How to Build a Bench Out of an Old Door

by JHR
1 Material
I use one old door and a 2x4 to create an adorable bench! It's simple and quick and I absolutely love it!! Perfect for your front porch or entryway. This bench takes no time at all!
I have a ton of old doors so I picked one and got started!! All you need is a door, a screwdriver, a saw and some screws.
I love that you can still see where the door knob was!!
The door had original chippy paint, one side was a minty blue and the other side was a soft mustard. I love the way the colors compliment each other.
Suggested materials:
  • Old Door, 2x4 and screws
