This is my first post to junkmarket style!  I love getting ideas for new projects from this site.  I made this door quilt shelf out of 4 old four panel doors and 1 old screen door. It is a great place to store my quilts and afghans. I also think it would make an awesome entertainment center. The only problem is that it is about as heavy as a refrigerator.  Also, if you try to make one, make sure you cut the doors down a bit for the width or you will never get it through the doors into your house!  I guess you could also just make it in the room you want to display it and never plan on moving it!

Thanks for the tip about trimming down the door...mine is huge, now that I look at it. I'll get started on this project right after Christmas. Thanks for posting this!

Great first post...can't wait to see more from you.
