This Old Door

Just a Relaxing Sunday creating a Hall Tree with a drawer from an Old Door that was give to me the other day. This Old Door is solid good Old Fir and Heavy
It came with it;s own Patina which I saved. I cleaned and seal the door with perminizer to keep it from anymore chipping and holding it's natural Old Finish left.
This is what most of the Door looks Like closely.

 This is what I came up with as far as a design to it. It was my first stab to make a Hall Tree. The parts of this piece are from different things making it what it is at this point. I'm not sure what colors I will use on accessories yet but you know how it goes ... It will come to me at some point.

Thanks for checking it out.


  1. I love this coat rack. A friend of mine wants me to help her build something like this for her new place! I hope it turns out as nice as yours!

    1. Thanks for your kind words Lonie,
      This piece is not finished yet actually. I have painted it now but not sure I like the colors at this point. Sometimes you have yo wait for a day or two to make a better judgement.
      The patina of this piece is cool I thought as well, that's why I kept it original ... I'm sure you will have fun with your friend when building one with here. Here's to your success Lonie ... and thank you for stopping by my Blog site you are appreciated. Greg
