Door Shelf

Posted on Updated on

For our very first post of 2014, we decided to do one that has been on our Pinterest board for a long time. It’s not that it was difficult, it’s that we couldn’t quite find the right old door for our door shelf project until…

…my friend Sporty Spice put this little guy up for sale on our local trade and barter site.


We paid Sporty $15 bucks for this solid door and started the transformation.


We wiped it down and painted it white.



I wanted it to look old and a little beat up, so I painted it lightly.


Papa measured and cut the door in half.


Β (That’s the back.)


Papa is very helpful. πŸ™‚

Read: I could not do any of this stuff with out Papa.




Papa used his new nail gun to set the sides in place.

It scares me. Like, as much as the nail gun scares me.

Later on, he’ll use the drill to make sure that it’s secure.


Next, he cut the shelves.


He’s amazing.


He made braces and secured the shelves.

We carried it upstairs. I clapped and jumped up and down.

This is where I keep tea.


A treasured gift from my (now gluten free) Pixie friend.


Our door shelf happily resides in the corner of our dining room.


One pin down and 74 to go.

It’s going to be another productive busy fun summer!
