Make An Outdoor Buffet From An Old Door


I had repurposed this old door in hopes of a table one day... It sat in my garage for 2 years! Then another idea!!
So I painted it adding 2 coats of white flat paint...
Added some stain and rubbed a bit harder over the existing vinyl Family decal to expose it.
Enhanced the existing border to show the edge detailing...
Extra stain over the wood embellishment over the knob hole...
Had 4x4's cut to length 76" back 38" front. Loved that they were a bit rustic!
4 coats of stain with Polyurethane each...
Loving the rough cut!
Started building the frame! Adding more coats of stain/polyurethane. They are held together with 4" bolts.
Attached the door to the back of it and slats on the bottom shelf. The width of the buffet is based off of the door itself. Approx. 73"
The top is made with 2x6's with several coats of stain/polyurethane on them and attached with screws.
Added wrought iron to both sides in front attached to top and door with a plant hanger on left upper side...
Letter details...
Finished project! Added outdoor solar lights to back top of 4x4's.... It's huge and I'm very proud of it!!!
