{My cutest table EVER!!}- old door turned coffee table

, , , , ,


I posted about a year ago, this awesome door that I got and didn’t know what I was going to do with it.  Well, it has been in every room of my house waiting for inspiration to strike.  I could think of tons of uses for the door – but nothing that would work for my house. 

I really didn’t want to cut up the door – but I love the door so much that by making it a coffee table for the room that I am in everyday – made sense.  And I love the character that the table brings to the room – its perfection Smile

And after…I basically just cut about 32 in off one end, cut that in half for the legs and put the rest on for the table top.  I love its simplistic rustic yuminess.  And the color – so perfect.  I cant get over it.


And of course, I left on the door knob, the deadbolt and the hinges – freaking LOVE IT!!!



Oh – how I love chippy goodness – you cant fake that!  I try, but there’s nothing like the real thing.


And check out my latest little flower vase find (free!!) – I added some mason jars and fresh flowers and it looks perfect on my new  table



Ahh – life is good!!  I love propping my feet up on my newest, most favorite piece of junk.  I could stare at it all day :)

**FYI – I assume this table was painted with lead paint, so I sanded off all the chippy flakes and coated it with a ton of poly**
