Old Doors Rock My World: A Unique Outdoor Table

It’s funny…I had written a previous post about decorating with old doors very early on in my blogging days and I have gotten the most hits on it! So funny! I never would have thought that, but it seems that all of you have an intense love for old doors just like I do. I love their character, their charm and their possibilities.
I had been pondering what to do about an outdoor table since spring had began as I was in need of something to use for family bar-b-ques and such. Not to mention a place to sit, read and for the kids to color and so on…we just didn’t have the extra funds this summer to spend for an outdoor dining set so my gears began to churn and burn. I can usually think us a clever way to get what I want and on a dirt cheap budget. I can think outside of the box most times. I began to consider my love of old doors and recently was given one by a friend.
Here is the door:
It was full of dust, dirt and cobwebs when I got it out of the barn.  It was an oldie, but goodie.
I had the thought that perhaps this old door would make a cool table.
I had made a door desk in college and my one friend still laughs at me about this.  I thought it was cool then and I feel the same way today.
I found these inspiration photos which also helped
 cement my ideas:
A table made from an old barn door!!!

L-O-V-E!!!
(dirtcheapdecoratingdivas.blogspot.com)
I had the door.  Now I just needed four chairs.  Freecycle to the rescue!  Look what I found:
Works for me.
I put them together, added paint and hard work and here is how it all turned out:

 

 

Added some subway art to the panels with some summer words!

 

Some road side wild flowers make it so pretty

 

Ikea sawhorses from college…man, I feel old!
By the way, this was another “using what I had” opportunity!

 

A close up of the panels

 

I hand stenciled these

 

 

I adore turquoise and red together

 

So happy my table is finally ready!

 

 

I left the door knob on for some extra charm

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

This was a fun and thrifty project – all I needed to purchase was the red spray paint.
Here’s to a future of ice cold lemonades in the front yard!

  65. Hi Jen!
    Thanks for following me! You’re gonna laugh, but the red I used for the chair is the Walmart brand gloss red spray paint – at less than $2 a can it worked very well!
    Stacey :o)

  78. I am IN LOVE!! Thanks for sharing your table! I am now in search of sawhorses or some plans to build some. I have a great old door and chairs…just need the base. Thanks for the great idea!

  79. You did a fantastic job. The colors look absolutely beautiful together!

  80. I, too, adore old doors as well as old window panes, mantles…well, anything old & re-usable! They make wonderful statements as well as beautifying a space. Thank you for sharing!
    Your door came out amazing & your color combo is one of my fav’s!

  81. Wow, I’m so loving this table! You did an awesome job, and the color combo is fabulous! I was wondering about those sawhorses, they’re perfect…don’t worry, I had IKEA furniure in college, too:) I was going to invite you to my new Club G.W. with Charm Bracelet Diva Party going on right now but after seeing all the parties you join maybe you don’t need another one wink-wink? But if you’re game I’d love to have you!

  82. This came out so charming! I absolutely love it! Fantastic color- fantastic details and so sweet!! Well done! Thanks for sharing this at FNF :)

  83. While I love your door turned table, I was most caught by your profile. I, too, am a therapist (now SAHM but teach at the college level part time) and my hubby is employed full-time at a church – altho he does all things media.

    Just wanted to say and that I really like your door! :)

  84. Real Talent! This is absolutely amazing and I wish I had a big enough backyard to completely copy you and make one for myself. The colors, the stencils, the rustic quality-perfect!

  101. This is a great idea, Stacey. I am thinking it would make a great outdoor table for my classroom’s patio if it is REALLY sturdy. Did you nail the door onto the sawhorses??? Thanks.
    Christie

  102. That is crazy cute there girl! How fun and colorful. Thanks for sharing Stacey at my newbie party. Have fun!~

  108. This is awesome! I pinned it immediately last week when I first saw it. I really do love everything about it. I would love it if you would come link it up to the crafty link party I just started over at http://linesacrossmyface.blogspot.com
    :)Rachel

  109. This is my first time stopping by. I was led here by Tatertots and Jello and I just have to say your door table is now at the top of my list of things to try to recreate! It’s phenomenal! Do you have any advice for weatherproofing it, I’m guessing you don’t pull everything in if it rains?
    Beautiful beautiful project!
    Biz

  110. Thanks Biz!
    I am loving’ it too! We are having fun having picnics there and I think this is much more fun than some boring old standard table set. Sometimes if the weather is really bad, I will bring it in, but it is generally ok outside. I put on some polyurethane for purposes of protection, but if I had to do it all over again, perhaps another
    product? The poly created a yellowish tint on the words on the table and I don’t like that at all. It definately needs a protective coat due to weather! No doubt! If you do this and find something for yours, do drop me a line to let me know what you discovered worked!! Thanks for coming by!
    Stacey :o)

  111. Thanks for linking up last week. This project is being featured this week at Lines Across My Face so come on over and grab a featured button and link up another post.

