paint love

i did finally finish (well, with much help from the hubs) my music cabinet.  hope to have finished photos in the next day or so.

i've been busting out a few random pieces here and there.  here is a vintage brass magazine rack that was thrown in on a pile of items i purchased at an estate auction.  figured i could breath new life into it buy giving it a funky new color.Metal mag rack1

here i tried to give a close up of the simple criss cross design.

i love this spray paint by Rust-oleum Ultra cover 2X the coverage!  i definately recommend it.  half the time in working and LOVE the QUALITY! :)

Metal mag rack4

i figured it might get a little abused with mags and books being thrown into it so i coated it with Minwax Clear Laquer (found this stuff on clearance for $2, score!).

i think it turned out fun/funky and hope to find it a good home soon. :)

Metal mag rack5

Very cool! I like the color a lot. I'm am currently working on a spice cabinet that was my Mom's it is probably from the 60's. It is not very pretty right now, but I plan on painting it and then using crackle on it. My plan is to use it in my scrapbook room for my brads and eyelets. It has the coolest bottles that was for the spices.
