Repurposing old doors

Pretty old doors can usually be found at Re-Build-It stores and thrift shops for reasonable prices. With their vintage charm they offer endless possibilities for repurposing.



This bright white coffee table is so pretty you can hardly tell it was once a door.

Here’s another example of a door turned coffee table. This one gives a completely different look with the original gashes, chipped paint and hardware, including the lock and doorknob.


This one is a different style and would look perfect for a casual room. I like the color and the old knob. It looks fairly easy to make.


What a cute idea for a toddler bed and the bright color is great too.


A lettered door on sawhorses makes a fun picnic table.

As a potting bench, old doors lend themselves well to outdoor décor as well.

With the addition of a pair of iron corner pieces,  these door become an arbor with a Victorian feel.

Don’t forget about hollow doors, they can be repurposed too.2012_02_09_3689

This large work space was created with two hollow doors and some inexpensive bookcases.  I’d love to have a space like this, it would eliminate the need to crawl around on the floor when making drapery panels. I’m getting too old for that.

If I had the room, I would definitely create this. It’s a fantastic idea.

Have you ever repurposed an old door?


In a couple weeks I’ll be moving to Word Press and Google friends connect will no longer be available to WP blogs. I hope you will follow me on twitter, Facebook, Pinterest and rss feed in a reader.

Thank you! I appreciate you coming by so much!

  1. That toddler bed is just darling. I'll have to file that one to bring back out when I actually have a toddler.

  2. I had one that acted as a desk top when I was young and didn't have much furniture. It was set on top of stacked crates. Love the ones you found! xo Diana

  3. Great ideas! Love the craft table from 2 doors and bookcases. Very pretty arbor as well.
