Barn Door Bedroom Hooks

I rarely check Craigs List, but I got lucky one of the few times I did check it last year.  I’m not sure if this was a small barn door, or a heavy barn gate, but I was so glad it was still available when I called about it.  There were actually several to choose from, so I bought this one, plus another one that I used as a headboard in our shed-turned-guestroom.

I thought I might use this one as a headboard in our room, but it’s it bit short for that, so I finally decided to turn it into wall hooks for my bedroom instead.  I just added a few iron hooks on it, and it was ready to use.  Both doors came with the rusty hinges, which was an extra bonus!

I picked up the hat at a thrift store a few weeks ago.  It’s actually a man’s at, but I wrapped some lace around the brim an I love how it looks hanging on the door.

And speaking of lace, I found a bunch of Queen Anne’s Lace growing along the gravel road by my house, and wanted to dry some.

It worked really well, and I was rewarded with some delicate and pretty blossoms.

 Did you notice the jar hanging on the door?  It’s the newest “milk bottle” style jar that my son has made, and it’s my favorite of all of them he’s made so far.

I can’t remember what was in this jar – it was just one I had in my stash, so I’m going to need to wander through the grocery store to find more like it, because the shape is so perfect to imitate an old milk bottle.

This one is available in my shop HERE.

  1. The hook board turned out great and I love how you decorated it, Angie! The jar shape is indeed perfect for your “Milk and Cream” decal.

  2. Adorable hooks Angie! 🙂

  3. I like your wall hook wood door thingy (LOL). That would be easy to make as well with some old boards, thanks for the inspiration.

  4. Wow! I love this so much…lucky score and a great upscale design!

  5. This looks great …love how you decorated it! So Cute!

  6. Angie,
    love your barn door! have a couple in my garage that I’ve yet to put to good use. You’ve inspired me to stop procrastinating and put them to good use! They used to sell like hot cakes in our store. The things you added to it, are perfect, looks good!

  7. Cute idea! Looks so farmy! Love it ,

  8. From the size, I would think they where doors for barn windows. My grandfathers barn had various sized doors depending on the use. Big doors for the cows to come in, even bigger doors at the top of the barn where the hay went in. Doors for the farmer and doors on the windows.

    I have a wonderful old photo of my grandfather using a horse drawn wagon unloading hay up to the loft, but could not post here

    Love your barn doors they are wonderful. You have decorated them very nicely.

  10. Oh, I soooooo love barn doors or even stall doors and yours is really beautiful…the hooks you chose fit right in with it! I had wanted to use an old barn door as a headboard but just couldn’t find one at a decent price…never thought of checking Craig’s List, though, so even though I came up with another headboard idea, I may check out CL for a barn door and, perhaps, do something similar to what you’ve done here…I just really love the look! And your son has come up with yet another fantastic looking milk bottle creation…I love the shape of it…BRAVO!

  11. What a cute idea!

    I would love to have you post on my new blog hop—the Weekend Blog Hop at My Flagstaff Home (www.myflagstaffhome.com). It begins on Thursday evenings and lasts through the weekend, if you’re interested.

  12. I have been checking out your crafts for awhile now at Knick of Time and I thought I must let you know that I am enjoying them a lot. I love rustic so your stuff is just ‘up my alley’. Thank you so much for so many ideas. Loving it!
