In honor of St. Patrick’s Day I thought I’d follow the “green” theme and feature some of my favorite upcycles…after all what better way to be green?
I have a love affair with doors. I have so many doors in my shed, in my garage, etc. Its one of my favorite things to upcycle. Doors represent possibilities, mysteries, and opportunities. An open door is an invitation, a closed door a mystery. They offer entry or keep the elements out, but also they can be so beautiful. I hate to pass up a door whenever I see one – so much so that one summer my husband said no more doors!!! (I didn’t listen).
Here is my round up of favorite door upcycles:
Shelves - The first one I did with brackets to use as my bath and body display in my booths
Corner Shelf Unit Instructions found on CraftAholicolsAnonymous.net
Hall Tree - I made this one using an old door, spindles and brackets I found at a thrift store.
