I CANT DECIDE WHAT TO DO ? So, i bought this 100 year Old door. I love this door, It has so much character but I feel like I have writers block but instead of writing I cant think of a good Junk Design.Theres no glass in the frame, but the frame itself seems pretty sturdy. I keep looking at it knowing that it could be something great, but I cannot decide what to with it. I thought of a couple of things .. Like : chalkboards, mirrors,Picture frames, tables,or photo collages along with a few other things. ANY SUGGESTIONS ???

BillyJo writes: Use the door like the facing of a cabinet. The window location would be shelving. the front would be false doors. Below the window and abobve would be narrow shelveing facing the side. I did one simular on my website and have it on jms too. Except I cut the door panels out. I wouldnt do it on that door though.
I cant wait to see it!

Add drawer pulls to hang necklaces or bracelets. If you add the long thin drawer pulls you can hang pierced earrings from them. Upside down drawer pulls that look like a a half circle can hold post earrings or rings. This way if you get another idea later you can just remove the wood from the opening. If you wanted to you could add additional hooks on the sides and under the openings. Posted: 6:51 pm on August 3rd
CottageElements writes: What an amazing door...love everything about it. It is a work of art all by itself. It would be great to showcase a picture. You could just attach the picture with frame to wall and have the door just leaning against it. That way if something more pops into your head, you can change it up. Great find!

DarbyGirl writes: Great find. You should use it as a door, but hang it like a barn door on a sliding system.
I also just refinished an old door and made it into a display for my open house sales. I inserted sheet metal in the window on one side, and a chalkboard on the other.
Made a stand for it and hung a shelf on it for my guest book. Posted: 10:50 pm on July 29th

I have a door my husband found it still has the glass and the hardware it's gorgeous. I wanted to use it for the hall bath but it is too wide to fit. Good Luck!

DownHomeDIY writes: OMG...it is gorgeous! What about making a hall tree. You can add hooks and a mirror, maybe a bench to sit on?

Make sure you post what you do with it! Posted: 7:54 pm on July 29th
rustyhinges writes: I am a newby here but if you happened to have a smallish flat panel TV, you could attach the door to your wall and hange the tv in the opening where the glass is missing. It would make your tv go away and put the beauty of the door in the forefront... Posted: 2:58 pm on July 29th

Grasshopper22 writes: I like lady1880s idea of black and white photo's...the photo's should be pictures of the way things were 100 years ago. Or one big picture of looking into that house (3D) as if someone was standing in front of the door waiting for the lady of the house to welcome them in. Great find! Posted: 8:27 am on July 29th
lady1880s writes: I'm not sure I'm explaining this right but, why not put glass in it and make a collage of your photographs. Or maybe one large photo in(black and white) cut into shapes( sm. squares and layered)and framed by the door.Anyway it seems interesting in my minds eye. Posted: 8:44 pm on July 28th

ILikeItVintage writes: I love doors :) What a great door! I agree with the idea for the hall tree. It could also make a nice little room divider and you could hange some string lights in the opening. Fun Fun! Posted: 3:57 pm on July 28th
