Garage Door Turned Entry Shelf

Enough of the Wedding preparations already!!!!! (for now)

Would you recognize this as an old wooden garage door

It was transformed with a coat of
home-made chalk paint...

shelves and corbels left over from another project...

and a little midnight workshop action...

I created a skinny shelving unit
perfect for an entry or any narrow wall...

The addition of funky knobs for hooks, jute for pictures
a rusty bar for hanging, and wooden trim gave it detail...

The rusty bar makes a great towel bar too!

  1. Susan - this is fabulous! I moght have to try it. I've been watching some old windows at my local Habitat store that are long and skinny with 4 panes of glass. This is a GREAT idea. Love it.

  2. Absolutely fantastic! Great job.

  3. That is fantastic, Susan! This would be so great in any small room or apartment; lots of impact for a narrow piece. I know between both the apartments my kids had and have that this piece goes far with the hooks and shelves. Love it!

  4. Wow! Love it Susan! You did a wonderful job.

  5. Susan, I LOVE this garage door sidelight!!! I would've never thought to do that. I love your vision! Now to find a sidelight to make one of my own :)

  6. I love this door,, so cool how you made this. The rusty bar is a great addition.

  7. I love that! You did a great job. So very creative.

  8. I love it. Looks so nice. Fantastic idea.

  10. How very clever! I just found your blog via My Repurposed Life. Love what you did with that table top, too.


  11. Susan,

    This is such a great project! What a great way to repurpose garage doors (I never thought I would write this in a comment)! LOL!

    Thanks for linking it up on Hometalk!


  12. Awesome! This could look really good with mirrors instead of glass. Just thinking... :) Heather x
