I love old doors. We seem to collect them as we move over the years. Shutter style and paneled doors have so much charm and personality. While there are loads of ideas for how to use doors creatively, this idea is is really fun and practical too, especially if you really want to use them as doors.
While old doors look really cool, they don’t always fit existing doorways. Unless you get lucky and the door measurements can be modified to fit an existing frame, it isn’t always easy to work an old door into an opening. However, with the addition of some barn styled door hardware, you can hang doors on the outside of your doorway! Not only do they add a charming and artistic feature to your room, you can slide them shut for privacy. This solution also saves space — doors that swing out require a lot more room.
So, there you have it! Another fun way to use old doors! What are your favorite ideas?
