Old Door Message Center

Turn old door into the information center!
You can change door into Table or Shelf. We showed you both ways some time ago. This tutorial explains how to create a Message Center. The place that helps you communicate with your family in an old, traditional way, by leaving a handwritten messages. It is a nice change in times of smartphones, when people handle everything by texting.

Claire, who's running The Rustic Pig blog, decided to use an old door with many little windows as a stylish board to contact with the rest of her family. She added some photos of her, her husband and sons. Photos and inscription “Love” on top differs it from the formal planning board. By attaching hangers, she added another use of this center. It’s a great idea if you want to combine usable and decorative features.
