Repurposed Cabinet Door String Art Display
It’s Power Tool Challenge time and this month it’s all about Repurposing! I love taking something that’s no longer wanted and finding a new purpose for it. So this month I’m sharing a Repurposed Cabinet Door String Art Display.
My brother had given me a couple cabinet doors from a kitchen job he was doing. They weren’t the right size and they had tried to cut them down and use some molding to make it fit – and the homeowner didn’t like the look. So I collected a couple cabinet doors – score.
So here’s an after photo after it had gotten a good sanding with my favorite sander! (affiliate links included – see here for more details)
The molding was uneven so it need a good smooth down and a fresh coat of white paint.
Then came the fun of nailing.
Lots of little nails spaced out evening. They were placed just inside the molding in the inner tray.
Then came the fun with some baker’s twine in blue. The design totally reminds me of a something I would have doodled as a kid with a compass.
The baker’s twine makes the perfect cradle for the fun summer printable I created. Are you ready for summer too???

I absolutely love this! The string art makes me think of a fisherman’s net. I can’t wait to make one. Pinned!
Love it! and I love the quote! I need some string art in my life!
This is awesome! I’ve always wanted to try string art 🙂 I love the beachy vibe of this piece!
Wow, Maryann! That is the neatest display with string art I’ve ever seen! The baker’s twine fits perfectly with the printable and (to me) almost looks like a beachy net! Very awesome!
This makes a perfect summer decorative item. I’ve always wanted to try string art and I like the way you put the quote in the middle of yours.
Maryann this is so cute! I love the string art, I have always wanted to try that! And making it easy to change out the quote, is awesome, plus it would look cute with photos too! Pinned!
I absolutely LOVE this, Maryann!! XO
Heck ya, I so agree that some of the best memories are made in flip flops! I LOVE your beach string art, Maryann! I also love how you can change the printable but I think if this were mine, this one would stay in it always.
This project makes me smile. Probably because I ADORE summer and everything associated with it. And I totally agree with the flip flops!! Pinned!
I LOVE flip flops and totally am in love with your printable! It just might be the first one I have ever downloaded. 😉
Your string art is amazing. I love the pattern and the colors of the baker’s twine. Perfect in every way Maryann
I love that you can change out the quote! So clever!
