DOOR...THEN FRAME SHOP TABLE...NOW MOSAIC TABLEJuly 11th, 2010 in member junk
Don't have a before picture, because the door I used is well over 35 years old. I inherited the door from a cousin who is a landscape architect and he used it as a table in his office for years. I started using it in 1979 when I opened an Art Gallery and Frame Shop. It had two small bookshelves on each in as legs and I used it as a table for taking framing orders. That business was opened for close to 15 years. Since then the door stood in my basement for many years. Then about 4 years ago I covered it in mosaic tiles and we are now using it on our screened porch. Now another cool thing about this door/table is the legs are small round tables that I saw a friend tossing curbside one day. I stopped and he helped me load them up...all 6 of them. He rented the tables out for weddings, but had decided to give that up. The chairs we use around the table...all bought for $5 each at a church yard sale, and painted black. It was a little difficult to get photos of such a large table, but maybe you get the idea.
