screen door corner cabinet…

this project uses my old screen door.  it’s been sitting in this corner with the french chandelier hanging on it… and I thought it would make a great corner cabinet.

my son gave us several doors last year—I think they were bi-fold closet doors.

I pulled my husband away from the kitchen re-do to put this cabinet together.  he used two of the doors and one 1”x6”, to make the cabinet base.  the doors came with hinges, so, all he needed was some screws and wood glue…and about 45 minutes.

after xmas, he’ll add some shelves, but, for now, it’s fine without them.

fyi-for the last few months, my kroger floral dept. has been marking down roses.  today, I found these 12 beauties for $1.99!  go check out your kroger!

  8. Hi Lynn- hey that's really a neat idea with your "doors!"

    I LOVE Kroger's flowers - the best priced and in best condition anywhere - and those for $1.99? WOW that's awesome!

    A gal should always have fresh flowers, it makes her a happier lady. : - )
