Does anyone have any frugal ideas for replacing cabinet doors? I do not want to strip, paint, or replace hardware on present doors. Thanks.

I have heard of using shutters. Maybe you could get from freecycle, or garage sales.

Remove the doors all together and hang curtains. I've made real pretty ones with sheets and dish towels. Make the curtains in 2 or 3 panels and it will be easier to get things from the shelves. Or you could cover the doors with blackboard. Write memos to yourself or keep your shopping list on it. If you have children put one on a lower cabinet so that they can use it too. I think they have blackboard material now that is magnetized so you can stick notes on it with magnets.

I've always liked the look, of some - not all - of closed cabinets being replaced with no doors and baskets on the shelves. I suppose this more often replaces drawers than cabinets but either way, it's a thought.

I agree with "perfumed fan". I am currently replacing my cabinet doors with curtains hung between mounted rods on top and bottom, this will help keep curtains in place and not getting caught on things being put in or taken out of cabinet.
