Coffee Tables And Old Doors….

If I won the lottery, I would buy a storefront on Main Street in downtown Rochester.   I would buy beat up furniture, give it a fresh look with some cool finishes, and display it in my store window, for sale.   I would also scoop up any old doors I saw, and have my buddy carpenter Jon Rope build it into a custom table, then I’d display those for sale as well.  I think they’d sell quick –

Look, even an old garage door was used –

(this is a moment of being side-tracked…..  I couldn’t get over these unique coffee tables that I stumbled over in my search for old door tables) –

And old doors that didn’t WANT to be turned into tables –

Which led me to this fun site – ,  a clearinghouses of junking projects and ideas, sorted by folder tab –

Now, where was I?

    cant figure out what site this is and how you find it!
    you probably know my favorites are the first photo,
    aged with white and 2nd is the lime green door.
    What’s your fav?

    • I gotta say I love that lime green one – the color makes it my fav…. I like the idea of that big gigantic garage door one too – that would be quite cool in a big space…. I love that beat up weathered looking close up just above the green one – do you think thats the same table as #1?

  5. Can you tell me the process of making a table? My brother just moved out of a home and gave me a door that I’m dying to make a table with but I’m not sure what steps to take.
    Thanks for sharing!

    • Check your area and see if you have a Restore (Habitat for Humanity) local to you – they carry alot of of used building supplies for not bad prices- maybe you can find some old doors that way. or check craigslist.
