Vintage Doors Upcycle Project

1 Material
I transformed 2 Vintage Doors and some other reclaimed wood into the ADORABLE Entry Hall Tree...Coffee Bar...Wine many possibilities!
See how this all comes together.....
I had 2 vintage doors that were the same height. I left one for the back.....
Ran the 2nd door thru the table saw, cutting it exactly in half.
I attached one half to each side, screwing them in from the back.
Cut two pieces of 2x10 redwood and used my Kreg to attach them together to create a stable base.
Screwed the base on, and gave it just a little overhang for more stability. Inspected by one of our goats, Ramses♡
Next, I attached two 2x2 strips to make a shelf support and cut 2 boards out of planed reclaimed barn wood for the shelf.
I brought it to my warehouse to paint and stain, and decided to use the legs from this chair as an extra shelf support.....
So I cut off the front legs (will use the rest of the chair for another project), and attached it to another stained piece of barn wood.
Screwed it in from the back....
Stained all the Barnwood using Kristi Kuehl Pure Home Paint and Finishes Protective Wood Stain in Chestnut. 100% Non-Toxic!! Drys in minutes with no smell....Painted with Pure Home Paints Golden Rule with Sable Protective Glaze.
Added a hanging chalkboard, and a little staging! She'said a BEAUTY, versatile and practical ♡

    I love it all!! My favorite accent is actually what you did with the chair legs!! Perfect idea...especially since I have an old chair I've been trying to figure how to upcycle. THANK YOU!!
