Turn a Door Into a Table For Seating Multiple Thanksgiving Guests

Cool Idea: Turn a Door Into a Dining Table This Thanksgiving

Many of us are hosting huge Thanksgivings this holiday. I'll be at my mother-in-law's cottage, where we'll dine with 17 guests. The largest Thanksgiving I ever hosted involved 22 friends, who were spread out over two tables in the dining room. It was fun, but the tables, which were folding Ikea-bought tables covered with long red tablecloths, weren't the most unique in the world. Wouldn't it be great to wow guests with a custom-made table instead? Blogger Settling West created this table out of a door, and I think it looks pretty amazing. You can find out how to make it here, but if you're pressed for time, you can set up something similar to this with an on-the-spot DIY. Just add a door to a few sawhorses, cover with a pretty runner, and serve! You may want to add a few screws, mounted on a small board on the sawhorses, to the underside of the door to make sure that your table doesn't topple, but otherwise, this is a unique, no-fuss solution for handling plentiful holiday guests. Have you ever tried something similar?
