Build a Garden or Tool Shed from Recycled Doors

We are in the process of selling our townhouse and buying, what I think I will refer to as, "The Farmhouse" (although stay tuned on that one). All that to say, I anticipate the possibility of removing some doors from our new home and I think this project would be a great way to reuse them! 

Please note, if you are removing doors from your pre-1970 built home, you should absolutely test them for lead (these 3M Lead Check swabs are easy to use and don't require bringing the door anywhere or paying someone to come to your house)
