Repurpose these doors

I have two of these doors 28 inch width and 80 high. I hate to trash them but they were bringing down the light in the house and I couldn't get all the paint out of the cracks. Hurry before husbeast sends them to the dump......what can they become?

    Lots of things! If you don't want them, take them to Habitat for Humanity Restore, or a donation center like Caring and Sharing! Lots would love to have them!

    Old doors make great tables.

    Jig out the top panel and insert a window in. Easy level!

    So many things can be done with these!! You could make them into a headboard, you could paint it and then paint the top 'square' with chalkboard paint and make it into a chalkboard that you could lean against a wall.. like in the entry way or in the kitchen. You could even make them into a coffee table or sofa table! Here's the one I turned into a coffee table

    I really like the headboard idea.......and I hate my current bed. One more door left to replace so maybe I won't even let the husbeast take it to the garage. I am glad the neighbor will be able to replace his rotted basement door though........thanks for all the help everyone.

    Get your whip out and beat back that hubeast (I almost fell out of my chair laughing at the new word I learned today)! I did not keep the post, but there was one where the panels were taken out of the doors and boxed in on the back about 4-5" to make shelves; then the unit is attached to the wall! This would be great behind a door...say in a bathroom....where you could store all the little things that clutter up under the sink! In a custom home we bought once, behind the door in every bathroom was a built in cabinet ceiling to floor that was only as wide as a roll of toilet paper! I LOVED IT! Out of the way, perfect for all those little items like shoe polish you can never find in the under the counter clutter!

    @Wildflowers & Pistols I finally got the other door switched out. I want to chalk paint it white and use it for a headboard http://www.mamasaywhat.com/old-door-turned-into-headboard/ attaching to the wall has me stumped. Husbeast is on board right now so I need to move quick. Any ideas on attachment?
