New Takes On Old Doors: Salvaged Doors Repurposed

If you haven't already noticed, there's something about
 salvaging and repurposing that really excites me! 

There are so many ways that you can repurpose and reuse an old door inside of (and outside of!) your home. Think creatively. What could you do with an old door? 

Check out these new takes on old doors and be inspired!

Corner shelf from an old door. Simply cut the door in half and add hinges or nails, and shelves.
Be sure to add a low shelf  near the floor to help stabilize and prevent tipping.
