It was a fabulous spring weekend here. Well, actually it felt more like summer. Lucky us! 🙂
I’m talking warm breezes and beautiful blue skies, and we couldn’t get enough of being outside.
This warm weather also means that spray painting season has finally arrived. Yay!
My first candidate of the season is this vintage spice rack with the lovely ironwork doors.
I shared this in a thrifted finds post a long time ago.
I thrifted this one for $2.
Unlike this other vintage spice rack that I gave a makeover some time ago, which was made of 70s plastic resin, today’s is make of wood.
While it’s been waiting for its makeover I’ve been using it in my craft room to store some of my collection of small salt and peppers.
Rationally I know these should probably be hanging in the kitchen, but when I think of doing that it just doesn’t feel right… right now anyway. I spend a lot of time in my craft studio and I love looking at them.
So as long as they’re bringing me joy they’re staying right where they are. Plus some of them just might be used in projects some day.
I took it outside into the glorious warm sunshine and gave it two light coats of Krylon Fusion white.
Here’s the before again.
And the after. I love that you can see some of the grain of the wood through the paint.
And here it is with the other spice rack I mentioned earlier.
There’s nothing that a couple of coats of white paint can’t fix, and that’s coming from a girl who does love colour. But I love colour with fresh doses of white here and there. It just makes everything look so fresh.
I’m sure our temps will go back down to seasonal, but we’re loving this warmth while it’s here.
I hope you had a lovely warm weekend too! 🙂
Thanks so much for reading, and until next time… keep on keepin’ on.
