One of the joys of having a three year old daughter is that we can go to summer Fayre's and Galas. If you don't have a child in tow, you can feel a bit of a fraud. I am genuinely a big fan of these very English events and I love the traditional games such as Hook-a-Duck and Splat the Rat. During the summer holidays we went to a few of these community events. So, where is the connection to doors you may be wondering? A few weeks ago we went to a charity gala and there was an interesting use of an old door. Somebody had decided to cut a large hole out of the centre of the door and place a toilet seat over the hole. This was an interesting version of Frog in the Bog. The challenge was to throw a frog through the centre of the toilet seat. This proved a popular game for my daughter and nephew as well as many other children that were there. Whilst attempting to take a discreet photo of the door I was forced to explain that I wanted to share this unusual use of a door on our blog. The stallholder was a little bemused, but happy to share his unusual construction.
I am always interested in finding out new uses for doors and I would much rather see an old door being re-used for a new purpose than being thrown away or burnt on a fire.
At Doorsan we sell a wide range of modern and traditional style doors. Maybe we should consider compiling a list of possible uses for old doors for customers who are replacing their old doors. I am sure there are some great practical and humorous uses for doors that have reached the end of their life.
Kershaw's Doors often have slight seconds doors or ex-display doors so if you need a low cost door for any reason please give us a call.
