How to Turn an Old Door into a Bookshelf

Re -purpose an old wood door into a charming bookshelf for your home. If you looked in most furniture stores these days you have already seen the obscene prices they are charging for the what they want you to buy. On top of the high prices, the selection is normally pretty limited. This often leads DIYers to come up with alternatives as a way to get what they want. This DIY project is good example, re-purposing an old wooden door and turning it in an amazing piece of furniture.

How to Turn an Old Door into a Bookshelf

This Do It Yourself project was posted and shared on It’s a Shabby Thing. The project is unique in that it started with an old door and in a short time it became a new book shelf that is the perfect finishing touch any room remodeling. Everything that is needed to complete the project can easily be gotten from almost any supply or hardware store. A nice old wood door gets a fresh new life instead of taking up room at the dump. I love that they worked the door knob and keyhole into the bookshelf.
