7 Ways You Can Upcycle Old Doors

Disposing of large items is usually a difficult task. Sliding windows and doors, for instance, are often made from good materials; it seems like a waste for them to simply end up in the dump. You also have to consider their environmental impact. Throwing them out certainly doesn’t help in reducing waste.

7 Ways You Can Upcycle Old Doors

People are getting a lot more inventive when it comes to upcycling old or broken things. In fact, with a little creativity and handiwork, you too can transform your old doors into functional or decorative pieces.

In this article, Renewal By Andersen® of Long Island, a trusted provider of replacement windows and doors, lists a few ideas that’ll surely inspire you to repurpose your old door.


Save yourself some money by turning an old door into a custom headboard. Creating a unique piece for  your bedroom can easily add character to the interiors.


You can use it as an indoor dining table or a picnic table — it’s up to you! Just keep in mind that balancing plates may be challenging if the door has panels and carvings. 

Porch Swing

This will definitely give you a nice and cozy spot on your porch.


Give yourself a good look with a full-length mirror. You can simply buy a cheap mirror to attach to your old door.


Serving up drinks won’t ever be as interesting as when you have a makeshift bar made from an old door.

Coat Rack

If the typical coat rack doesn’t seem enough for everyone in your family, you might want to consider making a higher-capacity coat rack out of an old door.

"I was very impressed with Renewal by Andersen. They showed up in time and we received several follow up phone calls as the installation was being done as well as the sales representative stopping by to check in on the installation. The delivery/ installer was very professional. I would highly recommend Renewal By Andersen."
