Befores and Afters

I picked this little book rack up at a "garage sale" that a store by our house was having. It was a dingy black and as one of the bloggers I was reading yesterday said "it needed a new dress." So I spray painted it an Antique White. As soon as I find my sewing room I will show you where I put it. It will hold my craft and pattern books. Looking good! This is a blue shelf I have had for a couple of years. I'm slow what can I say. Anyway--when I bought it at a church sale, it had a glass front door at the bottom but it was filled with beans and macaroni. Got rid of that and let it set for two years. Today I painted it the same Antique White and Mr. Ken is going to help me hang it on the wall above the bed in our guest room. Yea! Woo Hoo! ~Keep on Dreaming~

  5. I love your before and afters! You are so handy with the spray paint! I have a quilt project in the making for Mary's room makeover...first step was cleaning out the guest bedroom that is going to become her new bedroom (she wanted to move rooms since the little brothers got a new bedroom TWO years ago...see, I'm slow too!). Bedroom's been cleaned out...now to get started on the quilt!
