Renovating is a daunting task. You go
weeks months without certain areas of your home functioning at full capacity, and you end up with mountains of waste that you somehow have to get rid of.
Thanks to the extra-crafty souls on the world wide web, there is one item you’ll be able to keep long after the construction crews are gone.
If you’re planning a kitchen reno (or just like to scour scrap yards) hold on tight to old kitchen cabinets and use them to make one of these super cute decorative pieces for your home.
From a chalkboard for on-a-whim love notes to a serving tray, these three items don’t look anything like old cabinets.
Cheap, chic and cheerful. What could be better?
