You don’t need to call in a dumpster or find someone to haul off your old unwanted doors. Give your old doors a second life by turning them into projects that you won’t find in a furniture store. People would die for some of these pieces and dish out the big bucks for them, but you can make them in your own home.

Here are 12 of our favorite recycled door projects.

Bench/Coat Holder
