Quickest DIY ever: Make a decorative shelf with a cupboard door

Updating a blank space or trying to transform an area to make it look brand new can be stressful. You may feel you have to buy a bunch of items to liven up your home, or you may even get frustrated trying to decide what to do to freshen everything up. If you have a blank space in your kitchen, living room or bedroom, try adding a shelf to the area. Instead of going out and buying a new shelving unit, you can make a decorative shelf with a cupboard door.
Shelving can run from relatively inexpensive pieces of plywood to expensive shelving units, but if you have a spare cupboard door, it's easy to transform it into a shelf. By adding decorative brackets and cleaning up the cupboard door, this piece can add exceptional character to any room. The shelving can be used for storage or decorated with personal pieces to showcase your style.
