Have you recently purchased a brand new (Atlas, we hope) garage door, and wondering what you should do with your old door? We’ve put together a list of different ways to reuse your old garage doors. All it takes is a little creative imagination.

1)    Kitchen Island

This garage door was taken apart, sanded and repainted, to achieve a ‘vintage’ look, and then revamped into a unique kitchen island! We absolutely love how the windows were used in this retro style piece!

2)    Headboards

Finding the perfect headboard can sometimes be a challenge, so why not re purpose your old garage door and turn it into an awesome headboard? This garage door was disassembled and split into different panels. This is an awesome weekend project that can easily be customized to suit any style of bedroom!

3) Entrance Table  

This is a brilliant way to reinvent one section of your garage door, especially if it has windows! Use one part of the door, and turn it into an entrance table for your home!

4)    Outside bench

Using a panel from your old garage door, make a bench for your front porch or backyard! Add some throw cushions, (to match the exterior of your home) along with a small table, and this can be a great spot to hang out in the summer!

5)    Kitchen Table

This may sound crazy, but you can absolutely convert your old garage into a brand new kitchen table! Measure the door to the correct size of the table you need, cut it, and paint it to match the rest of your kitchen! Add a layer of laminate paint for a shiny look and then sit back, and enjoy your meal on your unique new table! Consider adding a piece of glass overtop the table, to enhance the look!
