My husband and I always seemed to order magazine subscriptions from our friend’s older kids. We actually have some pretty good ones. I love flipping through them on my spare time. Even though our world is saturated with digital information, I will always love the feel of actual magazine (or book) pages. I went to a local Goodwill the other day and found this old wooden magazine rack. It was not my style, but I could definitely use it. So, here is my quick and easy thrift store magazine rack upcycle.
Time: 45 Minutes (including drying time)
- Wooden Magazine Rack
- Krylon Chalky Finish Spray Paint in Slate
Here is the BEFORE picture of the magazine rack. I purchased it for $6.99. That was a steal, considering one like this starts at $30.00. When I got it home the first thing I did was dust it off because it was quite dirty.
I took my time with this one. I spread out newspapers outside and sprayed two light coats, waiting fifteen minutes in between coats. I did a final third touch up for any areas I missed.
When my husband first saw it, he hated it, but once I painted it and put it by the recliner in our bedroom I got a, “hey, that actually looks pretty good!” Not bad for a few bucks.
