This is my first post...can I ask how I put my picture on? or quotes at the bottom? i am rather webtechically challenged, but i am learning....

my question is this: what should I do with this old door that I found? Its a full size, inside door, with a handle and everything....i was thinking of turning it into a table but if anyone else has a good idea, i am open!

How handy are you?  Or do you know any toolish types?  Last year at a craft show I old doors cut in half vertically (i.e., top to bottom), the two halves joined at a right angle, and shelves attached.  (You have to use a solid core door, of course, not the hollow core kind.)

Keep it loose, keep it tight.

I was originally going to use a door for my desk, but instead I'm going to use a three-inch thick sheet of clear plastic-glass type stuff. But yeah. To do this.... if it's raised panel, you need a sheet of plastic or glass over it, though. But I really like the table/desk idea.

a table or desk are great ideas!!  or if the door is hollow/lightweight you could suspend it from a ceiling with wire rope to create a mini-loft storage unit.  (is my lack of floor space obvious?!)

You could use it as a head board for yur bed if you were to nail it up horizontally.
