I have probably mentioned before, my addition to HGTV and home renovation television shows?
Really, I can not get enough. I just love seeing how the same space can be repurposed, and how with a little imagination you can create a beautiful space on limited funds. So when I stumbled on this bedroom make over on The Weir House blog, I just had to share it with you. Repurposing old second hand doors in to dramatic light fixtures? Genius! What a clever and relatively easy way to bring some drama to room. Granted the room would have to be large enough to accommodate the two doors, but if you have the room I say go for it. And if you live in a smaller space, one door would work too. And of course they can be used in other rooms as well. I love the distressed quality of the doors here and the shabby chic aesthetic. But this is truly a blank canvas DIY. There are so many options: you could paint the doors solid white and paint on gold chevron patterns and hang small black crystal chandeliers, or you could paint the door with gray and white stripes, or if you had gray walls you could paint the doors in the same shade of gray with some distressed white paint and white light fixtures, or you could use the gray and white stripes against the gray walls. As you can see the variations on this are limitless. That is test of a great DIY, how the DIY itself can be repurposed.
