30 Beautiful Images of Doors and Locks

Mighty Deals Web Banner for Design Soak

I love how doors and locks communicate such a powerful message – one of curiosity, control, and even mystery. Context is king, of course, but it’s easy to use doors for just about any kind of stock photo needs, whether an ad design for poster printing or the background for a web page.

This round-up of doors and locks are all free for commercial use. Make sure to take the time to thank the photographers for being so gracious with their work. This collection has a little of everything, from grungy to modern to ethereal. Take your pic(k) and enjoy!

Unique Recycled Skateboard Stool

These stools will make a perfect gift for skating enthusiasts and anyone one appreciates quirky design. Each one is skillfully made by craftsman in Pennsylvania by Deckstool.

Skateboarding Art by Haroshi

Fire Hydrant

I think these wooden Skateboarding Art sculptures are simply stunning. All these works of art are by Tokyo-based artist Haroshi. They are made from skateboard deck, believe it or not. The way that the objects have been carved-out of stacked plywood is very unique—and check out the colours:
