Repurposed Hutch Doors into Hook Rack1:45:00 PM
It is hard to believe where this hook rack began it's life...
On the side of the road, on my way home from the shop one morning...
I ran across a beautiful hutch in pieces. Someone was throwing it to the curb and completely disassembled it.
It was a sad sight but I jumped out of my car and tried to grab anything I could to salvage and give another life... Unfortunately these thin doors were about all that was left.
I gave it a little thought and then decided I'd turn them into a hook rack, I had some great large hooks from D Lawless Hardware that I was anxious to use on just the right piece.
I began by laying the 2 doors end to end then gluing and nailing them to a long board.
The next step was to use lattice slats from Home Depot to frame the doors.
I would like to add that my Ryobi nail gun is just about the best tool I own... and this is not a paid endorsement!
I painted the finished piece with Annie Sloan Chalk Paint in Old White with a wash effect using Paris Grey.
When the paint dried I distressed the raised edges.
I added 3 extra large hooks from D Lawless Hardware and called it a day.
The beautiful long hook rack is elegant!
I'm thrilled that at least part of this old beautiful hutch has a new life!
DLawless provided the hardware for this project but all opinions are my own.
