Old weathered door turned coffee table

home ideas 01.05.15
Hey Hometalkers! I wanted to share this coffee table that my handy husband created for me using some furniture grade wood, spindle legs, an old wooden door and some copper piping. My neighbor had this weathered old exterior door out on the curb for trash pickup. I stopped and asked if we could have it, and he hand delivered it to my basement! My husband cut it in half, framed it out and added legs, then added the copper pipe as an accent underneath. I absolutely love the way this table turned out. It's sturdy and is perfect for my son to race his cars around the "tracks". Thanks for letting me share! :) http://unskinnyboppy.blogspot.com/2011/08...

    @Betty, Loving that idea! If glass is too expensive, there is always Plexiglass...Maybe safer for a coffee table that takes abuse from grandkids and their cars...LOL
