    I’ve got 6 old solid wood interior doors, probably 1950’s. It seems a shame for them to go in the skip. Any ideas what I can do with them? Repurpose/upscale?

    Sell them to a reclamation dealer/shop/yard/thing.. Might not get much but you’ll know they will ultimately not simply be thrown in the landfill.
    I have visited such places purely for the purpose of buying reclaimed doors in the not to distant past.

    Take them to a door stripper, they might take them off your hands instead of skipping them. Ours came up great so we kept them. Best £120 we spent on the renovation…

    Can you get them in Morrison’s?

    The question is why are you throwing them away, probably better quality than most new doors!

    I think I’ll get them out of the skip.
    Why did I replace them? Good question. I was renovating a house which I was going to sell so I wanted all new fresh looking doors.

    I’d just chop them up for kindling.

    They would light my fire.

    Stick em on gumtree. Although to be honest the world is awash with old doors, none of which are the size you’re looking for.

    LOL 🙂 It’s times like these when I wish I was a bit more quick whited and/or intelligent.

    No they’re 4 panel ones, nothing special to look at although the rim locks are quite a nice feature.
