Make a Coffee Table Out of an Old Door!

Want to add some unique style to a room in your home? Try turning an old door into an awesome coffee table! It doesn’t involve too much effort and you’ll end up with a stylish conversation piece. Here’s a guide on how to make your own coffee table out of a door:

1. Gather Your Supplies

Before you get started, make sure you have everything you need:

  • Old door
  • Table saw
  • Drill
  • Hinges
  • Sandpaper
  • Stain/paint
  • Polyurethane
  • Wood glue
  • Table legs

2. Cut the Door

Using your table saw, cut the door down to the desired length and width. Make sure to measure twice and cut once!

3. Sand the Door

Take the door outside and begin sanding it until the surface is smooth. You may need to use various grits of sandpaper.

4. Stain/Paint

Once the door is smooth and dust-free, you can begin staining/painting it. Start from the center and work your way out.

5. Attach the Legs

Attach a pair of hinges to the underside of the door using the drill. This will allow you to fold the table legs down when the table is not in use.

6. Attach the Legs to the Door

Attach the legs to the underside of the door using wood glue and nails. Make sure to reinforce the attachment by adding extra nails along the edges.

7. Polyurethane

Once everything is in place, apply a few coats of polyurethane to the door. This will protect the wood and keep it looking great for years to come.

And You’re Done!

You’ve now completed your new coffee table made from an old door! This piece of furniture is sure to be the talk of your home and show off your crafty skills. Enjoy!
