Using my DeWalt sawzall, I cut the huge nails flush with the back of the door, leaving the nail heads in the door face so I would not have to fill holes.
Nail heads would look better that filled holes.
Legs were poorly constructed and wobbly ... they were destined for the burn pile, but
WAIT ... just maybe there was some life left in those old legs. We added 2x4's on the sides and since it was just to be used for outside storage, I did not replace the "scrappy" /
For the top, we nailed on some nice boards 1x4's we had salvaged from a large crate that Papa John's Pizza sign came in.
It turned out pretty nice and now the table was very sturdy.
Wish I had made some changes in the braces on the legs, but once they were painted, they were not so crappy looking.
We turned it up-side-down on the garden trailer and painted everything except the 4x4 legs which were cedar.
I think I even painted the underside to weather proof the top boards.
Yes, the top was painted too.
Kinda pretty ... and really did not want to paint those pretty boards ... BUT ... it was to be put up behind the garden to store lumber that I was weathering.
In case you are wondering ...
I bought this old work table from our
favorite Thrift store for $25.00.
Oh yes ... what did I do with the door???
