Keep all your notes, memos and to-do lists easily insight with a new pin board. Cover your front door panels with fabric to pin to the board or paint with chalk board paint to write and erase as you wish.

Is your garden in need of a re-fresh? Why not decorate your front door and re-purpose it as a new garden gate? If you are repainting, be sure to treat the door with exterior paint and wood care to prevent damage from weathering. Whilst fixing up your garden, why not invest in a new back door in Somerset and improve the whole garden aesthetic.

If your front door has a flat surface, it can be easily converted into a new office desk. Add your own custom legs or attach it to the wall for a modern, floating effect.


Due to the sturdy frame and typical panelling décor, old front doors can make an excellent headboard. Simply turn the door on its horizontal side and voila! Your old door is now your new, vintage style bed board.
