My Daddy’s house burned and I have a small door from a 200 year old roll top desk! Any ideas what I can do with it? I’ve already sanded and polyurethaned it!

    Hi Ellen, So sorry there was a house fire. If you use 3M Command Hooks on the front you could make a necklace holder or scarf holder. If you want to make a chalkboard I would get a piece of wood cut to fit the inner section of the door and paint that wood (and not the actual door) with chalkboard paint. I think you could use velcro to adhere the wood onto the door. This way you can have uses for the door but not damage its integrity. Good luck, it is a lovely piece!

    Put your dads favorite saying on it! Such as my dad always said "If it's worth doing, it's worth doing right!" and then I'd put his name under that smaller.
