Four Doors Down

Repurposing cabinet doors
Architectural salvage has been at the top of my thrifting list recently.

I scored these six doors on half-price day.

Solid oak hinged together.


Folding cabinet doors maybe?

Two of them were split down the sides.

More about them tomorrow.

Removed all the hardware.

Sanded each down and cleaned well.

Sprayed one side Ivory Silk followed by a light sanding for distressing.

This is the front side with a fancy panel detail.

I have been using up those annoying leftover spray paint cans which roll out the pantry at the slightest provocation.

So there is Strawflower, Lilac, Ivory Silk, and Sage all in a row.

They would make great headboards, signs, chalkboards, message centers, or tables.

So four doors down and two damaged ones to go.

See y'all!

  1. AAARRRGGGHHH just what ive been looking for all summer for a headboard project...sadly a wee bit to far from the UK

  2. Oh I could think of a ton of things to do with those and I particularly like the strawflower colored one.

  3. So creative! Love the colors! Are you selling or using them?

  4. I wish I lived closer...I would sooooooo buy a couple.....great job though!

  5. Those doors are fantastic. Great headboards for sure, or shutters, or a room divider or tables... probably a million things that they'd be great for. Fabulous finds!!

  6. I love the idea of using those as a headboard. As a matter of fact, my headboard is an old farmhouse door with tons of natural distressing and aging!


  7. Wow! You've been busy! Makes me feel a little guilty actually. Forget cleaning the house today, I need to get in my craft room and make something :)

  8. I love the doors you found. Definitely a score! I love the colors!

  9. I can think of a zillion cute things to do with these!

  10. I wish I had a couple of those for the rolling style barn doors like I want to put in my bedroom. That was a great score! Love the colors you chose too. Have a wonderul weekend.

  11. OMGosh!! Love those four colors, and they look fantastic together. I'd love to hang one horizontally over a couch and then hang art on it, or wreaths, or something like that--

  12. Great doors! Yes, I love them all! I have been busy painting this week and getting my booth ready. I had a busy weekend in the booth. Just a little sprucing up with new junk boosts the sells.

  13. I'd just use them as doors here, ours badly need updating!

  14. Love the way your left over paints made those doors great! I can see lots of projects using them!

  15. Boy!! These turned out great I just did a bunch of old doors and shutters last few months!
    I love doing it, looks like you enjoy it too! Love if you share them on Fabulous Friday Party
    Thanks Maria

  16. I have such a door fetish Donna. Just love them! I have one as a headboard in my guest room in the basement. I think you will sell them very quickly! Thanks for sharing with SYC.

  17. Great doors and great colors! So many possibilities. Thank you for sharing them and your pink chalkboards at What We Accomplished Wednesdays. Have a great weekend!
    Blessings, Deborah
