How to Make a Coat Rack From an Old Cabinet Door

Never EVER throw away old cabinet doors! Besides many other things you can do with them, this coat rack is quick, easy, and handy-dandy to hang anywhere.
If the cabinet has a decent finish - or even chippy, just leave it as is and add a few things. Or, paint the door as you see fit.
Old hinges and the handle come in real handy, so don't remove them. This door/coat rack hangs sturdily against a wall by using the hinges for hanging.
Gather a collection of hooks. Arrange to your liking and screw them in!
Choose a meaningful print or photo. Attach with Mod Podge or a diy mixture of your own. My preference is half school glue and half water mixed together. Slather it onto the door itself, the back of the photo, and attach. Paint a coat of the mixture over the print or photo and let dry. Paint another layer of mixture over the entire inset of the door (in case your mixture has a shiny effect on the door paint).
Hang on the wall, and you're done. Enjoy! :-)

Materials I used for this project:

  • Old cabinet door.   (A trash bin or garage sale...)
  • Various hooks in desired shapes and sizes.   (Lowe's)
  • Mod Podge or school glue/water mixture.   (WalMart or diy your own, like I did.)

    Really like the way this turned out. The use of a sepia photograph adds a fantastic extra 'touch'.

    This is a good idea and the old looking photo adds the finishing touch.
