Coat hanger display from cabinet doors

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
:o)



How do you keep your coats and purses organized??  Have you ever used vintage door knobs in your crafts?  

I hope you are all planning on linking up this Thursday!!!  I Can't wait to see what you guys have been up to this week!!!  Is it weird that I am already this excited?!!!!

And don't forget to enter my wonderful giveaway going on this week----you could win a super super cute printable---I am a more than a little jealous!

I will be sharing this project at a couple of the following parties!

Super cute! Love this idea. I think I have even seen something similar on pinterest using different knobs, like water spicket handles.

Love how you repurposed the cabinet doors! Very cute! We have a bench/coat rack that I found at Target years ago that we keep our coats, purses and dog leashes organized on.

It came out amazing and I am really, really loving that color paint you have been using lately. So pretty. The knobs are gorgeous. What a great garage sale find. I'm boring, my purses hang on a hanger in the closest. Nothing original..LOL

Thanks for the inspiration! I have two glass knobs that I want to use for closet door handles, but couldn't figure out quite how to do it. The dowels are the perfect answer. Have a great weekend!

This is wonderful! How did you attach them to the wall so they would hold coats and bags? Picture hangers don't do the trick and I don't see any screws in the front. Thanks!
