Small Mirrored Coat Rack

Made from MDF and painted black. Round mirror and coat hooks that my client picked out, I mounted them. That is one of her kitchen cabinets I built in the reflection.


Measure Twice Cut Once -- It's a lot easier to cut more off then it is to cut MORON.
Finishing is 3 parts chemistry and 1 part VooDoo http://lrgwood.com

Wow...that's nice! How did you mount the horizontal pieces to the mirror?

It is stacked. The bottom layer has the flat section and then another round section is stacked on top of it. The mirror is in a rabbet that is routed in the backside.

Here it is in it unpainted form, you can see more detail, hard to take pictures of black stuff.

Light sanding of the MDF edges and then heavy coat of primer and a good scuff sanding, then another coat of primer and then two coats of clear. Sanding in between each coat smooths things out nicely.
