Old Door As Makeshift Desk

Gold Post Medal for All Time! 969 Posts

I am swapping a smaller craft room for the living/dining room in my apartment. The living room will be in the bedroom, and I am about half done with "The Great Swap of 2011"!


I am using a water heater closet door for a work desk, on two matching file cabinets. Being that it's not my door, I wanted to protect it. I went to the local St. V's and found a twin mattress protector for .25 and it fits perfectly!

If you need a desk or work space, an old door is great. Or perhaps you need a temporary picnic table for this year's Labor Day Picnic. This will protect it and never be seen under the tablecloth!

Hope this helps!

An old door on a file cabinet to use as a desk.

Thanks for the ideal of the mattress cover. We have used doors for years at our family picnics and cookouts. I saw the door used as a desk with the file cabinets on a designer show.Looked and worked great!
