Don’t you just love when things fall in your lap at just the right time? My work is moving offices soon and they were cleaning out the warehouse this week – and had some old doors they were getting rid of. I was able to snag this solid wood, glass paneled one that I have some ideas for as a headboard or dining table. Props to Becky for tipping me off on this great find, and to Ben for helping me squeeze it into my little hatchback!
I think I’ve looked at every last picture in the expanse of the internet about how to re-use old doors, old tin ceiling tiles, and old scrap wood for headboards and coffee tables! Plenty of great ideas out there! Here’s some of the ones I found most inspiring:
Pretty sure my favorite headboard idea here is the awesome stained glass window. Although for the hefty prices I saw at the salvage yard – that one will have to wait for another day. For now, I am thinking I like the headboard idea with the wood planks that say “love” on them.. or perhaps the fireplace mantle idea if I can find a good deal on a mantle.
I’m especially loving the idea of mixing an old door and ceiling tiles for a coffee table too. Laying the tiles into the panels of the door I think would look pretty fabulous. I really love the color and worn texture of the teal coffee table above – may do something similar to that color.
We will be taking a trip back to the salvage yard this weekend to pick up all the goods and get crackin! And yes, I could not decide whether I wanted to do a coffee table or a headboard – so for now, I am just planning to do both! ;)
