How to make a door shelf
Transform an old door into a shelf to store all your favourite knick knacks
You will need:
- An old door
- Circular saw
- Sand paper
- Paint & Brushes
- Screw driver
- 5 x 90 degree metal L brackets
- 3 x 300 x 300 shelf kit
- Door knob
What to do
Cut the door in half using the circular saw. Be sure to measure it so that it is exactly half.
Sand the door down and paint the two panels, as well as the shelves.
Put the two door panels at a 90 degree angle and secure 5 x brackets along the back. You will need two people to do this – one to hold the panels and one to screw the brackets in.
Now measure out where you want to place your 3 x shelves.
Screw in the brackets that come with the shelf kit first. Then place the shelves in.
Secure the door knob (if this is an old door with an existing door knob you can replace it with something more decorative). *note: remove the door knob on the side that will sit against the wall so that it can sit flush against the wall.
Sit the shelf in the corner of your room and add your knick knacks!
