Free Cabinet Door Becomes an Entryway Table

This cabinet door was a find from the “Free” section of Craigslist.  When Cara of Craft Dictator saw it, she had an “Aha!” moment, and realized it would make a great tabletop.

Cara had some excellent help from her mom on this project.  Her mom built a simple frame to serve as a base for the cabinet door tabletop.  They added spindles for legs.  The table was painted black, with the addition of white stripes to create a chevron patterned top.  Cara placed the table in her entry–doesn’t it look terrific?

Cabinet Door Floor Desk

You may remember the adorable snack tray that Larissa from The House on Harrison made from an old, water-damaged cabinet door she found curbside. Well, she’s back again with another fabulous repurpose for one of the doors!

This time around Larissa was inspired to create a floor desk as a special gift for her niece’s first birthday. Larissa used scrap wood for the frame and created a chalkboard top complete with a little routered lip to hold the chalk. Larissa is seriously the queen of cute!
