We got a door from Habitat for Humanity, painted and distressed it, got a glass top cut, put an old dresser underneath on one side and secured it to the wall with molding underneath. The hole for the doorknob works great for a lamp cord.
I got the cool shadow box frame from my Great Grandma and my husband put a light in it for me. I got the cool old stuff holder at an antique store.

I love to scrapbook and I have always just had my dining room to do it, which happens to be the only table in my house and it's also where we eat meals as a family. So as you can imagine, it gets hard when I have a project going and I have to stop and clean up when it's dinner time. I was so excited when my husband came up with the idea to build me a scrapbooking table in our bedroom! Our bedroom is not huge, but it's not as tiny as some. So we got a closet organizer and got rid of a dresser to make room. I love it!

Beautifully done and it's nice to hear your hubby played a big role in it.

This is so innovative...love the use of old doors, especially this idea! Never thought of the doorknob hole being useful for the lamp cord. Love the organization of it all. Thanks for sharing. ~judi;) Posted: 3:54 pm on October 16th
