The little spice rack I updated last week went so well, I thought I'd give another dowdy, outdated spice rack a new life as well. I've had this in my stash for 2-3 years - time to do something with it or get rid of it!
Plain, boring, dirty, scuffed - not looking very loved. I'm about to fix that!
My daughter hated the font "Spices" was carved in, so that had to go.
A little wood filler and a good sanding took care of it.
Loved the tag on the back, but there was no easy way to save it...it's
hidden under the paint now :(
Above is the rack after wood filler, sanding, and a couple coats of spray paint - Valspar's Pewter Gray in gloss finish. A very light gray really.
And fast forward to done! This is the finished project after some distressing, walnut stain, and a cute little embellishment was added.
Perfect for the boudoir - to hold girly things like scarves,
jewelry, sun hats, perfume....
maybe I should add a couple of cup hooks to the outer sides to hold more...
And of course it could still work great in a shabby kitchen
with spice bottles lined up on the shelves.
What else might you use it for?
Would love to get your ideas!
Leave me a comment!
Cost: $5 for the rack at a yard sale
$1 for the embellishment
Maybe $1 for paint and stain, sandpaper, etc.
Total: A cool $7!
