Hallway mantles... they are the new rage!
One of the most confusing organizational parts of the home, the front entry. Why not make a "mantle" Shelves to display, so many hooks to hang, and room underneath for benches! This is a verrrrrry old door we re-purposed into a "mantle" for hallway display. www.facebook.com/gypsybarn for lots of re purposing inspiration!

Kari on Oct 05, 2015Love this and the use of the railroad spikes this is gorgeous! Torching an old vintage door would freak me out a bit I would be worried I would burn right through it! I remember wood burning with my brother as a kid though and would practice on scrap wood first so this would be just a lot bigger version of that technique that never occurred to me before. Did you strip the stain/paint off before torching or just burn it off? I am thinking about repurposing an old door into a fireplace surround for a small electric wood stove and a modified version of this with the torching a perfect fit! You always have cool thinking outside the box ideas - thanks for the inspiration!
