    What about as a room divider? Hang it from the ceiling with heavy duty hooks. It will give you a room divider without closing the space off.

    Take the boards apart, sand well, and stain or seal as desired. Make floating shelves for your living room, kitchen, bedroom, etc. Floating shelves look wonderful and add a lot of storage/display space!

    How about a front porch wreath holder? Change out the wreath or decorations by season or holiday.
    If you want to bring it in your home you will need to do some cleanup(sanding) but you could dissolve some 000Steel Wool in vinegar n water and stain it returning it to that time worn look without the potential for bringing bugs or bacteria. Try hanging a picture or wreath on the screen. Lucky you-great find!

    There are so many ideas for gates/doors like yours. First, you might want to remove the large piece of wood on the right but leave the hinges-they give it character. We were given one and hung it on the wall but it is really HEAVY and beware it could be crookedly built so check that out before putting anchors in your wall. These even look wonderful propped up against a wall. Once you power wash it/ hand wash it/ etc and decide where to place it thee are tons of things to hang from it...seasonal wreaths, basket full of fruit/flowers, install hooks for coats, hats,. I would check pinterest for additional ideas. Love the door!
