Serendipity Strikes!


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!

Inspiring Old Stuff Made New

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! ;)
