Antique Door Plate and Drawer Pull Wall Hook

by Destri on May 31, 2010

A few months ago Aubrey was in town and I drug her around to some vintage shops in Salt Lake, she thought I was nuts I know it.  I have to walk through oh so slowly to make sure I don’t miss anything, and while I look at stuff I think of ways I could use it.  Yes, she was very patient with me!

I saw these antique door plates and then some pretty draw pulls and decided they would make a great wall hook for my purses and coats.

I love the way it turned out!  I am disappointed I didn’t pick up a few more because now I want to have six hanging above a bench with maybe a mirror in the center, cute no?

I almost spray painted it, but I rather liked the patina against the crystal.  But for a little girls room I think they would be darling painted.

Diy Door Plate Wall Hook


  • antique door plate
  • drawer pull, or door knob
  • E-6000 glue, or something of the like

Put a good amount of glue around the ring of the drawer pull.

Then center the knob on the door plate where the door knob would go, and old it there for a minute.  Then let it dry for awhile, that’s it!  Then hang it up, so easy.

I have mine hanging right by my door for now, but when I have a chance to get some more I will hang them together over a bench in my entry.  I will post some pics, cause I have a project with that too :)

Don’t you think a couple would look great hanging in a bathroom for robes?  Oh the possibilities.

Like the bag?  Well in case you missed it, I made it from a vintage pillow case I saved, and it was so easy!  Go here for the tutorial.

I actually really need a couple things to hang coats and bags on by my front door. I don’t think I can rumage up an antique door plate, but I bet some good looking drawer pulls would look pretty good on a painted peice of wood. Thanks for the good idea.

So cute! What a great idea.

PS – was fun to see you at CBC and remember that I helped deliver your baby :)

I have to admit that I wasn’t that interested in “vintage” when I went with you Destri…but you will be delighted to hear that I am now loving it! I don’t think I’m as into it as you, but I sure love what you did! I knew I should have just bought what you did so that when you came up with something real cute I could just whip it up quick. ;-) I’ll be back in August!

Love, Love, Love it! You really have to give me some tips. I would love to go thrifting, but I have no idea where to go. Plus, I have all this furniture we inherited…and I don’t know what to do with it!

Adorable! I have fallen for this project – - BIG TIME!

I shop the same way! Drives my sister crazy (she’s not much of a shopper though!)

What a great idea to use it as a hook/hanger thing! Great tutorial too! :)
