I have told you a few times about my friends in Cincinnati…they live in this gorgeous old home. Chris had these really old pocket doors that she found in the cellar…and was at a loss for what to do with them. I have had them in my garage for about 2 years…no joke (hubs has been super happy to have them in there too…or not…) Any who, I knew they could be something purposeful again…I just wasn’t sure what it would be…until now….
The door I used (actually, we aren’t sure if it was used as a door or window…it is an odd length) it was perfect size to lean against the wall. You could find an old window and hang it on the wall…or a door…just look for something that has a nice sturdy wood frame. You will need to drill into the sides to screw in the cup hooks. I stabilized the door to the wall with command hooks that are velcro. Worked like a charm. You don’t want to skip this step—otherwise when you go to remove some wrapping the whole door may come with it;)
I used cup hooks and attached them every 4 inches on both sides of the frame. Then I measured the dowel rods and cut them to size with my miter saw (handsaw would be fine).
I attached a hook for scissors too ;) My gift wrap was a little bit long…so I cut that with my miter saw too…yeah, that is the first time I cut gift wrap with my miter saw. It was interesting…but worked great!
Hey Chris, I think I hear this old door singing again….or maybe that is Sophia? ;)

I love this project. There are so many beautiful wrapping paper rolls out there and this is such a fabulous, stylish way to display them. Great job!
