A(nother) Door Project: Making a sweet table

Can we get back to the new craft room for a minute? I kind of thought that once it was finished, I would be wrapping & crafting away. During the holidays, I spread everything out on the floor & worked away. I loved being able to leave everything out & come back to it later. And, frankly, I like doing projects on the floor. Nonetheless, I took a look around & realized that I needed to add a small table. As I started to shop for a cool, old table, I realized that this was going to be a pricey addition, and the dimensions had to be just right. My husband has been cleaning out the garage, (thank goodness!!), and came across our old screen door from our former house. Yes, he kept that, can you believe it? He suggested that I re-finish the door & put it on sweet, dainty legs. I decided to give it a try. Check it out. Oh, and not to worry, we saved the other half of the door so I'm sure it will pop up in some project down the road ;)

Here’s what we’re doing:
My husband cut the door in half
I filled in the hinge holes with wood filler & did a quick hand-sand
I painted the underneath white, he added the legs (purchased from Lowe’s)
Then, I painted the top (primed it 1st of course)
Even with the primer, it took 2 coats of paint
We ordered a custom piece of glass to fit in the scalloped area
Totally cute right?
