Refurbished Spice Rack
This past weekend was a free yard sale weekend in Ontario, CA. Nicole and I hit the streets early-ish Saturday morning in hunt for treasures and craft ideas. The last time we went out on this weekend we didn’t find too much, but Saturday we went home with arms full of stuff, and each of us only spent around $5!
I collect shot glasses. It started with a shot glass I asked my dad to buy me at Knotts Berry Farm when I was in middle school; it had flames and classic cars on it, I loved it instantly. Now I get a shot glass as a souvenir on trips. I have a ton of them now with really no where to put them. Currently my glasses are on a shelf in my room in a huge mess, so I have been wanting to find a spice rack to use as a way to display them.
Just my luck I found a great one this weekend for $1 at a yard sale! Here is how I refurbished it to match my furniture and hold my shot glasses.
What you will need:
- Paint brush and paint stir stick
- Fine sand paper
First start by lightly sanding the wood to remove glossy finish so new paint will stick. Just sand enough to remove glossy finish.
Open can of paint and stir to get an even consistency if needed.
Paint spice rack. Wash out brush and allow paint to dry fully.
Once paint is dry and not tacky the rack is ready for display!
Today after my paint dried I placed some of my shot glasses on to see how it looked. When I showed my boyfriend the rack I bought before I started my project he said “That looks good, you should be able to fit 7 glasses on each rack.” I really thought that was an odd number for him to say, but he was totally right. I was surprised when exactly 7 glasses fit on every rack!
