Fast & Easy Wall Hanging With Cheap Cabinet Doors

I recently purchased two doors at a garage sale for 25 cents each. Yep, a big ole whoppin’ fifty cents for both of them. I have no idea what they once were part of. But regardless, here they are….


I was thinking of painting them black & using them as picture frames in my kids’ bathroom. Change of plans. I was wanting to do a new blog post but with my boys being sick with a summer cold, along with this mama having way too many projects going on, my new little blog got put on the back burner for a few days. Is blogging something we’re suppose to do all the time? Sheesh. I have so much to learn! So anyway, I’ve decided to make some quick & easy…although no way near perfect wall hangings. They’re going to go above my small hutch in the kitchen.

Small disclaimer: It’s late at night, kids are asleep, mama’s sleepy…so keep this in mind. This is a super quick project here. Way less than 30 minutes! I would have liked to painted the cabinets/doors/whatever they are. But oh well…

Here’s the hutch that they’ll go above (and yes, I have quite *busy* taste)…



I have scrapbook paper lining the back of my hutch so I decided to use the same paper in the doors. Here’s a closeup of the inside of the hutch.




I used this paper, some double-sided tape, scissors (yes, those are my hair-cuttin’ scissors. I grabbed what I could find. Ha.)…




No measuring. Like I said, I did this fassst. Just kinda placed the scrapbook paper in there & folded it.




Here’s a close up after I slapped the scrapbook paper in the doors. That hole where the knob belongs was annoying me.




So I grabbed some trim…




And my glue gun….




Ahh. Much much better. I only put 3 teeny tiny dots of hot glue to hold the trim. This will not be an heirloom or precious piece of art so I’m gonna rip that trim off later & use it again.




I’m likin’ them.





Here they are all done & up on the walls.

Makes my ceiling seem taller. Since I used the same scrapbook paper as in the hutch, it kinda draws the eye upward.

It’ll be fun to change out the paper & trim for fall.







Do I know that those finial things on my curtain rods look really odd? Yes. Yes, I do. I can live with it for now though. Just pretend they’re not sticking out all crazy like. :)


Thanks bunches for stopping by!
