My son’s Great Dane tried to eat his bedroom door. I replaced the door and used the damaged one to create a halltree. I used preglued pine panels to make the base and plain 2X6 for the sides. I filled in the hinge and strike plate areas but left the knob.

Very clever. I like your re-purposing of the door, rather than throwing it in the dump.

Nice save, looks great. I like the detail of leaving the doorknob in place, hides the hole and fools people. Sweet! You could add some flair and put a sign at the top, like Men’s Room. (laughing)

Great idea, and quite a conversation piece as well! This could be posted as a contest for the funniest caption.

I can only imagine what people would say if this was left in a house that was put up for sale.

Great use and save of the old door. Turned it into a fantastic and unique hall tree. Well done!

Have your say...
