Doorway to DIY Heaven

At the ReStores you can find all kinds of doors: French doors, panel doors, shutter doors, sliding doors…a door of every kind! You many not necessarily have a need to replace all of the doors in your home, but if you think outside the box, you can actually use doors for many purposes!

Below are some fun DIY projects you can complete that use doors. Some are pretty straightforward, but others require a little more assembly. Luckily at the ReStore, you can find your door and other materials that can help you complete your project!

Kitchen Organizer – This DIY project involves using a shutter door to organize your kitchen necessities that allows for easy access and a nice display. You can secure the door to your wall or even replace your previous door with a shutter door to maximize your space!

Privacy Screen – Make your yard a little more intimate by adding a charming privacy screen made from doors.

Adding a hanging or floating desk in your home allows you to have desk space when you need it and a place to add notes, pictures, or décor when not in use. Below are some pictures of hanging desks made from doors. I could not find a tutorial that specifically transformed a door into a hanging desk, but this blogger’s instructions can be followed using a door.
