Cabinet Door Repurposed into Mason Jar Wall Vase

During a recent trip to a thrift store,
I picked up 4 matching cabinet doors.
 
I wasn't exactly sure what I was going to do with them at first.
I was thinking I would make a sign of some sort,
but because of how small the middle portion of the doors are
 I decided to turn them into wall vases.
 
 
 
 
Fortunately the cabinet doors were unfinished, without hardware and in great condition,
which meant that I could start painting right away.




I painted the doors with a few coats of a creamy white satin paint
and lightly distressed the edges.




Then I added a sawtooth hanger to the back for hanging
and screwed a metal pipe clamp to the front.




I made sure the tightening mechanism on the pipe clamp was facing forward
so that I could loosen and tighten it to hold a jar.




Lastly, I loosened the clamp, slid the mouth of my jar into it
 and tightened the clamp to securely hold my jar.

I made a couple with blue mason jars and a couple with green mason jars.

The pipe clamps can be purchased at any home improvement / hardware store.
They come in a variety of diameters.

  


You can vary this project to suit your space by using different kinds of jars
 and a different backing piece,

The wall vase can hold flowers, a small plant, herbs, pencils, make up brushes
or even a votive candle.


 
 
What would you use it for?
 
Thank you for stopping by and I hope you enjoy your day!
 
 
Oh, I almost forgot, I have a couple other cabinet door projects here and here.
 
 
'til next time,

  3. It's very cute and will be fun for so many seasonal things. You could do one of the little snow globe type settings inside a jar, too. I saw your drop cloth pumpkins and love them. You are so creative! Hugs, Diane

    1. Thank you very much Diane! I'm just finishing up a couple more wall vases on beadboard inside of vintage wood frames. These will hold winter/Christmas greenery.
