Our very talented friend Shaena is incredible when it comes to DIY home decor. Every corner of her house is amazing! We find inspiration in every room. This is one of our favorites. She turned a free antique paneled door into a gorgeous mirror. The door's shabby condition was just the look she was going for, so she simply removed the panels and replaced them with mirrors that were custom cut at a home improvement store.
Another friend found this corner shelf made from a cast-off door at a boutique sale in Idaho. It was made from a door that had been cut in half. Brilliant!
We also found this awesome door-coffee table over at Joys of Home. Isn't that a cool idea?
Old wooden doors can be found at antique stores, flea markets, even on the side of the road. I saw a group of three with a "free" sign on my way home from church the other day, and I had to remind myself that the back of my car was already full of stuff and to keep on driving. Lucky for me it was. Otherwise, I'd probably be in hot water with my husband, who commented just today that his nice clean garage is beginning to look like a junk yard. (We've been having some fun with antique wooden window frames, which you'll see in an upcoming post.) But the next time you see a free door or window frame on the side of the road, grab it--you can tell your husband it's all my fault.
