Mirror Redone into Chalkboard

Here is the first piece I was working on this weekend.  I really am pleased with how it turned out.  It is now a framed chalkboard with key hooks, label areas, and cubbies.  What was it?  A mirror.

It was a stained wood framed mirror with mars, scratches and chips.  Too me it looked dated.

So I sprayed the mirror with chalkboard paint.  Then I spray painted the hooks an oil-rubbed bronze to bring them back to life. 

 I sanded the varnish off and then primed and painted the  wood.  I chose an off-white tinted with blue.  Partly because I had that paint, but I didn’t want a stark white.  I finished it off with a light poly spray to protect it some but I didn’t want it to be shiny.  I was going to distress it, but this piece is for sale and around my area, distressing hasn’t caught on as well.  I really like how it turned out, and if I had room for it I would keep it.  So here is another look.
