My recycled shutter turned into a coat rack!

Our church replaced all of their shutters recently and I was given the old wooden ones. There are sixteen in all..WhooHoo! Here is what I did with one of them. I cut it down to 41 x 20 and screwed these glass door knobs that I got on sale in a JCPenny catalog. It hangs at my front door and will be useful for hanging all sorts of things...I'll add two larger hooks on each side for hats too.

Here is the link where I purchased them on JCP's site:http://tinyurl.com/6yr8rlThey are painted metal that has been wrapped around some pressed board. Then a glass knob was attached at the base.
