RePurpose Wed – Doors

Good morning!

Cassie one of our fabulous dealers at the barn and the writer of the blog Primitive & Proper introduced me to her neighbor who is very handy.  I had been collecting doors at the barn and had all of these wonderful ideas in my head about how to make them into tables and other cool things.  The problem?  I just didn’t have the time or space to build them myself.  In comes Travis (Cassie’s neighbor)….my savior and now go to guy for all projects:-)

I know I have done a post on repurposing doors before BUT these are projects Travis and I are working on together and you can actually see and buy them at the barn!  This will be a multi project post but I am just so excited about how they are turning out I couldn’t help but share.

I had multiple of these very large 100 + year doors so I had Travis make one into a table {which will eventually have glass inserts I hope} to level the table out for a dining room, office or craft surface.   The other door he made into a hallway tree for coats, etc. I will be painting this one and adding hooks to the door so as you walk in you can hang coats and drop bags!

Here are a couple initial pictures of the two projects.  The table will be finished and is going into the new show space at the barn.  yep we are adding more retail space….I am going to open up the little cottage behind the main barn starting in January!







The third project was a smaller shutter (I think) that had beautiful natural patina.  I fell in love with the color a lovely aged green.  We decided to use four vintage legs to create this wonderful little table.  I see if being used as a desk or hall table in someones home.  Here is a picture of this little guy in the work area, it too will be at the barn this month.



That’s all for now!  Have a wonderful week.

* Come and see us this month at the SP Barn January 18-20!

    ooooh i really like the last one! that door/shutter is awesome! and i love the shaker style base on the top one- that will be awesome! are you going to paint the base? it would look fabulous painted and distressed with the wood door top!

    There’s a really good glass guy just off of 495 in Alexandria. And, I have some really cool old glass knobs that would look great on the second piece, the hall tree? I’ll send you a pic.

    Hi, Kelly

    Always love this idea of using an vintage door. Hope to find one of these soon.
