Off the Hinge: Using Old Doors In New Ways

The next time you are in the market for a way to add a rustic, earthy touch to your home, the solution may be simpler than you imagined: doors.  You heard it here first, old doors are coming back in new ways.

You can instantly add both character and texture by re-purposing a pair of distressed doors as your headboard.  Build this headboard yourself from doors that have some deeper meaning to you (for instance, using doors from your childhood home), or just hunt for some really unique doors that speak to your style and taste.

Using distressed doors as furniture adds a one of a kind quality to any room (after all, no one will have the same doors as you!) It also brings character, style, and  a natural raw quality to your space.

If you’re in the market for something a little less eclectic, you can also achieve a great earthy look by using natural wood barn doors.
