I took an old closet door and a stack of plates which didn't sell at my yard sale and turned it all into a usable coffee table.
Approximate Time: One Saturday
Remove the hardware from the door and scrape as much paint off as you can.
Give a quick, light sanding to keep all the dings and scratches in the wood.
Measure the door to desired table length, mark, and cut off the ends, to use as legs.
Break your stack of old plates into pieces and glue them on (as a mosaic).
Cover the area with grout and once dried, sponge on some white acyrlic paint over the entire area. A damp cloth removes the excess paint from the plate pieces.
Use the brackets to attach the legs on underneath and then cover the entire door with a polycrylic gloss finish.

Wow, very unique and fantastic result.
Awesome job on your "trash to treasure" project!
Wonderful job! You have inspired me! I have an old iron sewing machine base outside. I am going to put a mosaic top on it. I thought it would be so hard you made it look easy enough for me, and so pretty. Thank you for sharing and inspiring!
Beautiful ~ Thanks for sharing, it's given me some ideas!
