Upcycled Cabinet Door to Serving Tray

I’m going through some reader mail ideas that I have saved in a folder. But now, I have realized there were a couple that I never shared. Shame on me! I’m so sorry to those readers who shared their cute ideas and I neglected to share them. Ugh. 

For example, isn’t this a great idea? Kunika from the Pretty Homely blog [that’s the title of her blog, not my description of her blog] turned an old kitchen cabinet door into a serving tray by giving it a fabulous finish and adding handles. It’s that pretty?

I could do this! I have a kitchen cabinet door that I had painted like a flag. And I have some leftover handles too.

The only problem with mine is that it’s a little big, and it’s pretty heavy. So, i’ll save the idea for the future. Thanks for the inspiration Kunika!

Reader Mail: Christmas Ornament Upcycle

I’ve been quiet over here on the Trash to Treasure blog because I have been blogging like crazy over on my other blog: Faith Creativity Life. I’m doing a Pinterest Project over there where I test out or try some project from Pinterest every day for 31 days. 

I’m catching up on some reader mail, and I have an idea for you from Linn, one of my T2T readers. Right now, Christmas ornaments are 90% off in most places and you can find whole boxes of plastic ornaments for a few dollars. They aren’t exactly trash, since they are new. But they are likely boring and dull. 

Linn shared an idea for how she spruced hers up. You may or may not need to paint yours, but isn’t the added ribbon super? Be sure to read the full post on Linn’s blog The Home Project

Thanks for the great idea Linn! If we all started our Christmas ideas right now, we wouldn’t have any trouble feeling relaxed at Christmas.
