More Doors Repurposed!!

After the good feedback from the “Repurposed Door” post a couple of weeks ago, I was inspired to find more ideas and pictures to share. Here is what I found.

 I love this door that became a bench! The hinges and doorknob are still attached. Wonderful.

I love the look of this door that became a bookshelf! I bet this would be pretty easy to do too.

Absolutely LOVE this look! This is an old horse stall door that became a sliding cabinet door!

Or create a gorgeous arbor for the yard with 2 old doors!

The Doors

Well, if you thought this was gonna be a post about the band, The Doors, sorry to disappoint you. But keep reading anyway. : ) The doors that I am referring to are the ones that we open, walk through and close everyday. I have always loved how a door can completely change the look and feel of a room or how they can be used in other ways. I have found some great pictures where people have gotten very creative with their doors. All inspiring looks.

 Now, this is just fantastic!! A secret passage/bookshelf door!! I love this.

SLIDING screen doors! Such a fabulous break from the typical “open it and SLAMS! behind you screen doors”.

Another sliding door but this time it’s an old barn door. I love the rustic look and it’s incredible against the white walls!!

 Or what about an old barn door as a headboard?! YES!

Here they have turned an old door into a hanging table. Love it!

 This doors within doors has a very Alice in Wonderland/Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory vibe. Crazy good!
