Simple Hall Tree DIY

A simple hall tree made from a little of this and a little of that is one of those useful pieces that really works hard in an entryway.

I made this for a show I have coming up! A hall tree that is simple and easy, with, what I think, lovely results.  I started with tis drawerless table (cell phone pic).

I painted it a few coats of white and then added some beadboard across the front where the drawer was.

and an awesome blue color I mixed up was all this needed to create a simple and functional hall tree.

Oh, why is my hall tree in the grass?  This was right before it was loaded up to head to the show.  I hope this sweet little piece finds a new, happy home!

  1. I love it. Love that color too. Great job. Good luck at show. I hope you sell everything. Wish I was there to see it all.

  2. So creative, where do you get your ideas? Wish you the best on your show tomorrow! :)

  3. Too cute!!! Thanks for sharing!

  4. This is absolutely famous! I love the raw, textural wood, softened with the soft blue paint. The contrast between the bottom and top of the hall tree is so interesting. Love this creative piece!

  5. I love your hall tree! I haven't made one in a long, long time. :) This makes me want to grab a door and get started!

    time management? THIS 57 year old body hears ya! I promised myself that I was going to work more "banker hours" this year, not pull 10-12 hour days. I've done pretty well with it because of the heat. However, Saturday it was so gorgeous, with an impending heat wave knocking on the door--so I worked from 9-8. I got a lot done, and it's a good thing. The heat is here and it's miserable!
    Now, I'll only work outside for an hour or two on less humid days... I guess I'll be utilizing the basement shop a lot more!


Thanks so much for taking the time to comment, I really appreciate your kind words!
