This month, you can find incredibly affordable doors of all shapes and sizes at Community Forklift.

Modern and vintage doors are 50% off until the end of July!

This means that salvaged doors are the perfect material for your next low-budget, DIY, home-beautification project. Get inspired by these projects we found in the goldmine of upcycling ideas that is Pinterest, and then find all the affordable materials you need at the ‘Lift!

Follow Brent Paape’s instructions on how to upcycle a salvaged door into a charming coffee table.
