Cabinet Door Picture Frames

If you are willing to put in a little work, you can make picture frames using unfinished, discarded, or used cabinet doors. I was blown away by the sheer number and creativity of these do-it-yourself projects, using found or discount wood doors.

You can get cabinet doors at salvage centers, including the Habitat for Humanity ReStores.

Some examples of DIY cabinet picture frames, including instructions:


A collage of black and white photos, including scrapbook-type embellishments, sets off this family grouping from Jen at Thousand Words on an nicely turned Ikea cabinet door.


Cupboard door frames with tutorial from The Creative Crate on how to make these change-out picture holders using clips.


Nikki W. at Thrifty Decorating was so inspired by Creative Crate's DIY above, she created her own cupboard clip door frames. Distressed white, with sepia print and bows.


Frame openings are cut into cabinet door, with instructions by Kindra in her At Home With K blog. The distressed white against black suits the use of the salvage doors, here with color photos. Instructions can be found at her Cabinet Door Picture Frame blog post.


Nike at Choose to Thrive carried out a kitchen remodel using the cupboards as the actual frames. Painted black, with white mats, and filled with black and white family portraits.
