DIY Corner Door Shelf
Keep in mind it is important to butt the smaller side into the larger side.
Once you have the sides lined up secure them with 3-inch wood screws.
We then attached an old mechanic's light.
The soft flicker of the light on the shelf gives it a warm, old-timey feel.
We also fastened some antique door hardware to draw attention to the middle section of the shelves.
If you frequent Antique Stores or Flea Markets you can find old doors.
The price will vary depending on the patina.
If you are worried about using an old door you can always use a new door.
Just remember to purchase a solid wood door as many of the new ones are hollow!

Have fun creating!

I love this it looks so antiquey!!! As I was reading the comments I pictured in my head after someone talked about shutters. I thought well i guess you could put a bottom shelf at the base and screw a small set of shutters to the door to make a cabinet at the bottom. I kinda visioned the little end table that my grandmother had that had little doors that looked like shutters around the table and that is where she kept some play things for when my brother and I would come to visit (we were the only grandchildren she had) So I was thinking have the top 3/4 of the corner cabinet shelves and you could have the bottom 1/4 with the shutters. Just a vision. Maybe some day I will be able to make either style as I love your idea. I have the perfect corner in our apartment for this.

Yes, my husband and I have 2 new doors that were given to us. However they have door knob holes already drilled. We’ve decided that we’d use this glass door handles to fill the holes and use a clear cut glass globe for the light, to emulate the door handles. Thank you for the idea. Linda V.