  114. It’s gorgeous! I love robins egg blue and red together as well – so pretty together! I can see why this is a popular project!!!

  115. I love the turquoise and red (and especially the hit of red from the flowers) and the summery words.

  116. I love, love, LOVE this! Just saw you from the “Favorite posts of 2011″ linky party and am a new follower! Thanks for sharing! (I also love your blog name and tag line.) God bless, xo, Reannah

  117. This is truly the cutest project eva! I missed it the first time around when you linked up to my newbie party. I was away on vacation when I hosted that party. Anyhow, glad I got to see it now. Happy New year!

  119. Your table turned out AWESOME! I’m excited to blog with you in 2012!!! I’m hosting a party and would LOVE for you to link up!!! XO, Aimee

  121. Just adorable! Love the colors!

  122. Love, love, love. Love the paint colors and the blue & red combo just pops …

  123. So cute! Thanks for linking up!

  125. I am LOVING this table! The door, the colors! Everything!! So fun! :) You should totally enter this project in Craftbaby’s ‘Upcycle Challenge’! http://www.craftbaby.com/contests/3/upcycle-it-sweeps

  126. That is one of the coolest cutest picnic tables I have ever seen! How smart of you to think to use a door and transform it into a table. And I think it’s cool you left the doorknob on :)

    ~Lisha

    p.s. coming over from bleak2unique. Lori recommended this post when she gave you the Yostie :)

  130. How did you end up weatherproofing it? I am doing a redo of my deck and don’t have the extra cash for a new patio set right now… I’m thinking this would be perfect!!

  131. LOVE this whole idea! Nice execution too…
    especially love the summer words you came up with….

  132. what a gorgeous table!! I lvoe it. Just posted a link about this on my facebook page to your blog :O)

  133. I’m a new DIYer ;) I used your table as color inspiration for my own backyard picnic table makeover and so far I LOVE IT!! Thanks so much for sharing. I, however, have been unsuccessful in my attempts at stenciling. Do you simply trace the stencil with a pencil then hand paint or do you paint directly on the stencil? If the later, do you use stencil adhesive? Can you tell I’m a greenhorn? lol

  134. Stacey- Hi! I’m an old reader of your blog (I’m “WhyCuzICan” we used to do alot of the same linky parties), and had to tell you I stumbled on a darling homesteading blog with this table in a post about great things they’ve seen on the web. But, they accidently didn’t have the correct link to it, so I dropped them a line and let them know who is the real owner/designer of this table… yes, the Net is a small world because I recognized your table on a homesteading blog of all places, (not trash to treasure redo one like I always posted on). Their blog is here (direct link to the page that shows this lovely table) http://www.forgottenwayfarms.com/1/post/2012/06/get-out-side-with-some-outdoor-living.html

    Yes–I remembered who did the table as soon as I saw it- your work is THAT memorable! (I haven’t blogged in a year!)

    Hi! I LOVE this. I’m making a new dining patio and have very little to finance it with, so this really fits the bill, and my style. My question is, the door has cut outs that sink down a bit. Do yo find it difficult to put plates on this table? Or did you cover it with glass, or plexiglass to make the top even?

    • Hi Patti!
      Thanks for writing! Yes this is a paneled door so the recessed panels are there so yes, plates are ok overall. I just used it as is and without any issue, but you could use a glass/plexiglass top. I left the top just rest on top of the sawhorses so I thought it best to just use it as is -70it can be moved easily that way. Good luck! Would love to see what you do!

  138. Hi,

    I’m putting together a round-up on Spoonful (Disney’s crafts and cooking blog) of garage sale upcycling projects. Would you mind if I included a photo of this project and linked back to your site for the instructions?

    Thanks!

  141. Do you have a spam issue on this website; I also am a blogger, and
    I was wondering your situation; many of us have developed some nice procedures and we are looking to trade methods with other folks, why not
    shoot me an e-mail if interested.
