I don’t know about y’all but I have a real love for old doors.
We have been renovating our small kitchen and I knew that I wanted to include
one of our old doors. This is one that has been sitting
in the corner of the shop for a while. One day, it just hit me, no, not the door, an idea:)
I suggested to Honey, that we cut it in half and use the top to make it a spice rack and
the bottom as a back to our prep table! First thing to remember when I am taking you
through the steps, I try to capture each step with my camera. But, my Honey
hasn’t fully grasped the blogging thing! If, I wander off for a second to do something else,
he doesn’t always remember to wait till I get back:)
Here is the old door before we cut it.
Honey, trying to lay out the boards to see which way he wants to do this!
Plan decided on, so he begins by nailing a couple of boards
at the top and bottom.
Honey is screwing the two boards to the wall.
His plan was for the them to basically snap together, remember the
two he nailed, going across? Should fit like a glove:)
Fit like a glove, it does!! He is so good:)
Now, time for installing a back for the spice rack. He nailed the
old ceiling board directly to the wall.
Remember me telling you
that there may be a step that I missed? He installed the three small shelves
and the one on the top without me:(
I really like having the bottom of the door
behind our prep table. It should keep things
from falling off the back, hopefully!
I am so proud of this spice rack!
No telling how old the door is and
the ceiling boards came out of the old Roff
lumber yard. They too, are quiet old.
Something else given new life:)
