How can I reuse or recycle old hollow core doors?
We’ve had an email from Mary asking about recycling hollow core doors.
I always see doors of one sort or another in skips around here but Mary has come up with an idea for an old one of hers – but needs a little help:
I would like to make a rattan or seagrass headboard for my king size bed by covering an old hollow core door, maybe I can use old matchstick blinds, or I’ll buy some mats, any ideas? I’d also need some kind of edging.
I really like big headboards like that so it sounds like a great idea. Mats would probably be a bit more flexible and may bend around edges – eliminating the need for separate edging – but I do like the idea of “bamboo” blinds – it seems like it would be less rough to lean against.
Any help for Mary?
Or any other ideas about what could be done with an old hollow door?
