Repurposing Old Doors

Last month I showed you the old door I found for our family room.

While I am perfectly happy with the unadulterated architectural element it brings to the room, some people have higher aspirations for their doors.

Here are some ideas I saw on Pinterest for repurposing old doors:

Use them to make an arbor.

I love this idea of putting your house numbers on one.

Make a chalk board.

Or how about a clock?

Doors make great potting benches.

Or space dividers -- this one is outside on a patio.

A bookshelf.

A headboard.

And I just love this room.  The doors make a perfect divider and backdrop!

What's not to love about a great old door?!

  3. Hi Deborah, I was so excited when I saw your name on my followers list. You have no idea how much you have inspired me. I never thought about selling my shabby french re-dos on Craig's list . . . but after going through some of your posts, i've decided that it may be an ideal outlet :) Thank you for the inspiration of new ideas and of the inspiration of selling . . . you have truly opened my mind up to new adventures in up-cycling :) Thank you.
