How Would You . . .

This stunning eighteenth-century Spanish double door ($12,808), available on 1st Dibs, is meant for, yes, a doorway. But if you'll remember the last How Would You, that's not how this Casa post works. Instead, I'm asking you to think outside the home-decorating box and find alternate uses for traditional home accents and furniture pieces.

How would you rework this antique Spanish door so it serves a different decorating or practical function in your home? Leave a comment below and let me know where you'd put this gorgeous door in your home.

i would split up the doors and hang them on either side of a room as wall art.

I would stand the doors against the soon to be red walls and attach three or four hooks for either frames, hats, coats or scarves. Another idea I had was splitting it so that I could place one panel horizontally on the wall in the hall and the other as a lid to a long trunk that would sit against the wall of a long wall/

Definitely as a table with glass over it for an even surface...

Split them up and use them to flank a big picture window, or great piece of art. They need to be placed on dark, rich walls.

I'd have it installed as a ceiling.

It would an amazing pocket door on gliders...that would be more unexpected than a "normal" door.

This would look amazing as a headboard.

I would cut them in half top to bottom and lay them length wise on the ground to act as table/bench legs and put another piece of cool/textured wood on top. A couple of screws and you've got a great coffee table for in front of the sofa as well as extra seating for entertaining!

I would use it as a backsplash for a fireplace's mantle.

I would use them as window treatments indoors... either as a fixed valance above the windows or on either side of a bank of windws, kinda like indoor shutters.

I'd put a piece of glass on top and use it as a dining room table or even coffee table if I had the space.

I'd put a nice piece of glass over it and make a dining room table out of it... mismatched antique china and silver would look ADORABLE on a table like that!!

I'd mount it on the wall horizontally behind by bed and use it as a stationery headboard.

I would use it next to the TV and have DVD's and other stuff behind it. It would truly be the focal point of any room.

i agree with emalove the divider idea popped into my mind too. i also have a balcony off my bedroom and those would make great doors on to it. so i could see them from my room and outside.

I'd try to find an alcove to put them in as if they were a door to somewhere or I'd put them behind a stool or bidet in a powder room, making sure the width works or having them encased on the sides with distressed wood so that it matched the style of the piece without having to alter the piece. I think it'd be a nice focal point in a small room and the rest of the room could be designed around that - without incurring ridiculous expense since powder rooms are so tiny :)

I think it would be kinda cool on the ceiling (some people put tin up) in a kitchen. glass cabinets, light color paint, and of course lots of lighting could accent this well. another option would be to cut it so that it fit as a backsplash (although I wouldn't want to cut too much of it since it is so pretty).

I think it would be interesting to use these to create a faux doorway. I can imagine a large room in which your furniture would be situated towards the middle and having these doors behind a modern orange sofa. I wish I could draw y'all a picture! It would be very interesting!

I don't know what the dimensions are but I agree with hellokittymini-I instantly thought it would make a great headboard.

beautiful doors! I agree with most of the posts here! I wouldnt want to ruin the gorgeous wood or beauty of gthem so I'd probably keep them together and put a glass top on them and use them as a dining room table. I like the headboard Idea to! Also would be pretty as a door to a guest bathroom or the master bathroom.

I think it would make a great headboard, if turned horizontal.

Make them into the pilaster part of two columns set into the wall. Flank a bookcase possibly.
