I wanted a bookcase for my living room, not necessarily for books though. I wanted it to display my pottery collection. I had another requirement, it had to be T*A*L*L, taller than the average store bought bookcase. Oh, and another requirement, it had to have character. So there was just one thing to do. . . build it ourselves! And of course we used our favorite building material, an old door.
The sides are made from a door cut down the center.
I wanted the shelves to be bulky, so we used stair treads. The crown molding is actually an expensive, fancy baseboard turned upside-down. And the feet came off of a coffee table from the thrift store.
Now that's what we call re-purposing!!!!
