Wooden Door Peg Racks

DSCF5187Wooden Door Peg Racks

DSCF5189These peg racks turned out even better than I thought they would.

DSCF5190I’ve had a stash of old wooden doors for years, but with moving to a smaller house they had to be put in storage. I’ve been on a quest to reduce our storage space for over a year and have finally got two large units down to one unit half the size of the original two. That’s great, but most of the stuff that is left in the unit are things that I use for my projects. The only thing that makes sense in having them is to actually use them. It was time to repurpose the doors.

DSCF5175My husband and middle son cut the doors for the racks.

Since the doors are so old, the vibration from the saw caused a few of them to come apart so reconstruction was the first order of business.

DSCF5179After cleaning them up and sanding them I got out my stencils.

DSCF5177I really liked the natural aging on the doors so I decided not to add paint. Instead, I added a stained wax over everything. I am so glad I did. I think they look amazing.

DSCF5193The pegs were also stained and waxed before adding them to the doors.

Some nice heavy-duty hangers on the back completed the racks.

DSCF5183My first craft show of the season is this weekend in Arkansas City, Kansas at the Last-Run Car Show. If you are in the area, come check it out.

Enjoy!

  1. Have to say I really prefer those doors/signs without paint on them also. Great look and natural. Anybody buying one can use it in any room now. As always Your projects are keepers. Can imagine all the doors and whatever else you’re selling will be bought up, less to take home. Looking forward to seeing what you do next. It’s getting to be that time of year.
    I got an email from place we did craft show right before holiday last year. I opted not to do it. Just getting to be too much for me so close to holiday and getting things made for gifts. My nerves can’t handle it anymore. Need to give myself a break. Would kind of like to do the show but will have to think some more on it.
    Have great rest of week.
