Cottage Display Piece-by Margo
After I had finished the door/desk project I had a big empty hole, I looked around my barn for ideas of something unusual to fill it. I had this old crib spring and it fit right in the space. Makes a great place to display items I have for sale.

Door shelf by Cassandra:
I always pick up "trash" and my husband asks what r u going to do with that? I had gotten off an old closet door. I kept trying to explain what I wanted to make with it and he kept telling me throw it out. I moved from Ohio to Kansas and made him hall all this 'Junk" when we got out new house I asked him to help me make this shelf. He acted like he hated doing it. Now he loves it and everyone who comes in out house and sees it say "oh I love it make me one". I also have a door I made into a coner shelf as well. We are looking and making a coffee table and hall tree out of door to.

Old Door Storage Cabinet-by Karin Bol
Ode to Simplicity From the HGTV board made this great piece
Here's how she did it:
I purchased the photo frames from Target on clearance for $1.25/ea. and replaced the glass
and backing with corkboard left over from my husband's bachelor days.
They're just hotglued in the frames. I attached them to the screen by placing
strips of painters tape right on the screen then adhering "velcro" on top of it
along with the backs of the frame. They're on pretty snug. And finally the basket
is just hung by a leftover little hook from the window treatment of the previous
owner of our house."

Debi sent in these 3 door projects she has in her home
Debi Writes " My desk is the livingroom desk reworked with same table but old door from my brothers old house, with mirror where window used to be, to sets of shelf brackets.
I also added some tin boxes to hold pens and pencils,
and a box below mirror to hold papers waiting to be put into action.
I found this pic on the net. I was unable to find a link to email this person about her project but here is her web site. There are several other great ideas on there.
Clydene Made this old door into a headboard. She tells the story of this door.
"It is the headboard that is really special ( to me at least) One day while driving past the house my Father grew up in and is no longer in the family I noticed the old door from the basement outside the house being used as a barricade against the rain to keep the water from getting into a basement window . I went back the next day and knocked on the door thinking the new owner would think I was an idiot and asked her if I replaced her make shift rain gutter with something else if she would let me have the door and she did. My husband and I had to cut off one of the panels of the door to fit the bed frame and after peeling paint off the hardware I had to do something with it so I attached it also
