I had another old door laying around that wasn’t being used for anything, so since my last door turned coffee table got some sweet comments/emails, I decided to make one to sell.

This door was smaller, not quite as wide as mine, but it still made a perfect little table, and I love how it had a dark stain already that I could work with.

Before…I just cut off about 32 inches from the end, cut that in half to have about 16 in sides.  Then I decided to leave the old cream paint as is and use that for the under side of the table and the dark stained part I painted a teal color.


All chopped up and ready to paint.  I taped off the hinges as well as the spot where the door knob used to be.


After, I used my cabinet scrapers to heavily distress the entire door.  I love the way it turned, it looks like the paint has chipped off over the years.


And after…sealed with a few coats of poly (both sides) and is ready to sell. 


I love where the raw wood is where the door knob plate used to be



This is the cut side of the door, I just rubbed a little stain on it to make it look more aged.
