Take it off its hinges and make it into a wall tree/mud bench!!
Do you remember when I went to Habitat for Humanity and got a few goodies and one of those goodies was a door?
Well I turned that door into this...
You can barley recognize that its the same door huh?!? I have to admit I am pretty proud of this masterpiece but I could not have done it with out my mom and grandpa!
The general idea was my moms and my grandpa helped me make the shelf and bench.
What I used to make this:
Door - Habitat for Humanity $4
Hooks - Hobby Lobby $3
Orange paint - Lowes $13 for a quart (I also used this paint for a few other projects so my paint want going to waste)
Glaze - Lowes $8
Bench and Shelf - Handmade by my Grandpa
The steps to make this are pretty simple and it didn't take long to make at all!
First I simply cleaned it up the door with a damp wash cloth and any dirt off. Since my Grandpa made me the bench and shelf so I didn't have to clean those (sorry I don't have any step on how to make it or anything)
I then painted them all orange (you could use whatever color you want) and let it dry and then added the glaze and randomly painted/rubbed it on.
The next day when all the pieces were dry I screwed on the hooks and nailed the shelf on to the top portion of the door. I left the bench separate so that I could move it if needed for extra seating in my little apartment.
Thats all you have to do to make one of your own! Pretty cool right?!
I love it! It make a great statement in my apartment and fits perfectly in my entryway!
Also I am so happy to say I am linking up with The Shine Project for the first time ever today!! She has a link up party goin on for any home re-do makeovers! So you should definitely go and check out everyones amazing projects or join in!!
