Idea for old door (picture)

lydia1959June 24, 2007

This was at a cottage we stayed in this week. An old chippy door with a chalkboard where the glass had been. Hanging on the wall with hinges.

Excellent idea. You can buy chalkboard paint at either craftstores or Walmart.

Nice, I'd add a pice of tin on bottom for magnets.

Now this is a good idea. I have a couple old doors my DHs friend gave me. Really old,maybe Eastlake? but I'm going to have to fill in cracks and paint it,it's in sad shape otherwise I'd leave it natural. I was going to try to get stained glass for the glass part,but a chalkboard would be a much better solution! Cheaper,too,and don't have to worry about it breaking! I'm going to be using the door as the door to my new pantry in the kitchen. Thanks for sharing!!
