"LADIES" Door Revival

I found this cute little door at a sale in an old industrial building.  It was covered in dirt but I could still see the charm that this had.  This was most likely a facilities door for the Ladies, hence the porcelain "LADIES" sign.  This door is smaller than your average door, it is pink on the other side and had a rusty door handle which I replaced with a glass door knob and nickel plate that I had in my hardware stash just waiting for a new home.  I cleaned the door, sealed it with polyacrylic, added four shabby coat hooks (also in my stash), painted a drawer that was sitting around and added glass knobs then mounted that to the door with two shelf brackets (of course from my stash of goodies).  I did have to search some thrift stores for the right mirror which was ok because it was priced right (painted that too).  I've had this idea for door since I bought it last summer and it's finally done!   It can be used as an entry piece to hold hats, coats, umbrellas, keys, cell phones or in the bedroom for a beauty station to hold jewerly, makeup.
