    New storage

    Had a bunch of old wood trim from my son's farm house remodel so thought I'd put some of it to use.
    I wanted the sliding barn door hardware, but couldn't afford to buy it, so I made it.
    I cut a hole in the interior wall and inserted the shelf unit and added door and light.

    Love barn doors - very clever way to squeeze out more storage.

    You are very creative and talented! If I cut a hole in the wall - well, I'd just have a hole in the wall. LOL

    Glad to see someone use old wood to make something so pretty and useable at the same time

    Talented, indeed. I think you've done a splendid job of working with the wood and the hardware is terrific.

    My mother had shallow cabinets built on an interior wall when the home was remodeled in the late 1940's. The bathroom wasn't large enough to have 10-12 inch projections on one particular wall, so with the use of the space between the studs and cabinets with doors only projecting 4 inches in the room we had functional space for towels and the like. I love seeing non-traditional uses of space and materials. Thanks for sharing!!

    What a neat idea! The trim in my old FH was loaded with paint and so dry that it cracked when we tried to take it off. Did manage to get enough 3-4' pieces so I can attach the old porcelain door knobs onto. Will be keepsake pieces for the kids.

    Quilting is like parenting - you need patience, patience and more patience AND I WANT IT NOW!

    Thanks for the compliments.
    The unit is deeper than it appears, about 7" into the wall. It is a center load bearing wall and is extra thick.
