Old pickets and window frames make a potting bench and stools.  A cabinet door with hooks hold purses.  Hardware screen lamps.  Fresh egg sign made from a piece of delaminated headboard.  An old post and lazy susan make a spinner.  Fabric swatches recovered the antique rocker seat.
Cabinet doors become chalkboards.  Add an old hymn rack from a church pew for a brochure holder or an upside down bin pull for a chalk and eraser holder.
Jewelry displays made from recycled cabinet doors, check wire and hardware cloth.  Ribbon covers and old lampshade frame.  Tree branches mounted in recycled stool seats make a jewelry tree.
Tiered display made from recycled floor lamp and cabinet doors.

My sister and I did a craft show with our handmade items.  I built all our unique display pieces from recycled materials.  Doors with hooks and shelves are great displays.  Cabinet doors become chalkboards, frames with hardware screen or chicken wire become jewelry displays.  Old posts with lazy susans become spinners.  Pickets become potting benches and stools.  I even used the rusty staples I pulled from the picket fence when I dismantled it to make the "S" hooks for the jewelry displays.
