DIY wall mounted french door photo gallery

It’s easy to convert an unused french door into a wall mounted photo gallery and coat rack. Here’s how to go about it.

How to Make a French Door Photo Gallery:

Cut Door Bottom: Start by cutting the wide bottom rail on the door so it’s the same width as the top rail. Mark the cutting location with a pencil, then score the line with a utility knife to prevent splintering. Use a circular saw to cut the door rail, keeping the saw blade on the waste side of the line.

Fill Holes: Remove any hinges, locksets, or other hardware and fill any mortises or holes with wood putty or auto body filler. After the putty or filler has dried, sand the surface smooth.

Finish Door: Paint or stain the door to the color desired. On this door a rust colored primer was applied to the bare wood, followed by a dry brush application of red paint, which was then topped with green glaze. The finish was sanded through in spots to give the door an antique look.

Add Coat Hooks: A row of coat hooks was screwed to the side of the door that would become the bottom.

Mount Photos: Photos were cut to size and mounted behind the glass on the back side of the door using masking tape.

Hang Door: Long screws driven into the wall studs were used to attach the door to the wall. Make sure the door is level and at the desired height when hanging.
