Entryway lamp, coat rack & mirror
A while back I noticed that a lot of my friends don't have lights they can turn on when they walk in the front door. It's definitely a thing in South Minneapolis to have to fumble through a dark room to turn on a lamp because there's no switch inside the front door (or the switch doesn't do anything.) So I thought, what else would be handy just inside the door? A place to hang your keys, or hat, or coat... and a mirror to check your face on the way out probably wouldn't hurt either. This is what I came up with.
Much of this lamp has been reused or in some way salvaged, which gives the whole thing a sort of rustic feel. The wood was salvaged and is beautifully weathered. The coat hooks were saved from an old coat rack. The mirror is from an old truck or van and is adjustable, so you can angle it for your height. I had to buy that mason jar from the thrift store after using all of our drinking glasses to build lamps. The cord is 12 foot long, so you shouldn't have any trouble reaching an outlet and has a rocker switch on it... just below the lamp where it's easy to find in the dark.
