J’s latest repurposed table project started one day when I backed out of my driveway, drove to the stop sign and saw that our neighbor had put an old exterior door out on the curb for the trash men to pick up. Our neighbor is a landlord to several older homes, and according to his wife their basement is filled with even more scrap wood than ours!
The door was AWESOME. It was completely unpainted so it was well weathered but it was solid wood, so it wasn’t completely falling apart. And he was just going to toss it out!
But one man’s trash is another man’s treasure, so I squealed tires making a U-turn into their driveway to ask if we could have the door instead of throwing it away. Neighbor wholeheartedly agreed, and even offered to drop it off outside our garage for us since it was so heavy! SCORE! I called J and told him he might have a new project to work on, and he was excited to accept the challenge.
Three days went by and we never saw the door again.
I was getting a little worried that he had forgotten about us when one afternoon the doorbell rang and there was our neighbor delivering The Door of Weathered Wonderfulness.
J got to sawing and screwing and spackling and the result was outstanding!
Without further ado, here it is in all of it’s KICK BUTT COOLNESS:
The top of the table was the bottom of the door. He sawed it in half, built a frame for it with legs, painted the outside pieces and assembled it all back together.
Now here is my favorite part. He had some copper piping left over from our back porch makeover curtain project, so he used it to make a nice little accent bar underneath the table.
Doesn’t that look incredible?!? I love how it really makes the table unique.
Great job babe! I’m in love with this table. Now I need to figure out a place to put it before he sells it at a craft show right out from underneath me. This thing is truly one of a kind.
I found the perfect spot for it:
Happy New Year everyone!!
