Coat Hanger: Re-purposing an Old Door

Re-purposing is such a fun way to turn trash into something functional and beautiful. I used what was an old door and turned it into a coat hanger using some scrapbook paper, sand paper, Annie Sloan dark wax, hooks from an antique shop, and a drill. This is a fun project and isn't overly time consuming!:)

    Cute idea. At first, I thought the scrap paper was cork, so another play on your idea would be to mount a cork pin board and you could pin messages for each family member at "their" hook.
