ReFab DIY Alert #1 Old Doors or Wood Panel = Adorable Table Riser

This is an easy refab project to get excited about not just because it saves old cabinet doors or wood scraps from the landfill but because these risers are adorable! For this project, we took some old pieces of wood from cabinet doors or panels lying around the workshop and created a ReFabulous riser for a kitchen table or Island. Decorative risers can brighten up a space and create a focal point when you use them. 

Add some Dixie Belle paint, old knobs from a dresser, and a pretty little transfer and you are ready to go! All of these supplies are available at ReFabulous Furnishings. 


At the center of a table for salt and pepper and other condiments
