Reclaimed Wood Door

Women in developing countries who carry things on their heads, are remarkably strong! How do I say this with such conviction? I just carried a solid wood door 6 blocks on my head and I thought my neck was going to snap like a twig.

On a side note; I discovered another use for my roller derby helmet...

This is my new (old) door:



So what am I going to do with it? Well there is an awful lot of inspiration to draw from on the internets.
Click 'read more' below to see some of them.


For example:


This reclaimed door table came from www.outoftowntownie.com


This clever door coffee table came from  www.killerbdesigns.com


This magnetic chalk board came from http://eleven-life.com


An awesome coat rack came from http://ilovechartreuse.com


Finally, this beautifully simple leaning door w/ mirror came from www.pincookie.com

Can't wait to clean this door up and re-purpose it!

    1. Thank you for the clue to your identity... LOL.
      No worries on not being able to see the new house. It will happen another time. I will be posting the reveal tomorrow (maybe later today).

  5. Oh, really like the weekly chalkboard door as well as the mirror door. The first one is very cute, but I'd be worried of the practicality (balancing act of not letting anything slip into the panels, ie, a massive mug of tea).

    1. Agreed. I think my favorite is the mirror. For the tables, a glass top would definitely be in order. I hope you like the reveal of my door as well. I am thinking of adding some cursive writing too, but definitely after I make the post.
