Today I took part in the Thrifty Style Team, which is a group of talented ladies who get together once a month to bring you thrifty DIY projects and decor inspiration that won’t break the bank! Thrifty Style Team is hosted by my awesome and talented friend Julie at Redhead Can Decorate!
My contribution to this month’s Thrifty Style Team is how to repurpose cabinet doors into wall decor. I love repurposing cabinet doors and I’ve done several different projects (you can see them all here) but this is a new twist.
I’ve had this old cabinet door I got from Habitat For Humanity ReStore for a few years now. I painted it and used it as a wall leaner in the past. I didn’t get pictures of how I painted and cracked it, but it is the same process as my cabinet door project here. The only difference between this door and the doors in the project I linked is that I crackled this entire door whereas I only crackled sections on the other doors.
I found these sweet vintage style double coat hooks on Amazon that were perfect for this project!

I hung each hook 1/3 of the way down it’s respective panel. I’m not sure I like it that way or not yet – I have to live with it for a while before I can make a decision. Do you have to live with new-to-you furniture or decor in your home before you know if you like it or not? Sometimes I’ll instantly love or hate it; sometimes I have to live with it for a while to see if it’ll grow on me.
I hung it up on the wall between my dining and breakfast room. If you’re a regular here you’re probably saying to yourself “She has a breakfast room?”. Up until now I haven’t shown it on the blog because I haven’t got it to where I want it yet. The table belonged to my late uncle and the chairs belonged to my late mother-in-law. I want to refinish both but I haven’t gotten around to it. I’m hoping to get it finished this month, but I’m not holding my breath 🙂
This part of our home faces our backyard. Our cats often sit at the back door to watch the goings on outside.
I hope you enjoyed this post and I hope it inspires you to repurpose some cabinet doors into gorgeous wall decor!

Hey Michelle – we love this projects. We too have some cabinet doors, and we’ve never used them. You’ve inspired us to get into the workshop and get busy. Thanks so much for sharing.
You’re very welcome ladies! I’m so happy this project inspired you!
I love all the chippy goodness! Your fresh idea is perfect for the space and adds so much character. Thanks for the inspiring idea!
Thanks so much Meegan! I’ve looked for what feels like forever for something to fill this space so I was very happy this worked!
This is a great use for cabinet doors! You are going to have so much fun changing out what you display on those pretty vintage hooks. How did you hang this on the wall?
Thanks so much Paula! And I knew there was something I forgot to add to this post – thanks for the heads up! I used two D rings on the cabinet door and small nails in the wall to hang it up. I’ll add a picture of it here in a bit. Thanks again!

I want to start seeing your breakfast room, Michelle! Looks adorable just like it is now! Your cupboard door looks great; it will be fun to use all year round:)
Thanks so much Lora! Yes this will be a lot of fun to decorate year round. Now that I have my breakfast room a little closer to where I want it I will start sharing it here, but I still can’t wait to get the table and chairs done!
Dorothy Taylor says
I love your use of old cupboard doors!!! Where did you get that adorable wicker planter??
Thank you Dorothy! I got the basket from Decor Steals! They’re out of stock, but since it was such a popular item I’m sure they will have them back in stock soon!
Angie @ Postcards from the Ridge says
This is a great upcycle, Michelle! I love the basket of flowers and the empty frames. I’ve got a couple of similar doors in my garage and you’ve inspired me to dig them out and do something useful with them! Thanks for the inspiration!
Thank you so much Angie! I’m so happy this inspired you!
Kelly Radcliff says
Michelle I love this idea of cabinets and hooks! You styled yours beautifully. Fun to see your breakfast nook too…I think it’s beautiful!
Jane Windham says
Michelle, I love how your repurposed cabinet door fits perfectly in that spot in your breakfast room! I remember trying to crackle paint way back in the late 90s! I still love the way it looks!
Thank you so much Jane! Crackled paint is one of my favorite paint looks for sure!
Always love your ideas and this one is super cute! Pinned 🙂
Thanks so much Cindy! This one was so fun to make!
