When Adam and I were remodeling an old house a couple years ago, we changed one of the formerly doored off stairwells into more of a ‘pass through’ arch… which left us with an extra 100 year old door (albeit in pretty rough, painted over condition). Though I have some grand plans for the door involving some aqua spray paint, salvaged baluster spindles, the door, and my husband’s power tools transforming it into a fabulous coffee table, it hasn’t quite had it’s makeover yet. That means I get to find other great uses for this old door in the meantime… including using it as a favor display for parties!
Here’s the great news in all of this- at the architectural salvage store in Denver, I see old doors all the time, and for really cheap (like under twenty bucks cheap). Whether you share my grand plans for an old-door-into-a-coffee-table masterpiece, or just need a terrific favor display, it’s worth a trip to your local salvage place!
Anyhow, to use a door as a favor display-
1. Get an old door.
2. Cover weird parts (like holes that shouldn’t be there) with your ‘favors’ sign.
3. Hang your favors on the door with upholstery tacks.
4. Prop your door against the garden fence as a favor display.
