One project down

and several to go…today I am going to link up @Frou Frou Decor with my Fabulous Friday Find, and if you want to check out some great little projects then stop over and say hello.  Thanks Terrell for sharing your party with me. 

One day last week while I was scouring the local Goodwill shop, I ran across this old spice rack for $2.  (Forgive the quality of these pictures,hey, at least I remembered to grab the camera.  LOL)

20100924_11So earlier this week when I had nothing better to do….NOT!  I decided I would take a little trip to the local store and pick up some white spray paint….so I could work on this.  I am quite pleased how it turned out. After two coats of paint, and one coat of antiquing, and a little sanding…this is how it looks now.



You can see how well the original paint came through when I sanded it.  It’s almost finished, I need to add a sealer to it.


So what do you think?  Better? Worse? And now to figure out what to do with it.  Debating on whether to use it in the kitchen or in my craft room..leaning more towards the craft room. 

Have a blessed and wonderful Friday.

Assolutamente d'accordo con lei. L'idea di un bene, sono d'accordo con lei.
Condivido pienamente il suo punto di vista. Ritengo che questa sia un'ottima idea. Sono d'accordo con te.

Hi Cindy, I would use that for my crafting too. That was a good buy! I hope you have fall weather because we were 108 today! I know you are happy being home being the happy homemaker. Enjoy the new tv. Hugs
