I love the chippy pink paint of this door - it makes the most amazing headboard!
This week, as the reclaimed rustic item, I'm featuring old doors. They really are so versatile and so gorgeous - especially when they're old, painted, and chipping. Here are a few different uses for different types of old doors, as well as a project involving reclaimed door panels that I've been working on.

These gorgeous old doors make for a pretty headboard! Keeping the original sea foam coloured paint really brings the whole room together.

This has been one of my favourite tear-outs from an old Country Living magazine for sooo long! I love absolutely everything about it; the ironstone collections, the spice jars, the shelving and especially, the painted door. How handy is that?

This old door has been transformed into a little bench, perfect for a mud room or hallway.
(side note - - love the flea market sign in the background!)

And finally, my projects. I took old door panels that were white, cleaned them off and stenciled things onto them. It's a super easy project (unless you're planning on hand cutting the custom stencils like I did)!

This one is my favourite - it's in my kitchen. I just love how it has the trim detail around the edge making a sort of frame around the stenciling.
