If you need new cabinet doors or you have open cabinets that you would like to have doors on this is for you. With this tutorial you can build your own shaker style cabinet doors and save a nice chunk of money be doing it your self.
While these are not super decorative and may not be something you would wan in your kitchen they are perfectly fine for the laundry room, craft room, garage, pantry and similar types of spaces.
The instructions make it sound really simple and since these hang on the outside of the cabinet instead of being fitted into the cabinet opening there will not even need to be an exact fit. Once you have them made and add some handles or pulls or not to open them with, you simply hang and paint and you have cabinet doors.
This is the list of supplies you will need.
3/4 inch MDF board (cut to size at Lowe’s) or your choice of material store. I prefer Menard’s over Lowe’s because in my area Menard’s is cheaper. We would probably cut our own but that is simply my preference.
1/4 inch x 2 inch poplar trim pieces
1 inch finish nails
1 – 3/8 inch drill bit
Soft close hinges
The handles or pulls of your choice
Paint or stain you choose to finish the doors with
