Repurposing Cabinet Doors into Weekly To Do #DontTHRASHit

Disclosure: This post is sponsored by Habitat for Humanity Home Center

I love a great repurposing project, today I am going to share with you how I am repurposing cabinet doors.  I love the idea of turning something that could possibly be trash into something new.  We jumped right back into our groove of homeschooling last week, summer is not officially over but since we will be on vacation in September we decided to incorporate a year round schedule.  I now have a 7th grader, preschooler, and toddler.  All three are doing schooling each day.  My preschooler is a very visual learner he is taking after me in that he enjoys a schedule.  I wanted to give him his own space to keep track of what he needed to work on for the week, something that was easy to understand and in his face rather than in a folder.

I picked up a few items at my local Habitat Home Center for this project.  The cabinet door$5 (in perfect condition) and knobs $.25 each from Habitat Home Center.

I had paint handy from other projects I had previously done, the chalkboard spray paint is my all time favorite by the way.  I found the clips with flat backs for $2 at Walmart.

I gave the cabinet door a quick sanding with a piece of sand paper and then two coats of chalkboard spray paint.  Let it dry in the sun 8 hours and then brought it in to finish up.  I  have these amazing chalkboard ink pens which are more like a marker and wipe off with a wet rag.  I then went to town personalizing the cabinet door for weekday to do’s.  I took my hot glue gun, spaced out the clips and knobs and glued them down to the cabinet door.

It turned out way better than I imagined.  I love that I can clip busy work, homework or daily important papers for the appropriate day.  The knobs are perfect for hanging just about anything.  I could have drilled holes and made the clips and knobs sturdier, but for what I am using them for they won’t be getting  a lot of weight.
