What You’ll Need:

In order to begin the conversion process, you’ll need these materials:

  • One door. This will be the tabletop.
  • Four wooden posts. These will be the table legs.
  • Four boards measuring 1x3x8 feet. These will be the skirt boards for the table.
  • Beveled-cut glass measured the same size as the door. This will protect the door and provide a flat surface for the table.

It’s also a good idea to have these tools:

  • Power sander and sandpaper.
  • Pocket-hole jig.
  • Chop saw.
  • Drill and screws.
  • Paint and brushes.

Time to Build It

  1. Cut the wood posts to the desired height of the table. A standard dining table is 29 inches; subtract from that the thickness of the door plus the glass, and that will be the length of your posts.
  2. Construct the skirt of the table from the plank boards. The skirt is a wood overhang that connects the legs and holds up the tabletop. You’ll be cutting them down from 8 feet. Measure the length and the width of your door. Then from each number, subtract the 2 inches plus the thickness of the wood posts. Use these numbers to determine how long each board should be (you’ll be cutting two boards for each number).
  3. You’ll drill three pocket holes on the inside ends of the skirt boards, so you can attach the skirt to the posts. Then, drill a number of pocket holes along the inside of the skirt board, spacing them a foot apart. This is how you’ll attach the skirt boards to the underside of the door.
  4. This is a great time to prepare the tabletop. Sand the door with the power sander and sandpaper, apply primer and then paint it to the desired color. Wait for it to dry before continuing.
  5. Now let’s assemble the table. Screw the legs to the skirt through the pocket holes. Next, place the table base on top and screw through the single pocket holes that you drilled on the inside of the skirt boards.
  6. Finally, lay the glass on top of the door. You may need assistance as glass of this size can be quite heavy, which also helps it to stay in place during the course of regular use.

The Top 5 Entry Door Trends for 2017

The front doall-weather-large-grand-entryway-dooror is the focal point of your home. According to Remodeling Magazine’s annual Cost vs. Value Report for 2017, a stylish and beautiful door can add an average of 90.7 percent of your cost to the value to your home.

1. Go for the Grand Entryway

Grand entryways are a popular trend. If you want your entryway to be a showstopper, then you should choose a door that is stunning and ornate to welcome guests into it (like the example pictured above.) Keep in mind, however, that you want your door to keep with the overall style of your home

2. Add A Unique Touchall-weather-door-with-transom-windows

Another way to stand out in 2017 is to be casual, but a little unusual. Consider adding a unique touch such as doors with transom windows (pictured on the right) or even arched doors.

If you have an older home, choose a door that is consistent with the style and era of your home. Unsure of your options? We have lots to offer!

3. It’s Time to Go Bigger

Front doors are becoming larger. If you have a high enough ceiling in your entrance hall, you may wish to consider an eight, or perhaps even nine-foot-tall door. In addition to growing taller, doors are getting wider, some designs are three-and-a-half feet wide. Therma-Tru currently offers a door measuring three-foot six-inch-wide, and eight-foot-tall.

4. Energy Efficiency is a Must

Homeowners are increasingly concerned about energy-efficiency and seek products with the latest technology to keep the home functional and comfortable. Not only do we offer energy efficient solutions for your entry door, we provide a beautiful, wide range of styles to match your home perfectly.

Any time is a great time to replace your entry door. Especially if you are upgrading to a more energy-efficient door. The sooner you have your new door installed, the sooner you can begin saving money on your utility bills.
