Coat Rack Made From An Old Door

62K Views
A lot of older homes don't have mud rooms or coat closets! And some closets just aren't used, especially by kids, they'd rather make a pile on the floor! This is a more creative solution, other than pegs in the wall!

Note to self, if you want to try a project like this on your own, try to find a door without the paint on it. I probably spend 4-5 hours trying to remove 4 layers of paint. Such a pain!

It’s important to note that this is an old, solid wood door, so it is really sturdy and easy to add hangers on.

John added crown molding to the top and a base so it could be self standing. The door rests on the bottom shelf help securely by L-Brackets on the bottom.
We painted it a new red by Benjamin Moore called Caliente AF-290 then added a door knob, along with the coat hangers. If this were in my house, I would add hangers half way down, for kids coats and back packs! Here’s how she came out and I’ve got to say… I love her!!!

    Maybe for my son. But thanks for thinking of the little ones and adding lower hangers. As I get older I have lost almost 2 " in height and shoulder fixes both sides so the shorter hooks are great for those of us height challenged.

      I too "settled" so I agree. I live in a community where each door is fitted with two heights for the peep hole.
