DIY project: How to repurpose a door into shelves

When is a door not a door? There's much more to consider than just transforming the colour of the furniture, you can also transform its use... just make sure you have a love of carpentry, if not a friend who is good at it.

Materials

  • 1 x old four-panelled door
  • Approx 3 lengths of 25mm thick timber
  • 1 x 750ml Interior Wood Primer & Undercoat (White & Light Tones)
  • 1 x 750ml Wevet® No.273 Estate® Eggshell
  • 1 x Farrow & Ball 2" Paint Brush
  • 1 x Sheet of each 80 and 120 Grit Sandpaper



Instructions

1
Create a detailed drawing of how you want to customize your door, get cracking, or supply it to your carpenter friend (possibly with a slice of homemade cake) and leave them to it!

2 A few days later your new doorshelves will be delivered, so carry out the preparation.

3 Apply primer & undercoat to the chest.

4 Paint 2 coats of Wevet to your doorshelves, leaving to dry for a minimum of 4 hours between coats (ideally leave overnight to completely harden).

5 Fix in place and style open shelves with books, photos and trinkets.
