Salvaged Door Coffee Table

Repurpose old door to make a table!
We all have some useless old stuff at home. The things lie and take place in your room, basement or attic until the day you stumble upon them and decide to throw them away. And that’s the moment when the red light should appear in your head to motivate you to find a new purpose to old stuff. At least, this is what happens to me every time I want to get rid of something.

Since you appreciated Corner Door-Shelf I presented some time ago I thought I’d enjoy another door repurposed project called Salvaged Door Coffee Table. Rita and Can of This Sorta Old Life, say it’s the greenest project they’ve ever made. The couple created the wooden, rustic table to add elegance to their home.

Antique doors are repurposed for kitchen cabinetry, shelves and other house decoration. Do you think it would be cool to use old doors as a wall ? Let us know what you think.

Check out the tutorial on This Sorta Old Life.

What you need:


  • Circular saw
  • Clamp down straight edge
  • Pocket hole jig
  • Drill
  • Wood glue
  • Brush on polyurethane
  • Disposable foam brush
  • Wood screws
  • Pocket joint screws
  • Casters

Supplies / ingredients:

  • Door

    :) it is just as fun to inspire others as being inspired by others. When we decided to move coffee table in to our hallway, we added angle irons and a wood balk to make it more durabble to sit on. And i have planned to make seat cushions too. It is difficult to explain how i’m gonna do it but i will add a picture when it is done. ;)
