WHEN IS A DOOR NOT A DOOR?
Do you ever really have a good look at a door? I love old doors, they have such character. So many are just tossed aside now in favour of a new door. Perhaps the old one has a few cracks or is not keeping out the drafts anymore. Instead of just throwing them away why not repurpose them. They are a great surface to paint on. The gorgeous Flower Door would look amazing anywhere.
Old doors make fabulous headboards. You would have something no one else had.
And tables. How fantastic are these! You get a great old door, which are usually really big and thick and just add some legs and a glass top for a dining table. Outside I would just leave it as is.
How about a wall of doors, I'd feel like Alice in Wonderland. What a fantastic mirror, I actually never thought of doing that.
Outside doors make a great entrance to a garden and a beautiful swing.
You can hardly find old hall benches so why not create your own.
You would never know this cute bench did not come from an old church.
I just love this. How pretty is this shelf. It would look so cute in any home.
So why not repurpose an old door. The best thing is they are usually free is someone has replaced theirs or they are very cheap at a wreckers too.
