Interior Door Turned Decorative Shelf { DIY }

When I pulled this door out of the dumpster I wasn't really sure what I was going to do with it but I knew I would use it!

 Ikea shelf brackets and a pallet plank.

don't mind the mess please.

I primed and painted the door in grey.

The grey before I dry brushed it with white.

During the "go crazy with the paint brush"

Glaze in the grooves.

And wipe off the excess. Sanded all the edges.

I added hinges from Home Depot.

I had some brackets sitting around in the garage, so I added a pallet shelf to the door.

I LOVE galvanized buckets.

Not to bad for FREE right?!?!

I might add some decorative painted details to it but for now it's good enough.

The door turned out to be just a cheap interior door but I just went with it and I now have a nice statement piece in our dining room.

The dining room is slowly coming together :)
