Barn Door Coffee Table

Hey my friends! It’s Friday! How was your week?

We have been so busy around here trying to get our front flower beds done…yay! I will be sharing the flower beds with you soon, I hope.

But for today…I wanted to share our new coffee table creation. We used a vintage barn door on top of our existing coffee table.

See the barn door leaning against the wall in this kitchen photo:

We screwed it to the top of the small coffee table below:

Then we gave it a coat of white paint for easy clean-up.

And here it is all finished:

This area in the center of our three sofas needed a larger table.  This is our family room, where we eat snacks, play games, and kick up our feet to watch TV.  It makes the perfect coffee table.

I’m sharing our creation with:

Thanks so much for stopping by today! Have a wonderful weekend :)

You are a girl after my own heart. I have a little obsession with doors and this is great. I love the table and love the door over the sofa. Beautiful.

That is so lovely, Becky! The table was beautiful before too, but I love the simplicity of the new (old) door.

Love it, it looks perfect in your room. I need to trade my ottoman for a table with more surface space, I have an idea for one, hope it turns out as great as yours.

The whole room is awesome! It's been a while since I've visited and I just love the door with the mirror hanging above the sofa. Oh,my goodness I could feel instant peace and calm in this room. Just perfect for a good book and a cup of coffee. What great ideas you have.

Great vacation might be your dream. Travel to Bali is not always expensive as there are many international flights providing special rates for early bird booking. There are also many selection of Bali hotels offering special discount rates including Bali villas and budget Bali accommodation.

See you and your beauty soon.
