    What to do with an Old Door – Great reuse ideas!

    Aurora Mills Architectural Salvage has been in business for 12 years and still many people do not know that we are in a 4-story building.  Way down below we have literally 1000s of doors (windows, mantels, industrial, carousel parts…but that is another story) that people use for all kinds of projects.  I found this article on the Re-Nest blog that has some very beautiful door reuse ideas.  By the way, Re-Nest has lots of great ideas for sustainable home designs. I like the door chalkboard and stand-up mirror ideas but they are all great! These are just a sample from the article.

    Simply made with a 6-panel door and some magnetic chalkboard tape.  Genius!

    Another easy project!  A mirror was placed where a window had been.  Add hall tree hooks and Voila!

    The transformation of a 5-panel door!  I love the old door look mixed with the modern gift wrap panel inserts.

    These doors are massive but create instant drama.

    If you have not been in the lower levels of the store, please ask for a tour the next time you are in.  You will be amazed!  We are one of the largest salvage companies on the West Coast.

    This is just the beginning of the thousands of doors we have at Aurora Mills!
