This a plain door that hasn’t been used, meaning there are no handles or hinges to remove and disguise for my home decor project.
Here’s our door that will used to make the door hall tree.
I hate spending money on items that I feel I could build myself More
I should state that I am a bachelor and this project is geared towards keeping the pad looking good until I get married then I guess I might have to switch my home decor style up a bit (a lot!) Ok so enough of my mindless rambling. Let’s start our door project. Getting the storage box started is paramount, just as a heads up this part of the project is going to take the longest also you’re going to need some pieces of pine.
- Measure the width of the door and construct a frame that should look like a bench. Attach this to the base of the door. (keep your door on a flat surface for easier installation).
- Now we need to build the base of the box, again cut a 1/4 inch piece of wood and attach it to another 36″ piece then insert it between the frame and secure with your nail gun.
- The compartments – Measure the width of the space inside of the box and cut three pieces of wood that would separate the spaces evenly and attach them securely.
It’s time to flip our door up and paint, this is a classic home decorating item so it’s going to be painted a soft teal blue to complement my brown accents that will now be installed since the paint is dry. I used 4 coat hangers and a couple of brackets for a shelf at the top, the shelf I stained a dark brown for more contrast. As you can see it looks really good and the door to nowhere is useful again!
