Ten Unique Home Decor Uses for Salvaged or Vintage Doors

We love Pinterest!  Where else can you find so many cool ideas in one place? We also love old doors, so we started a board which displays some creative and eye catching ways you can incorporate old doors into your home decor or re-purpose them into something entirely new.  Here are a few ideas from our board titled Door Decor:


This DIY door shelf tutorial is a winner! After giving the front of you house a “face lift” with a new entry door, use the old one to make this striking decor piece!


Here’s another DIY door bookcase idea. This one would work great with old wood or glass panel doors.


Might be our favorite “salvage door turned furniture” piece yet! Loving the color, the bench, the shelf… everything! What a genius way to turn vintage doors into functional “art” for your entryway!


Add some chalkboard paint to a salvaged door, and create this unique and chic organizational decor!


Here’s a new take on an old door. Introduce some character to your home by switching out an existing interior door with a vintage replacement.


There is nothing better than a good DIY home decor tutorial, and this one sits at the top of our list. DIY couch out of old doors?? Yes, please.


This combo of purple walls and vintage door headboards is a match made in design heaven.


Use an old door to make a unique outdoor table.  Just slap some paint on your door, and pick up these cool table legs at Ikea!  Love the contrast of muted aqua and bold red!


Hang some old shelves on a door and add some crown molding and paint and you have a charming hidden doorway!  Perfect for fun loving grandparents and helpless romantics.


And last but not least, BHG has a fantastic DIY article about how to turn an old screen door into a pot rack holder! It’s absolutely adorable and can be done in a cinch!
