Furniture Made From Old Doors

If you are looking for a DIY project that is unique, vintage and super stylish, you may want to try making furniture from old doors.  Vintage doors are already oozing with tons of character and make a great base for a variety of different pieces that you can use in your home.

I have been to several architectural salvage stores that are stocked full of these wonderful doors, in a range of styles and sizes, just asking to be used in a project.

Here are some ideas that are especially creative and unique:

1.  Door Tree Hall Bench by LG Custom Woodworking

Here is a great inspiration piece.  A tree hall bench will have added character and style when the back is made from a vintage door.

2.  Hanging Door Table by Green Wedding Shoes

I’m not sure what this table is hanging from, but I love the concept!  Most likely it is hanging from a couple of large tree limbs.  It makes such a fantastic outdoor rustic eating area.

Simply adding legs to an old door will give you a unique coffee table that will be sure to be a conversation starter.  See how this table was put together!

Shelving units, on their own, aren’t always that interesting or stylish.  However, one made from an old door is decorative even if you don’t have a lot to put on those shelves.

5.  Vintage Door Headboard by Houzz

I have seen a lot of instances of vintage doors used as headboards.  Some are very simple with a couple used together standing vertically and just leaning up against the wall.  Others are attached to boards horizontally like this one.  However, I really like the addition of the molding, to the top of the door, in this example.
