Shabby Little Door Table

I had this old door sitting in my garage for a while just waiting for a project like this.  I decided to bust out my new circular saw & try it out.  The door was 72" x 24", so it was a little smaller than a standard door.  I cut a few inches off the bottom & then made 2 cuts on each end, which gave me 15" table bases.  I sanded the pieces & then attached the top to the bases with L brackets.  It required brackets on each side of the base to sturdy up the table.

I was inspired by several of the door tables I've seen elsewhere.  I haven't seen one exactly like this, although it's probably out there!
