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.
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.
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.
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.
