Reusing Old Doors

old doors 04.11.15
I Have had these old doors in the wood pile for too many years. Finally slapped on some outdoor paint attached repainted plastic plantar boxes and added flowers. Bungied them to the fence and here they are.

    Thanks Cathy....it reminded I had done this with an old barn door....at the top of the door I got some kind of wrought iron hooks and hung my small garden tools on it....then randomly placed little odds and ends on it....leaned it up against the a wall

    We are collecting old doors and windows to build a greenhouse this spring, hopefully it will not get taken out during tornado season here in Oklahoma!

    These just gave me the greatest idea for a set of tall, skinny, slatted, French-style doors I picked up from the side of the road last year!

    I have been collecting old doors to create afence along the back of our property, but our zoning officer had denied ourfence permit. So, I'd like to use the doors in some other way, perhapsfreestanding like your privacy screen. How did you make them
