetic Chalkboard using a cabinet door.
A small cupboard door can be made into a chalkboard easel for the kids, kitchen or office!
2. DIY Pet Ramp
This DIY Pet Ramp made from a repurposed cabinet door is great for new puppies, or aging cats and/or dogs. It’s actually been in use in my home for years, with all the above—puppies, cats and dogs!
4. Make a Sign
Use an over sized cabinet door to make a welcome sign for your porch or entryway!
Red Live Laugh Love sign made from a microwave cabinet door.
Great stenciling tips included in this post, Happy Fall Y’all.
I’ve lost track of how many of these signs I’ve made. Every time I made one for my friend, she ended up giving it away and asking for another one to replace it. We could all use a little more of God’s Top Ten! Several more sign ideas in this article.
Easy sign, Our House May Be Small.
When I had a booth, I made a lot of signs, so see more in the post Signs for my Booth.

7. Paned Cabinet Door Projects | Lites glass
Some cabinet doors have panes or lites. They originally had glass in them. This photo display shelf was made with a small door that still had the glass!
This chalkboard hook rack was made from the matching door but without the glass. I had four of these. Two were used as doors to a cabinet. Imagine that.
This chalkboard is an easy project. See below in the build it section for a cabinet made using two of these doors.
8. Build it From Cabinet Doors
This Kid’s Dress Up Armoire was actually made from entertainment center doors.
I’ve always loved dresser harps, but didn’t have one, so I made this Faux Dresser Harp Chalkboard out of a repurposed cabinet door and random bits and pieces.

What a great idea! Make a DIY Lap Desk.
I used four identical cupboard doors to make a base for this bench. For me, it is easier to repurpose them than to use a router to make wood prettier.

What to do with these? Build a box (frame) and make a cupboard that can hang on the wall or rest on the floor. See the details in my post Shelf With Repurposed Cupboard Doors.
Make a small bench for the kids, their dolls or even for YOUR flower garden or patio.
A custom box was made to suit this one to make a hanging cupboard.
