What is the first thing that comes to your mind when you think of a door? Like most people, you probably think of something that separates rooms, gives you some privacy or perhaps protects you from people outside. When this Linda saw a door, however, she saw something much more to it!
It started when she took an old door off its hinges and decided to make it into something useful. Of course, she has a knack for craftiness but by following her example, you can make something quite interesting for yourself. All it really takes is a little bit of time, the right tools and some determination.
After carefully measuring the door, she cut it in half vertically. She then formed a 90 degree angle by attaching the two pieces at the line where they were cut.
Linda then added 4 shelves, which she also cut to fit the door. She even found an old vintage replica doorknob to add some ambiance to the finished project.
Two cans of spray paint were required to turn a fairly ordinary looking white door into a beautiful blue masterpiece. You can truly see the difference the paint made in the before and after photographs.
Adding the right things to the shelves for decoration also made quite a difference.
Linda talks about the project in a blog post.
“I love this piece! It’s so cool and I still get loads of compliments on it. I think it would be cool to get different old doors and turn them into shelves like this. Think of all the cool door designs! So many possibilities.”
She is absolutely right. You are only limited by your imagination and it takes only small changes to truly customize the project for your needs.
One of the best things about this project is that it is perfect for homes that may have limited space. If you want something interesting to do for your home, even if it is small, this is a great place to start.
