  1. Love your idea of making a Hall tree. Using a door and a chest drawer, then turning it in one furniture. You can write on the door some notices. Such a convenient and friendly way. Many thanks

  2. Oooh Deb!!! That hall tree rocks!!! We are moving from and old 1842 one om school house converted, to an amazing 1870 mansion [well…to US it’s a mansion! LOL] and there is a bit as you come into the back thru the huge Florida room where this would look awesome in!!! Thanks for the inspiration!!! Off to look at the rest of your blog!!!

  3. How did you attach the two? Did you paint each individually first?

    Also – would you sector to the wall as well, once completed?

    • Did you ever get an answer to your question?

    • I used screws to attach the two pieces. I painted the piece after it was put together. Depending on the height of the dresser that you attach to the piece, you will have to secure to the wall, due to the weight of the door. Always attach tall furniture to the wall.

  4. LOVE this! Could you tell me the color of the hall tree?

  5. Wow! These are SO BEAUTIFUL! I featured this on my blog today as a favorite from my group pinterest board! http://www.interiorfun.com/2014/01/we-love-friday-favs-2.html

  6. Wow, love them both! Jus goes to show how paint will marry pretty much any mismatched pieces. Thank you for the inspiration! I have the door, just need to find the chest. Pinning this to my repurposed board and creative with wood board.

  7. Beautiful! I have the perfect chest for this project…now to find a door! Thank you for sharing.

  8. I just did this with an old door and old piano bench! The only expense was a gallon of paint and hooks! 🙂

  9. they make such a lovely couple – I hope they make it!!

  10. Oh I love these. I always wanted to make some. Might have to give it a try.

  11. What a great idea! Thanks so much for sharing it 🙂

  12. What a brilliant idea Debbie!! I LOVE it and I am pinning it so that I can copy you. Hugs, Gail

  13. With this “pin” I thee wed.


  14. These are amazing, I really love the idea. Unfortunately my hall is really narrow, just a corridor really, but thanks for the inspiration !

  15. Oh how cute!!! Love them both, would have a difficult time choosing one. ADORABLE!!!

  16. This is awesome Deb! I love your clever ways:) Pinning:)

  17. Very clever. I never would have thought of marrying these two for this purpose. Is the chest you painted white w/shuttered doors an Erhan Allen piece from long ago?

  18. I love your hall tree and want to attempt to make one this summer as it’s a project I’ve not tried yet! Is there a link to more specifics as to HOW you attached the table to the door? I’m a self-taught gal, and much of it is NEW to me! But I love, love, love your work! What are you selling this piece for in your new storefront? It’s gorgeous, girl! Thanks for sharing! So happy to be following and learning from you! Thanks for the inspiration.

    • Love the transformation! Are there any instructions on how to attach the chest to the door? I am a DIYer myself and would like to try this cute idea.
