Door/Hall Tree


I love a quick project!
After painting my front entry chevron wood floor 
I decided that I needed to have a hall tree.
I had an old door outside in the barn waiting to be used.
I drug it in.
BOY WAS IT HEAVY!
Then cleaned it up and propped it up behind the bench.
I wanted to add a shelf/ledge to the top.
A grabbed a 2X6 for the top
and a leftover piece of window trim to dress up the front.
I just used leftover primer to paint them.
I also picked up some wooden shaker pegs
from the local lumber yard for less than $2 for a set f 2.
Then I had to address the empty window hole.
I had a lot of ideas {chalk board, cork board, chicken wire, etc.}
But I ended up going with simply hanging a picture over the hole.
(I hung it with 2 nails them a added sticky tack on the all sides to keep is very stable.
I came together in one day and it is the perfect piece!
