Replace your coffee table with it

You’ve seen a door turn into a cabinet, why not make into something else? Like a coffee table! Share stories with your friends around a charming coffee table that shares a story of its own.

 Build your own glass house

Cut out the wooden area inside the frames of your door, get glass added, and voila! A window-like frame you can nail together to create a fantastic new glass house to warm and protect your precious potted plants and flowers.

Turn it into shelves

Corner shelves are known to make rooms look bigger. Cut to the chase of hunting for one and make your own with an old or spare door in your home. Give it a nice, shiny new coat of paint and place it where everyone can see!
