I am a big fan of making old things look new. Here is another one of my thirfty finds made new.
I was wondering around one of my favorite thrift store the other day when I came the beauty!! I knew immediately that I could probably give it new life.

  • How to make furniture. Diy Book Caddy - Step 1
    Step 1

    Today I am going to show you how I turned a cheap thrift store magazine rack into a cute book caddy for my little girls bedroom.
    My little one is just starting to really love reading books. The only problem is that she loves to read the same books over.... and over...... and over again....... I decided that we needed a book caddy to allow quick access to her favorite books of the month.
    So far it has worked great!

    These pictures sort of make the before caddy look good. In reality though the paint was chipping and the coloring was somewhere between gold and bronze.

    I first painted it using a can of flat black spray paint, and yes it took the whole can. This was my first time using flat spray paint and I have to say that I really like the result.

    After I let the black spray paint dry I taped off the bottom of the feet and used some gold spray paint to add a little accent.

    I really like the contrast that I got from the shiny feet vs. the flat paint on the rest of the piece.
