I love repurposing old junk and turning trash into treasure. Recently I came across a photo of an old door that had been revamped and turned into something awesome. Turns out, there’s lots of things you can make out of cool vintage doors. Check out this list of old door ideas to get your creativity flowing!
Old Door Ideas
Rustic Sliding Door
Install sliding doors for a unique entryway. Love the rustic look of this! You’ll need to have access to a handyman (or be one) for this project! Idea found on Bright Bold & Beautiful
Paint the panels with chalkboard paint and add drawers and some hooks to turn an old door into a super cute AND functional piece of furniture! Another great idea from Bright Bold & Beautiful.
Mount a vintage door sideways, add hooks and maybe even a shelf to transform it into a great coat rack and display area! I found this idea on Home Talk.
Another one mounted sideways—after a little bit of chalkboard paint, this one could be used as a weekly organizer or meal planner. Idea found on Pinterest.
An old door can make for a perfect backrest on your rustic porch swing! Found on Pinterest.
What a great way to store all your favorite books! Makes me want to say something cheesy like, “Open the door to a whole new world by reading…” Ha ha. Feel free to laugh at my cheesiness. This great idea I found on Indulgy.
Vintage Door Garden Decor and Planter
Don’t have planters on your windows? No worries… you can make your own! Great way to spice up your yard, especially with the bright colored door! Too cute! I found this one on Hometalk.
Old Door Turned Coffee Table
I would probably take the knob off, more for convenience, but I love the green paint for a nice “pop”! Idea from Dish Comfortable Designs.
Double vintage doors serve as a garden gate. Makes it seem magical, doesn’t it? Another Passenger shared this idea with us.
What else can you do with an old door? Thanks for reading!
