Knock, Knock...Part 2

The weather has finally "cooled" off here in Nebraska. It's actually cool and rainy today and feels good for a change. My grass is ever so thankful. LOL

Just a REMINDER that the CSN Stores $40 gift certificate giveaway ends tonight! So sign up if you haven't yet! I'll announce the winner tomorrow. :)

I wanted to share another blast from the past project! In our basement, we have a partly unfinished room. To be honest that was one of the selling points of this house for us. LOL So I can have a craft room and not have to worry about spilling paint, sanding, etc...This room is also the entrance from our basement garage. This was not a fun site to see everyday when coming into our home. This was a very bad day in craft room land when I took this picture. (You crafters out there know how it is...)


So I scored like 10 old doors for $10 from my cousin! They were sitting out in our shed when I came up with the idea of making a "wall" out of them. My hubby was more than happy to free up a little space in his shed and began assembling.


I ended up painting the doors "bread basket" from Pittsburgh paints. Then I added some dark walnut stain for some richness. I purposely left the door knobs and hinges.

Now this wall is one of our favorite things in our house! We have a separate space for our mudroom area and we don't have to see MY mess as we enter our home on a daily basis. Much cheaper than putting up drywall!



I hope you all have a wonderful evening! I'll be back tomorrow with a winner!

Update:the giveaway has ended. Thanks!

  1. I loved it when you first posted it and I love even more now. We bought a bunch of screen doors and closed in the south end of our patio. Thanks for sharing your idea with us. Opened my eyes to the possibilities!

  5. I love how the doors turned out, but how do you have them attached to the ceiling? I think it's a great idea.
