How to Upcycle Cabinet Doors into a DIY Plant Stand.

Author: Theresa Clement, MyFixitUpLife cohost.

I spied cabinet doors at my local Habitat for Humanity ReStore, and they inspired a DIY project idea. I could upcycle them to make a repurposed shelf that could act as a DIY plant stand. 

I spent a few minutes laying out the various doors to find four doors the same size, and one that is twice the width of two of the four doors. Since most cabinet doors are made based on a 3-inch system, it’s fairly easy to find five doors that fit this requirement.

The total cost for the five cabinet doors was less than $20. 

Supplies needed:

  • 5 cabinet doors from Habitat for Humanity ReStore

  • 1 can Krylon primer spray paint

  • 1 can Krylon Satin Jade spray paint

  • 1 can Krylon Oxford Blue spray paint

  • Two-by-four (a two-by-four an be cut for you at most home improvement centers)

  • Fasteners

  • Measuring tape

  • Impact driver or drill
