I made these utilty room cabinets from used crates for the case, Church Pew for the face and door frame and left over flooring I found in the Attic when I moved in for the door panels. Only purchased Items were the hinges and knobs and I had to paint the hinges…Hope you enjoy. I’m kind of on a strict budget this year….

I really like projects like this, giving new life and purpose to recycled lumber. It’s a win/win situation. Thanks for sharing.

Jeff, this is a great use of “scrap” materials. The cabinets look really good.
