Door Slab Table
A homemade coffee table can start with many different recycled items. One of the simplest is a door! Remove the door, if it’s still mounted to a frame, and refinish to enhance the natural wood or give it a fresh coat of paint. Then attach it to a table framework.
Polished Concrete Table
Polished concrete can be stamped and sealed to create a surprisingly luxurious, modern coffee table. These tables work well in more industrial-style rooms, or out on the patio. Take a look at our complete how-to instructions on how to make one for your home.
