More Repurposed Doors

Well, not to be all retro but though I’ve written about repurposed doors before , I have since collected these additional ideas that I wanted to share. All very simple and easy.

(Which reminds me… I still need to share mine and BC’s experience building his desk made from an old door and two industrial strength file cabinets – the opposite of simple and easy!)

    • Hey Mike, It really depends on where you live… in most places, you can find doors at architectural salvage shops. And architectural salvage shops can be found with a Google search.

      I’ve found that salvaged doors (that are basic, not super antique or decorative) often range from about $50-$100 in NY… however, there’s a guy with a warehouse on a corner on a Brooklyn neighborhood who has a huge stock of old doors (in varying conditions) that he sells for extremely competitive prices – like $25! The shop is Eddies: http://www.brownstoner.com/brownstoner/archives/2009/05/eddies_up_close.php
