10 Ideas for Upcycling Old Doors

Do you have a particular thing you love? That you just can not walk past? I am like this with a few things, chairs, china, and….doors! I adore old doors! And they are so versatile in upcycling. Today I have gathered 10 ways to upcycle old doors. It is easy to find a tonne of old doors at the local salvage yard, on gumtree and eBay and also at garage sales. I have found some on the side of the road, and via some vintage stores. You can just leave them as you find them, or paint them to create a new look. They can be used for shelves, tables, bedheads, bookcases, creating outdoor areas and more. Take a look at the following for some inspiration. Which is your favourite? And do you have a project to share?

Drop me a line and we will let people know all about it!
