About 8 years ago I found a large wooden door at a garage sale for 1.00. I snagged that puppy up and brought it home and made a coat rack for my entrance. I have loved it! It holds a lot of coats and keeps the mud room fairly organized. But, after 8 years my style has changed. Here are some pictures of my old one. Keep in mind my style was Old World/Tuscan.
The door was already cream colored and I just added wallies (remember those?) and some scrapbooking paper, some stamps, walnut ink and lots of different shaped hooks. I had a key holder (hard to see in the picture) and a couple plaques and mirrors. It was perfect for then, but I needed to change it up!
If you’re new to my blog you probably haven’t seen my kitchen. It’s definitely different than my Old World one. The first picture is more to the true color of my kitchen/ It shows my Banquette kitchen seating my husband built me The other two pictures are of my new DIY $40.00 Farmhouse Table. You can see that HERE
I love the bright colors! It’s very cheerful to me. I know it’s not everyone’s style but it’s mine. Anyway, I wanted to change my door to match my new kitchen and this is what I did.
6. There was a piece of scrap wood in the barn and I spray painted it blue. A strip of paper was mod podged to the wood.. I cut two small strips of pink vinyl and added that. Added cup hooks to hang the keys onto.. Cut a piece of orange vinyl as well as the letters spelling KEYS.
7. I had a tin basket that I bought at a garage sale for 2.00 and spray painted it orange. Then I cut some vinyl into chevrons and letters spelling MAIL. Velcro was attached to the back of the basket and then stuck to the door.
8. I cut my boys names out of vinyl and added them to the door. That is where they are to put there backpacks everyday.
And there it is! My brand new (old) door ready for a new school year. I love walking down the hall and seeing the fun colors. It makes me happy!
Have you done a project with an old door?? I’ve done several with cupboard doors. Here is my Upcycled Cupboard Door. If I’ve inspired you to create a door coat rack, Habitat for Humanity Restore is a great place to find cupboard doors and large doors for a great price.
