Well this has been on my list of projects for a LONG long time!
And I am happy to report that it is finally finished!!!!
My goal was to created a place in my laundry room (which also serves as the entrance into my house through the garage) where coats, purses and just about anything could be organized and hung without taking up much space.
Another requirement was that I could not drill a million holes in the wall since this is only a rental home!
Since the holes needed to be few I knew I would need to mount my coat hooks onto something….
why not use the old cabinet doors I picked up from a building re-sale shop months ago?!
Here is the final product
And here is how I got there!
I painted each of the cabinet doors duck egg blue (Annie Sloan Chalk Paint) then distressed and finally mounted the hooks.
I like how the cabinet door give the hooks more of a decorative look versus just being functional!
Oh and I should mention in case you are wondering I found the hooks on a half off sale at Hobby Lobby so they were only $2.50 each!
For the next two cabinet doors I used some vintage door knobs I picked up from a garage sale a couple of weeks ago as addition hooks!
I just bought a dowel that fit snugly into the existing holes on the door knobs and then drilled the same size hole in the cabinet door and coated the dowel with wood glue and then placed the dowel in the hole.
I like the look but I think more than that I really like how functional this project is going to be for me and my husband! My goal is to no longer have coats and bags piled on the nearest chair when you walk into our house!!
And I should really give you a more realistic view of the coat/purse hangers in use
How do you keep your coats and purses organized?? Have you ever used vintage door knobs in your crafts?
