From Curb Side Door to First Impression Art Piece!

155K
Well, with all of our renovations - we have finally reached the decorating stage, and as I typically sell all of my creations - I decided that this one was for us! Displaying just how fun and quirky our little family really is! And now we finally have a place for all of our coats, scarves, purses, sweaters and more! A fun piece not only to make but to display!
Come visit our faebook page for more inspiration and fun with re-purposing!

    I had a door given to me just like this and I told the man I didn't need it! I never thought about doing this with it.... And I'm a photographer too why did I think about this.

    Very, very nice. I have been scratching my head on what to do with the big blank wall that is part of our living room and the stair case. Although I am not as talented as you, this gives me a few excellent ideas. thanks for sharing.

    These are beautiful! I just loved re-purposed pieces if I could ( maybe 1 day) every piece of furniture and art would be something re-purposed, they add so much character and personality to a home besides being beautiful

    I have a metal door. It was a storm door - with all glass. Glass was broken, now I am trying to find a way to recycle. Any suggestions??

      if the door has small frames like this one, you could just hang the door and add individual hooks on some, or add framed photos. or really anything small that could fit nicely on the side. hanging nic nacks, incense or even add wood behind it, paint with chalk board or magnetic paint and you have your self a nifty display door :) just some ideas

    I just found a door close to this one. We have never done anything like this. Not creative at all! How do we get the two tones and make it look so old and beat up? LOVE this idea so much!

    How did you hang the door? I have one I am re-doing similar to this and although I am crafty, I haven't worked with a piece so heavy.

    Hello I was able to find a great door for to do this project. My only concern is the door did not include a door know. So im not sure weather to purchase a door know or fill in the hold some way. Any suggestions would be helpful. Will be starting the project in the upcoming week. Also love your thread your doors look amazing. So inspirational.
