Late this summer my husband and I saw a bunch of doors on the side of the road with a big FREE sign on them.
You don't have to send me a formal invitation.
But we were in my husband's sedan without the capability to haul anything.
So I sent him back with my car.
The door he picked was a sliding closet door with no hole for a door knob.
It was painted white on one side and had a very light stain on the other.
I knew I wanted to stain it dark.
With the help of Pinterest, I found that wooden sawhorses would make great legs.
But sturdy ones were expensive.
I couldn't take a FREE door and blow it with expensive legs.
I found some solid wooden snack tray tables at a thrift store for $3 a piece.
Monte attached the door to the tables with screws.

Now the fun began.
Sanding (which I just love to do!)
|I mixed my own cream colored chalk paint |
for the legs.
|I love the way the stain looks on the top.|
But I didn't want it to be permanent.
