Making a Coffee Table Out of an Old Door

Are you looking for an easy, budget-friendly home craft project? Consider turning an old door into a stylish coffee table! All it takes is a little time, some common supplies and a few crafty moves.

Step 1: Gather Supplies

  • an old door or large plank of wood
  • Power drill and drill bit
  • Table saw or circular saw
  • Sandpaper
  • Metal legs (or you can get fancy and build your own!)
  • Screws
  • Stain, wood glue, and paint (optional)

Step 2: Prep the Door

Before mounting the metal legs to the door or plank, you’ll need to prep the wood. Use the table saw or circular saw to cut the door or plank down to size. Once that’s done, use the sandpaper to sand the entire surface. This will remove any splinters or rough edges and give the wood an even texture.

Step 3: Attach Hardware

Use the drill and drill bit to attach the metal legs to the door. Be sure to measure twice and drill once to ensure your coffee table can bear the weight properly. When that’s done, use the screws to screw the metal legs in securely.

Step 4: Decorate and Style

Once assembled, it’s time for you to make your old door really stand out. This is the fun part! Apply wood glue, paint, or any other design element to make your table unique. You may also choose to apply stains for a classic, rustic look. Feel free to get creative, the possibilities are endless!

Step 5: Enjoy

Take a step back and admire your new, stylish DIY-coffee table! All that’s left to do is enjoy and show off your masterpiece.

Making a coffee table out of an old door is an easy and enjoyable home-craft project. All it takes is a little time and some simple tools, and soon you’ll have a one-of-a-kind piece of furniture in your home!
