My daughter found a Coca-Cola pallet washed up on the beach, which we used to create this framed full-length mirror and a matching hall table, posted here:

The mirror is contact cemented to a sheet of 1/4” birch ply. The frame pieces are glued and nailed from the back onto the ply backing. She sanded the pallet boards enough to smooth them, but retain that weathered aged “patina”.
