DIY: Turning a Door into Something Beautiful and Functional

Everyone loves old doors and windows these days. But sometimes you come across a door that's not old, but it has good lines and it's solid. 

This one has been sitting in my garage over a year, bought from a neighbor's yard sale,
 but it finally has a purpose.

Not sure what to call it, but it has chalkboards and a shelf, so it would make
 a good message center or entry piece. 

I found an old door knocker that adds character and the saying is an
 Emily Dickenson quote, "Dwell in Possibilities", that I really like.

The color is a very pale aqua, though it is hard to tell in the photographs.

I'm really pleased with the outcome and am now looking for it's new home: 
kitchen, family room or entry?
