Door Entry Bench

I have seen some pretty cool projects for repurposing an old door, and this one from Hillary at The Friendly Home ranks right up there! Hillary had a couple of wood doors leftover after turning her hall closet into a sewing closet.

She turned those doors into a very cool hall tree complete with a storage bench and hooks. The sides of the bench and drawer front are actually made from panels cut from the second door, and Hillary repurposed an old shelf for the seat. Knowing that Hillary’s hall tree is made from all reclaimed and scrap wood just makes me love it even more!

Go to The Friendly Home to see how Hillary made it.


  1. LOVE it! Tried to comment on Hillary’s site, but after five failed attempts at Captcha, I gave up. Why am I so bad at that?

    Love the project, and the drawer was such a great addition!

  2. Of all the Hall Trees made from doors that I’ve seen, this is definitely the best. Beautiful job.
