Knock, Knock! How to ReUse a Door

Did you know you can create a masterpiece from a simple door? If you want a unique statement piece, a door is a great foundation for a piece of art, headboard, table, message center and room divider. Show off your talents by thinking outside the box…and outside the door frame!

You may not have a spare door around the house, but ReStore does. We have a vast selection of interior, exterior, storm and closet doors. A six-panel hollow-core door is only $15! We also sell the tools and other materials you need.

For this first project, no tools are required. Simply lean a door against a wall, and use it as a canvas! Paint it, adorn it with wallpaper or better yet, display your child’s artwork! Great way to pin up art without damaging the wall.

With a little elbow grease, you can have a one-of-a-kind headboard. ReStore has the sandpaper and paint you need for either a weathered or finished look.

Our volunteers, George Caceres and Benjamin Rahimi, hold a contender for this distinct headboard.

Need a new table?  We have some innovative solutions.

Benjamin models a perfect closet door which you can turn into this gorgeous side table.

And with some table legs, you can create a focal point for the living room.

Message centers are helpful for all households. You can’t use an iPhone for everything! Some chalkboard paint is all you need.

For the ultimate conversation piece, a room divider is ideal.

You can get three interior doors and produce this!
