Here Is Our Finished Up-Cycled Antique Door Into A Coffee Table

Here Is Our Finished Up-Cycled Antique Door Into A Coffee Table

Hi Friends! Here is our FINISHED Up-cycled coffee table! Our client initially wanted the coffee table to be painted and with a distressed finish. This was partially due to the fact that they wanted to add a little COLOR to their living room, and also partially because we all honestly thought that the boards were going to be a bit DAMAGED since the door had been sitting in an old home for quite some time.

But once we took the door apart, and saw that it was actually old, TONGUE and GROOVE PINE FLOOR BOARDS, we had an IDEA! We sent the boards through the planer, and sanded and cleaned them up. Then WE COULD NOT BELIEVE OUR EYES! These boards were STUNNING! So…CHANGE OF PLANS! STAINING it was! Our client agreed that we simply could not cover up all of this BEAUTIFUL wood with paint!Continue reading

We Are Up-Cycling This Old Door Into A Coffee Table

We Are Up-Cycling This Old Door Into A Coffee Table

Hi Friends! This is our NEWEST Up-Cycling project! This old door was dropped off to us yesterday by a client. It came from a her husband’s home that he grew up in as a child. So, it is a SENTIMENTAL piece for their family. Since they no longer needed it to be used as a door, they asked if we could use it to make a COFFEE TABLE. That way, he would still have a piece of his OLD home, in his NEW home. 

Well, we jumped all over this OPPORTUNITY! Y’all know how much we LOVE to take old pieces, and turn them into something NEW! It is such a PASSION of ours to have the opportunity to breathe NEW LIFE INTO OLD PIECES. Especially, when they are sentimental and have a heartfelt meaning behind them! 

So, KEEP AN EYE OUT for pictures of our finished product. We PROMISE…it will be UNRECOGNIZABLE!

It gives it a nice fresh, clean look. COMPLETE PERFECTION!Continue reading
