Repurposed Hutch Doors into Hook Rack

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!
