Shabby Chic Coat Rack

Over the summer, my parents' neighbor was throwing out a mirror that had cracked during the east coast earthquake. I saw the top of the mirror out by the trash and knew I could do something with it.  

Here is the original piece.
 There were edges on each side which I sawed off and then sanded down.

Using a saw is not as hard as I thought! Woohoo.
Smooth as a baby butt! I then painted white and distressed.
I then added hooks to the bottom. I drilled holes and screwed the hooks in.

Then I measured a few inches from the sides and top so I could add the metal hook which will hold the mason jars.  The mason jars are held up my a hose clamp which I attached to the metal hook and then tightened the hose clamp screw to ensure it wouldn't fall.

this is the hose clamp screw I was referring to

Then I added flowers and hung!  Here's the final product.


  1. This is really creative, you did a great job on it.

  2. Now ain't that cute? Love your redo and your new "power over the saw" fear you had. You ROCKED it, and thanks for sharing :D
