I'm not kidding. 22 cents.
I already had the door.
It's from my pile of free doors.
One end was trimmed off to make the sides even, then I sanded and scraped. A lot. Then I dry brushed it with some ivory paint I had on hand.
I also changed out the door plate and the knob with one I had in my stash.
The one that was originally on the door looked too new. But I saved it.
The shelf on the bottom is just a board that was in the garage. It's screwed into place.
I painted and distressed it using paint I already had.
My husband hung the shelf using a 6 foot french cleat made from some scrap lumber.
This is a heavy shelf, and we thought that would be the best and safest way to hang it.
I'm trying to decide if I should put a piece of trim under the shelf. My husband says "no!". I'm thinking "probably". Just to beef it up a little.
So what cost 22 cents?
A little locking nut that went on the back of the doorknob to hold it in place.
Thanks for reading!
