I made a table out of a door! Woohoo! It’s been sitting n my garage awaiting my attention for months.
We cut about 8 inches off of the bottom of the door. It had a kick plate on it that was kind of nasty. Also, it was too long for our dining room area so chopping it down was the way to go. I painted the cut edge that green. Because…green. I don’t know why, I guess I liked it with the cherry color of the door. Also, I love green.
Those pretty legs are from an old table that I took apart. It had a damaged top . Aren’t they shapely?
Also, my husband asked me to take hinges off. At first I didn’t want to because they are charming and quirky but he wisely pointed out that they were also sticking up out of a table and we would probably hurt ourselves on them. Excellent point. Off they came. Now I have cute brass hinges to play with. I wonder what they will want to be.
I left these as is. There are two.
Yay! I broke it in with a bowl of coconut milk ice cream.
I realize that I love to make things into things they were not originally intended to be. I recommend it highly.
