I bought this antique door at a salvage yard. Turned it on its side, routed out the panels, added mirrors, then hung it over two yard sale shelves and added some decorative molding and hooks. I love this coat rack! It has enough hooks for each of us to have two! #ProudestDIY

    Very nice. I love wood. In the old farmhouse we lived in I found some old doors that I wanted to utilize, but couldnt think of anything useful other then hinging them together to make a room divider. They were not as nice as yours but still interesting.
