Simple Custom Painted Magazine Rack
This vintage magazine rack was dropped off by my customer when she picked up her gorgeous custom Gray Painted Desk. She wanted her old wooden magazine rack freshened up to place by her fireplace. As you can see, it’s seen better days.
The magazine rack has unique details and pretty curves, it just needs a little freshening up. The entire piece was thoroughly sanded, which in turn created an abundance of dust. I always hear about furniture paint not requiring any prep, but I tend to err on the side of caution. Besides, I recently spoiled myself with a new shop vac, so my dusty mess is easily vacuumed up.
After sanding, the piece is then cleaned and painted in a cool gray with subtle blue undertones. You can find great quality furniture paint and stain online HERE. An added bonus, when painting furniture, you want to make sure to use a quality non-toxic furniture paint.
To get into the tight spaces and crevices I used my nifty little stubby brush, it’s small enough to get into those hard to reach places and corners.
Once painted, the magazine rack was distressed and sealed with a clear matte protective finish.
I’ll be sharing this post at these fabulous link parties.
