This project has been on my list for awhile, and to say I love how this turned out is an understatement, and in just a few easy steps, you can have one too!
In all seriousness, one important thing when attempting certain craft projects is to know your limits - and cutting and measuring wood is mine, so I enlisted the services of my dad, who is very handy has a great eye to help bring projects like this to life.
Some people might laugh when I say it's a great way to re purpose an old door you have laying around, but others will totally get that and think about the door they've been saving for the right project.
This door actually came from my parents first home in Bridgewater, back in the early 80s, so when I say having an old door lying around, I really mean it. If you don't have one lying around, start asking around as I'm sure someone would be glad to make some space in their garage or barn and let you make this beautiful project, or you can find one on a buy and sell site for a reasonable price (or even free!).
To decorate, I added a nail to hang a wreath on it, though it would certainly look beautiful on it's own, or you could add lights. I especially love that this is a project that Dad and I collaborated on, using a door that actually came from our family, making it a new Christmas treasure that I look forward to using for years to come.
Now, off to bug my dad to help me build a forest of re purposed door trees!
