Re-Purpose a Door into a Hall Tree & More

Well it seems my obsession with doors continues.  I have had this door for almost a year and finally got around to doing something with it.  

I started with a door that was missing the middle panel.  (I forgot to take the before photo until after adding the crown) With a little crown, bead board and a shelf I think she cleaned up really nice.  Perfect for a small entryway. 

The Oil Rubbed Bronze hooks are from Lowes. 

The decorative half "legs" were found at a salvage store awhile back.  They worked perfect for this project.  

Now for the more part.

The other day I was chatting with my friend Katie of Creatively Living Outside the Box and she mentioned she was working on a door project as well.  We thought it would be fun to share our projects together.  If you haven't discovered Katie's blog yet you are in for a treat.  Her blog is all about home renovations, decorating and her love for turning what most would see as trash into a treasure.  She is crazy creative and can turn anything into beautiful decor for her home.  

Here's what Katie came up with.

She also started with a single panel style door.

I love how her Chalkboard turned out!  Since I know we all love a good door re-purpose here's a few more of Katie's fabulous projects.  Click the title link to be taken to the posts.

Hop on over and check out Katie's blog and tell her I said Hi!  

Want even more door projects? 
Oh and this one Trumeau Mirror or Whatever You Wanna Call it I didn't use a door I used plywood but you could use an old door just as easily.

Ohhh I really like that hall tree. Sometimes they are too big for me but that one has such a lovely simplistic feel to it. Nice, really nice.

Your door makeover is amazing. I love the color you picked out too. Katie had a great idea with the calkboard. Both of these ideas are going on my list for when and if I ever come across a lonely door.
