Certainly, a heavy door works well to keep a cold wild or unwanted guest from entering your home, but with a little ingenuity, one works equally well to provide a place to tie your shoes or hang a coat.
At least that’s what furniture designer Scott Phillips found when he married an old farmhouse door to a couple of cut up vintage headboards and parts from a circa 1980 entertainment center.
“Obviously, the back of this hall tree is an old door, but the arms and sides of it are slices from an old headboard that are mounted upside down, and the seat used to belong to part of another headboard,” said Phillips.
This hall tree evolved slowly, taking more than a year to find its way out of Scott’s shop. “When I first built it, I used a natural stain-grade finish on the piece, but I wasn’t satisfied, it looked too contrived,” noted Phillips. “So I returned it to storage with the rest of my pieces of donor furniture not knowing if I’d ever finish it, or cut it up to use in a different project. After a year or so, I realized that with a little dental molding along its top, and the right painted finish, it would be a striking piece of furniture.”
Given its durable distressed finish and quality construction, this hall tree is ready to serve your family for many generations. It’s available for purchase at Finders Keepers in Pocatello, Idaho.
