Revamp a Mirror into A Coat Rack for Your Entryway

[pinit]DIY Coat rack from Mirror #chalkpaint @savedbyloves[pinit]

With some scrap wood and chalk paint, you can revamp a junky thrift store mirror into this handy, distressed entryway coat rack.  This entire project was pulled off for less than $10!  I am always in need of more shelves for my pictures and knick knacks.  When I saw a similar mirror in Ana White’s book of woodworking projects for the home – “The Handbuilt Home”, I it called to mind a mirror I picked up at a garage sale for $2.

How to Build a Mirror

All I did was use pallet wood scraps and cut 3 planks to fit the width of my mirror, using my mitre saw.  Two of the planks I placed perpendicular at the bottom and one horizontally at the top for a bonus shelf.  Using my scroll saw, I cut out the decorative shelf brackets for the top and bottom shelves.  To attach the shelving pieces to the mirror, I used my Kreg Jig for pocket holds, and wood glue.  The brackets I placed with my Ryobi Air Strike Nailer and wood glue.  I painted the mirror with Annie Sloan Paris Gray Chalk Paint and sealed with clear wax after sand distressing.  To finish, I added three coat hooks I picked up from the hardware store.
