Making an entrance

Annarita from Firenze, Italy wanted a more luxurious looking entryway. Here’s how she and her husband made it.

1. Mongstad mirror $99.99
2. Grundtal toilet roll holder $4.99 (x3) = $14.97
3. Grundtal hanger $1.99 (x2) = $3.98
4. 6 large washers (two for each roll holder)
5. 3 long screws (one for each roll holder)
6. 4 long screws (one for each hunger)

1. Drill
2. Screwdriver

    Be careful because the panels of the frame are actually hollow. I used a hollow wall knotting anchor to attach hooks.

    Great idea with multiple uses. Not only do you keep things off the floor and but you also can make sure you look good before leaving the house. Fabulous use of materials from Ikea. I simply love Ikea!!

    fantastic hack!! i think i’m going to use it.

    here are things i like about this project:

    large mirror – always a good thing in a hallway. aside from its direct utility, it makes hallway feel bigger.

    wide margin frame – creates plenty of room for coat and bag hooks and it does look “designy”.

    this one is selfish ;) frame is black, very “city” look, which will work perfectly for me.

    a huge plus is that its relatively simple. and, also, one can easily change it to fit own needs (different kinds of hooks, different arrangement).

    once again, fantastic hack, congrats and thank you much for sharing.
