I've got a joke for ya. When is a door not a door? When it's ajar! Also? When it's an awesome DIY coffee table! Read on to see how a $10 door became this fantastically upcycled piece of furniture.
For 10 bucks, Cane and Rita picked up this 5-panel door. They knew they needed 3 panels for the tabletop and 1 for each side.
Their blog post takes you through the build step-by-step, including deconstructing the old door, adding a shelf and casters, and sealing the perfectly chipping paint. They even admit what they'd do differently if they had to do it all over again.
From the looks of it, I wouldn't change much!
Get the full how-to with a budget breakdown on their blog, This (sorta) Old Life.
