Upcycling idea: Old Door to Corner stand

This is a quick post on yet another upcycling home project of mine.  Unfortunately, I just have one “before” picture as I did this make over quite sometime ago.

The pair of old narrow doors had a square grill pattern that seemed to work perfectly for a corner stand.



 Most fascinated by the ‘squares’ in them,  I decided to join the two doors in a “V” shape so that it would fit in any corner of the room.  The worn out edges on the top and bottom were chopped off and smoothened to give it a new ‘even’ look.

While the carpenter did a great job, the painter did better.   The old paint was scraped off as much as possible and then coated with uniformly with putty several times over to give it a really smooth finish.  It was then painted a nice bright white.  I got lots of hooks placed on the sides and at the bottom of each ‘section’ for hanging various kinds of knick knacks.

It now adorns a corner in room making it look really cheery and colorful.
