Custom Spice Rack Re-DO!
WELCOME TO MY BLOG! If you are NEW...Welcome and if you are a returning visitor -- Thank you! I would LOVE LOVE LOVE if you would click on follow in the side bar and become a FOLLOWER!
This is my BRAND NEW spice rack I got from my husband for mother's day -- that I redid to customize it for ME! I orginally wanted this really cool stainless steel one we had seen at Costco. But when he bought me this one instead...I actually decided I like it BETTER! You see...it's wood, which means I can CUSTOMIZE it OVER...and over...and over through the years to make it match my newest kitchen with....JUST A LITTLE PAINT!
Here is the brand new pretty thing...emptied of it's spices.
I KNEW I wanted the 'Shabby Chic' look for this so I went digging through my garage for some supplies. I started lightly sanding it down to take off the varnish with sandpaper.
Then...I dug out my left over spray paint. With 'Shabby Chic' I needed BLACK underneath so when I sanded it down to make it look old and worn....the black would show through.
After one REALLY good coat of black, I gave it TWO really good thorough coats of WHITE!
Then...I took some sandpaper pads I had left over from another project in the garage and started on the corners...removing some of the loose paint and around the corners to make it look worn.
I LOVED the worn look and I think it turned out PERFECT!
I LOVE how this one turned out....HMMMM...Maybe I'll do our DESK NEXT!
