We love to use cigar boxes in our DIY projects. They're colorful, super functional, extremely inexpensive (or free) and make beautiful cabinet faces.

Step 1

Use razor knife to score and take apart cigar boxes and a hammer to flatten any staples.

Step 2

Keeping with the shape of the doors and front of the facade, adhere cigar boxes to cabinet and cut to fit when neccesary using saw.

Step 3

When dry, make sure doors are operable, then use chisel to split old fence wood into strips. Adhere fence pieces, use panel nails to further adhere them.

Step 4

Spray with shellac, as many coats as needed. Be creative with your handles and hardware. Enjoy your new cabinets!
