Spray Paint Quickie- Magazine Rack

 I love it when a simple project gets done in under an hour. The transformations that can be done using spray paint are endless, especially on small projects like this one.

As you can see this was an ordinary magazine rack that I purchased from my favorite thrift store.

But with the help of spray paint it's not ordinary anymore.

I used Valspars Color Radiance- Nautical color. I love bright colors, especially on small pieces.

Just spray it, let it dry, and some sanding here and there.

It really is that easy and gives it a whole new look.

Corners and spindles have so much definition now.

The best part is if you want to change the color it's only a can of spray paint away.

What's your favorite piece that you have done with spray paint??

Thanks for stopping by,

Big Bertha Bench

I'm so happy to finally share this bench project with you. It has been completed for a few weeks but I'm just finding the time to share.

I was calling her Big Bertha because this is one heavy bench that is 5 feet long.

She was constructed from a little of this and a little of that.

The bottom bench came from a Chili's restaurant that was remodeled. It only had the front legs so we added the back ones. Mike added the metal scroll arms and the metal frame for the back.

I added multi-colored scrap wood pieces for the seat.

The back is the same piece of wood that I used for my Junk Holiday Mantel.with the car parts removed.

But we did add a handle just to give it some detail.

A few pieces of reclaimed fence give the trim a finished look.

Even though we love the bench it did make the trip to our show last weekend. She was a good spot to display a few frames and things for the weekend.

And she SOLD!! Thank goodness we only had to move her once and she now has a new home.

Enjoy your new place on the beach side of Florida, Big Bertha.
