How to Crochet with Pop-Tops

This is our first DIY project and it's a good introduction to recycled crafts. Salvaged cupboard door = serving tray - Craftynest. I noticed this stash of cupboard doors at my local salvage yard. The white one was the perfect size to make a serving tray. The old drawer pulls—also found at the salvage yard—made ideal handles. Their swirly shape gave me the inspiration for the pattern I painted.
