DIY Spray Painted Magazine Rack Planter
Even artificial flowers make me smile.
The wood magazine rack has been in my work shop forever.
Every time I spotted it (under all the junk) in he shop I would think about a flower planter/pot.
The plan was to paint it turquoise and display some bright, bright yellow tulips in it.
My first step was to spray a base color before applying the turquoise paint.
I started with three cans of spray paint that were almost empty….gray, white, and yellow.
I didn’t even get the wood covered completely before all three cans of paint were empty.
The yellow ended up being my last coat of paint.
I started the project on Sunday afternoon and when I got home from school yesterday I went down to the workshop to finish it up.
I liked the yellow paint and I had the pink artificial tulips from my Guthrie flea market shopping trip….so change of plans.
The tulips were $1.50.
They weren’t quite full enough so I found a greenery bush in the shop to add to the planter.
Grabbing the magazine flower planter I headed for the front porch.
Well the wheels/cart base were still on the porch from my Christmas display.
Hey, it’s just March….don’t give me any flack.
Any way, that little magazine rack fit right down onto those wheels….fate.
The display looks petty good on the dining room table too.
Oh, I forgot about the burlap.
I taped a small piece of burlap to the inside of the magazine rack to cover the cut-out opening.
And that’s it…what do ya’ll think?
It really is easy to find things around the house to use in a unique way.
Have a great day, Kathy
