    antique door + tempered glass = awesome kitchen island, kitchen table, or picnic table!

    Like this Kitchen island. Old door that has been clear coated, glass cut for about $70 dollars to fit overtop the door! So cute, so cheap and easy LOVE IT .... You can use a door from your first house too so it has meaning :)

    Cool idea! As you can see, the top of the island is an antique door (minus the hardware) and to prevent the paint from chipping either further (food+paint=ewww) a coat or two of polyurethane was used. There was also a 1/4" tempered glass sheet laid over the top to ensure an even prep space but since it's clear you can still see it's unique beauty. I designed the base of the island so that the bar stools could be pushed flush underneath in order to maximize the space in this galley kitchen. I also added the shelf in order to add additional storage space for kitchen supplies. {re-do breakdown} Door - $0 (re-used from a previous building) Glass - $75 Wood - $0 (re-used from a previous building) Polyurethane - $0 (purchased for a previous project) Total: $75

    using the reclaimed wood idea for kitchen islands instead of tables... antique door + tempered glass = awesome kitchen island!! LAURA: We have several doors on the South side of the house that we could paint and make look older and then add wood or metal legs.

    Such a great idea. No need to throw out that old door. Table from an old door with glass on top

Create your own rustic island by recycling an old door and adding a glass top- I LOOOOOVE THIS!!

Old door turned into a potting table. Now that we are considering a return to San Diego, I wonder if that cool architectural resale store is still downtown?

nice- old farmhouse table in kitchen with great big open doors! great kitchen, but should look out onto green pasture!

Old door - new table. Simply changing the orientation of this household staple opens the doors to a variety of refurbished furniture ideas.

this is an old door cut in half. Possible vanity table in a spare bedroom or maybe even a diy vanity for the bathroom & do a sink that sits on top...
