Repurposed Cabinet Doors

My in laws are remodeling their kitchen.  Of course I asked for anything and everything that they were going to throw out or give away.  I asked and I received.  I got several  cabinet doors from them.  They are keeping the bases but replacing the doors.  Hmmmmm....what to do, what to do.  I KNOW!
I removed the hinges, painted the middle with chalk board paint and then a cute color on the frame and TA DA!
(The doors above are not the same size as the doors below. I painted the smaller doors first and that's what I got the pictures of but you get it right? Same doors just different size.)

But that's not all.  It's a sandwich board!  I connected two of the same size doors together with some hinges and now it can go on a table where you can see both sides. Or two kids can write or draw at the same time.  I wrapped a ribbon around the two hinges and tied it in the middle so they are covered. I realize I didn't write anything on it but if I had, one side would have said, "Menu:  BBQ Sandwich and french fries!"  Then the other side would have said, "KITCHEN'S CLOSED!"   I don't love to cook so I would probably keep this saying for a while.  :) 

I connected each of the bottom corners with some ribbon so when it's opened it stops at a certain point.  I attached the ribbon with cute thumb tacks.  Sorry no close up pick.  I swear someday I will read my camera manual so I can be fancy. :)

Hope you like her!

You are so clever! I can't believe those were cabinet doors. I love the idea that two kids can use it at the same time. Great work! I am a new follower from Tatertots and Jello. Vicky from
