Repurposed door to shelf : Super easy!

Remember the 'leftovers' of the broken door
I picked up from the renovation side?

After transform the main part into a table top for
Mei Mei's room, check it out here

the 'not so useful or 'ugly part'?


Seal the opened ends ... and the 'hole' 
with the technique I learned from Martha of repairing hole in wall..hehe!
(Actually I intend to throw it away but the measurement
is just too perfect for the wall

Install a few L brackets at the wall....
and tuck in....
secure it ...
Ta Daaaaa!!!!
A 'floating shelf' for Mei Mei!

Yup...a table top and a 'L" shelf...cost $0 from an old door....
just a little bit if paint, ribbon and lace and of course... an afternoon nap time!

Old frame + chick wire = Mei Mei's pin board
Mei Mei's collections of watch... :p

See you!

  1. So this shelf is hollow, and you put the brackets inside the shelf? That's what it looks like - I LOVE IT! So smart (as always) and it turned out to be a beautiful girly corner!

  2. I love the lace trim on the shelf! Great work PC, as always. And wow, you an use a manual saw! I tried it once... I failed miserably... and my husband won't let me use it anymore, haha. But one of these days, I will try again!
