I love a charming garden project. Something creative and a bit unexpected, that has all the attributes of good art with all the care and concern of an aged and weathered object. So comes our next garden project ideas for our readers… repurposed door projects for the garden. All these old door ideas can be done with either repurposed or even new doors, but I do suggest visiting your local architectural salvage company, or even ReStore from Habitat for Humanity to find old doors with character. (And, it’s recycling, so it’s better for the earth!)

 

 

Our first two inspiring photos comes from ‘Green Wedding Shoes‘. While you may not be planning a wedding, this old door table idea can’t be beat for charm – who wouldn’t want to eat a summer breakfast on a table like this?

Repurposed door projects

 

From ‘Pinterest‘, this old door idea turned potting bench is a bit brilliant, and a bit romantic. Her husband made this for her!

 

From ‘Finding Home‘, check out this vintage door bar station! I want this for my patio! Great job Laura! (Read the tutorial!)

While this next pic of this screen door potting bench is inspirational, it could easily be done as a DIY project! This clever old door idea is from Hymns and Verses.

From ‘Diana Wearing‘, this old door fence made from recycled shutters is amazing! Nothing about this looks like anything but good garden art!

From Pinterest, this old door painted this incredible color simply has a window box attached to the front, and is used as art in the garden. I am planning to do something like this to fill an empty corner!

This garden bench from ‘BHG‘ is using a newer door as the base… but you could make this idea as modern or as vintage as you wanted!
