Vintage Door to Display Shelf

Who: Blake Edwards
Where: Purcellville, Virginia

After moving into their 1880s farmhouse, Blake and his wife, Rebecca, found a dozen old wood doors stowed in the barn. Blake has been turning them into home decor, including this kitchen shelf, ever since. To make the shelf, he sawed the door in two and fastened the halves together with L-brackets before mounting it to the wall. "I left one doorknob on to recall the piece's history," he says.

Cost: $28
