A DIY Vintage Door Table and Thrift Store Chairs Become A Cute Bistro Set For A Cottage Style Kitchen
I love vintage doors and snatch them up whenever I see them at thrift stores. But what can we DO with a vintage door? How about a vintage door table?! Today we will be revisiting a furniture makeover project I did a few years back. I would like to show you the story of how a vintage door got a new lease on life as part of a cute little Bistro set fit for a cottage style kitchen
I found a pair of great vintage doors at a thrift shop and have actually made a few tables out of them. On this particular table I started with one vintage door cut in half. I had four old kitchen table legs in my stash of supplies. I framed out the “apron” of the table with 1″ X 4″ pine boards bought at my local Lowe’s Home Improvement store. Using wood glue and L brackets I attached the apron to the vintage door and attached the legs with more L brackets. After the table was built I painted it a pretty turquoise blue.
The chairs were a great thrift store find. I love the shape of them. I painted the chair frames in white and covered the seats in a pretty aqua and brown toile fabric I recovered the seats in. Tres Chic!
Paired with the vintage door table, it makes a lovely little Bistro set. I just love this darling little set. It would be perfect for a home limited on space but not character! This little table would be a wonderful place to sit with a cup of coffee in the morning.
If you like to refinish furniture and are comfortable with power tools, you can make your own door table like this one. Keep an eye out for vintage doors at thrift stores and flea markets. You can also find them at antique stores but they will be more expensive. If you have a Habitat for Humanity Re-sale Store near you that would be a great place to look. They have everything at these stores. Even the kitchen sink!
Table legs can be purchased at your local home improvement store but they can be rather expensive. Keep your eye out for old tables in poor condition at your local thrift store. You can probably get one for pennies, salvage the legs then toss the top!
Vintage solid wood doors can also be made into coffee tables the same way. Add a glass top for a smoother, spill friendly surface!
