So it was time to whip out the spray paint. Since a lot of my things in the living room are black, then naturally this would be as well. I chose glossy black spray paint to use on this piece. Sorry I once again forgot to take a before picture. I have got to remember to do this, someone needs to give me a swift kick in the behind on it to remember.
Here is the finished product:
Since on this bakers rack the shelves (all except the large middle one) are not solid I decided I needed to make them solid for display purposes. Once again I used simply things I had around the house. For the first two shelves I cut pieces of cardboard and covered it using a couple of white curtains with lovely cut work detailing. For the bottom two larger shelves I used white poster board (which I already had on hand) sprayed both of them with adhesive spray and layed black lace over them both. Once dried I cut the lace to fit the posterboard. Now they make perfect semi solid ways of displaying our favorite pictures and knick knacks.
