I didn't have a ton of time to work on projects last week. I cleared a path for our refrigerator to be brought in by the front door, down our long hallway, only to realize it wouldn't make the turn into the kitchen. That meant that I had to clear a path from the back door. Not such an easy task since there was a china cabinet in the way. So I proceeded to remove, wrap and box all my china and glassware. Move the cabinet and make room for the refrigerator to come through. Now I need to unpack, wash and replace everything. It will be so nice to get my house back in shape.
One project I did get done was to redo this large wooden magazine rack I found at a vintage sale a couple of weeks ago. It appears to be handmade by the way it is put together.
I decided to paint it pink with an off white interior. Here you can see the inside painted white.
And the outside pink.
I separated the top layer from printed napkins with roses and tore the roses from the napkin.
Using Mod Podge I adhered the napkins to the ends and sides of the dried painted wooden magazine rack.
Using the leftover pieces of the checkered background of the napkins I glued those randomly to the handle at the top.
Not sure how or where I want to use this piece. It is very large. I could get 2 rows of magazines in it side by side.
