See that old screen door? Hanging sideways on the wall with canvases displayed in the open spaces? Yep, that’s my DIY Photo Door, and guess what?
I found it in the trash! Someone was throwing out an old door!
Now I typically don’t pick things up off the side of the road…okay, sometimes I do…but only if I know down deep in my heart that I am definitely going to do something with the item. My second rule? I must do the project soon! There’s no letting junk pile up in my garage – because I have a phobia of all things related to hoarding…but that discussion is for another time.
As soon as I saw this door, I knew I wanted to do something unique with it! I knew I could upcycle it and turn it in to a repurposed item that I would love!
Sooooooo, I sanded down the roughest spots and added some polyurethane to finish it off a bit. By I I mean my hubby – sanding, applying poly, that’s his thing.
I get more excited about the fun part:
Hanging the finished product on the wall and then displaying two of my favorite canvases inside of it!
I have ordered canvases from a variety of different places (Thank you Groupon for great deals!), but the easiest way to go for me has been to order through Shutterfly or Wal-mart. I have had really great experiences with both!
