Making an old door into a table,ikea shelf building instructions,wood projects for presents - How to DIY

10.08.2013
So I can take better pictures of our current favorite project, our new coffee table that I made from an old door I pulled out of a dumpster.
I went into all of the details about how I work my magic booty off to scrape, strip and sand old wood here. Let’s back up just one minute here, so I can explain that I actually chose the part of the doors that I wanted for the coffee table and cut it down before I got to the scraping. You can see from that before picture what I was working with, and I knew that I wanted as much of the hardware as possible to end up on my coffee table. Yes, I could have just cut the doors in half and then made two identical tables with the two doors, but I would have lost the door knob and other hardware in my finished products. Since I went with this strategy, I was able to use wood from the other end of the doors as the legs of my coffee table. I was able to pull the legs apart from the already-falling-apart-now-very-depressing-looking-part-of-an-old-door. From here I think it helps to see a few steps ahead to make sense of these first assembly steps. I really like your table design, and your step-by-step makes me think that even I could make one of these! This looks just so cool, and I am seriously considering using two of my old doors to make a Coffee Table from my front room.
Wow that is fantastic, and at least your cords are in a basket, ours are, well everywhere!!

There are a lot of ideas on making dining tables by yourself to decorate your house and one of them is making a dining table out of a door. AND, I would have needed to come up with other an alternate wood choice for the legs of my coffee table and deal with matching the finish, yada yada. The fact that it has a bottom shelf and castors makes it even better – what a fantastic job. To avoid accidents, the owner has chosen to add a piece of glass on top, to even out the surface.
You can simply use it as decoration as it is, and just hang it up on the wall, or alternatively lean it against it.
And we all have one thing in common about our bed…it’s the focal point of our bedroom!


I wanted to include this one because my oldest daughter Bree and her husband John just did one of these headboards that I will be doing a post on soon.
They did something really cool in their tutorial… they shared a pic of the flush mount hangers they used to hang their headboard… I wanted to include that because these hangers could be used to hang anything as a headboard!
Well try this creative idea from Lana Betty Designs on Pinterest…using old dresser drawers hung on the wall as an interestingA drawer storage headboard! No need for permission to pin or to feature 1 or 2 pictures with full watermarks intact that link back to the original project.
If you have an old door which you are thinking to change in your home, do not throw it away, it can be really useful to create another furniture object in your house.
The normal height of a dining table it 30 inches long so cut the legs of the table according to that size by taking the measurements.
If you wish to add glass over the wood table top, you can attach that by purchasing the leveled table glass and attaching it with the glass rubber which can be removable later on. Place the dining chairs and enjoy the food with your family on the dining table out of a door which you made by yourself. All you need to do is to be creative and assemble some pieces together to make a perfect dining table for you and your family. You can tailor the style of the headboard to your bedroom theme, or create a storage headboard to give you tons of extra space!
