When I got involved with Caromal Colours I developed a need for spare cabinet doors that I could demo on. Any kind would do – oak, maple, white, laminate, previously painted… At first I got lucky and a couple cabinet shops gave me their discards to play on. As the year progressed I kept my eye out for old furniture/cabinets kicked out to the curb. I stopped a couple times but found it too much a hassle. I didn’t want to haul big stuff home, all I wanted was the doors – but that meant I had to sit at the curb with a screwdriver, or hammer to beat the doors off.
Then, last November, Jennifer from The Magic Brush turned me on to a new place to shop for cabinet doors – the Habitat for Humanity‘s ReStore. I had never heard of it, and once I read her post I started googling to see if there was a ReStore in my area.
Sure enough, I found a local ReStore, and this past week paid them a visit –
I felt like I found a gold mine- $30 worth of cabinet doors, most were $1.00 each, a couple were $2.00, and a few drawer fronts at .75 each. Restocked, thanks to ReStore, and Jen!
