I am happy to share this makeover post with you today. I came upon this circa 70's magazine rack at the local New 2 U Resale store benefiting the Meals on Wheels program of Comal County. You can read about that thrift trip here.
Its a cute little magazine rack; but was a bit wobbly and dirty; so minor repair was needed. I proceeded to take it apart piece by piece. It wasn't difficult at all. So after giving it a good wipe down with a damp cloth; I allowed it sufficient time to dry.
Now comes the part I am most excited about. I received a complimentary sample of Farmhouse Paint to try. This is the very first complimentary product I have ever received. It is relatively new to the market; so I consider it a privilege to try it and blog about it. First of all, I'd like to say this paint is wonderful. The manufacturers promote it as: "No Prep Work Needed"; "No Wax or Topcoat Needed"; "Ultimate Adhesion * Easy to Apply * Water Clean Up". I can honestly say this is the easiest painting method I have personally tried to date. After working with primer, oil based paint, homemade chalky paint, latex paint and wax; this came in 1st place in my book. And... I love the color!
There are several colors available; and I'm looking forward to my next larger project in the coming weeks. As you can see in the after picture.... I did not distress this piece at all. It did require new washers and screws to eliminate the wobbliness. My honey, and the great folks at Home Depot gave me a good education in that area; so a shout out to TJ and my local Home Depot (New Braunfels, TX). I would also like to thank the folks at Farmhouse Paint for allowing me the opportunity to try their product.
