Quick Tip #25: Old Doors As Shelves

{click to enlarge}

Here is part three of our Décor Quick Tip series on old reclaimed doors and all the interesting, beautiful, and sometimes weird things you can do with them…

#25  Looking for a quirky yet practical DIY project? Transform an old door headed for the dump into an upcycled bookcase or shelf unit! Choose a door with loads of interest – preferably something with moulding and recessed panels. Bracket reclaimed timber shelves directly to the solid door or remove the door inset panels for a more “floaty-looking” shelf unit. Another interesting idea is to half the door to create awesome corner shelves. Leave your door bookshelf rustic and peeling or paint it a glossy bright colour for a sleeker look!
