I bought this vintage door top years ago at a sale for $5.00 and while decorating our cabin I came up with idea to make it into a shelf and a coat rack as well.  I measured out evenly across the length and drilled 5 holes for coat hooks.  I grew up with the vintage hooks at my old farm house from the early 1900's, but purchased these at a building home center as I couldn't find enough vintage.  I painted them aqua since they were new and shiny and the aqua went with the beach theme I've chosen to use.  I have leather round alphabet disk labels nailed above each one to represent the different members of our family.  It has been a great hat holder at the cabin.
