I came across this video of 60 instances/applications for repurposing wooden doors, mostly about upcycling into practical, useful things.  I thought, on the whole, the offering is pretty brilliant.

Personally, I’m attracted to the non-glossy examples —  but in terms of finish & effect, I bet we can all agree it’s “each to her/his own”.  Anyhow, the vid is an interesting few minutes' absorption, and feeds the imagination.

I liked the pergola :)
He missed my favorite thing to do with old hollow core doors: hinge them together to make room partitions that fold up to the wall. Don't think I have pics of any of mine from my last house, but they are hinged every other side, so they fold like a folding screen, and put wheels on them. I plan to use them in the next house to put the mirrors I like in my exercise space out of the way when I don't want them.
Like this, only start with hollow core doors, and attach one edge to the wall. Pulls out on the wheels.

Good idea, Pearl.  Thanks for adding it.  (No video covers all the ground on anything, that's a fact.)

And thanks for the Like 👍 Jocelyn.
 
Been there. Done that. Went back for more. But this time, I took this tiny ad with me:
