DIY Serving Tray

When it comes to amazing DIY transformations in the home, it seldom gets more amazing than this:

Serving tray, before

One of these white kitchen cabinet doors at the salvage yard doesn’t know it, but it’s going to go home with a superlative crafter with serving trays on her mind.

Serving tray made out of a cabinet

And here’s what that kitchen cabinet door became! Monica of Craftynest is the brains (and I suppose the brawn) behind this oh-so-easy DIY project, and she’s been kind enough to share a how-to on her blog. If you’re in the San Fran Bay area and you love Monica’s stuff — hey, one out of two ain’t bad — then you’re in luck. She occasionally puts some of her projects up for sale on the local Craigslist board. Lucky Californians!

    The best part, Jessica? It’s something almost anyone can do with the simplest of household tools!

    Yeah, I’m wondering if that would work with cutting up a 5-panel door. I love it!

    For matching trays? Why not!

    I was with her until it came to painting the design on. I’m thinking stencils might be in order?
