Look at these steps!
I grabbed my favorite chalk paint (FolkArt Chalk Paint) and got to work. I laid down a piece of contact paper to protect my craft table. I love contact paper because it will stick to the table without moving unlike newspaper and it easily pulls up. It’s cheap so I just throw it away when I’m done with it. The spice rack only needed one coat of chalk paint even as ugly as it was.
I have old bottles that I found with another spice rack that I decided to use for glitter. My girls can go through some glitter when they make their projects. Usually the glitter containers are super duper small or they are the shaker kind that don’t allow you to put excess glitter back in the container.
This is what I started with.
I tackled it with some chalk paint and what a difference!
Before and After photos!
This is the FolkArt Chalk paint and dark wax I used. Check out all the different FolkArt Chalk Paint colors they have here. I really like that light blue or pink color. I might have to change the color up after a while.
What a big difference just by adding a very small amount of the dark antique wax huh?!!
Once you apply the wax there is no way of getting it off. If you don’t like it you will need to paint over it. I would test it on a scrap sheet of wood before applying it to your final project just to see if you like it. I really like how it turned out.
Clean up time! I didn’t take the whole backing off the paper either. I just tore back the four corners to get it to stay in place. I love easy clean up!
I really like how much stuff it holds.
I was inspired to do another one. This one I just spray painted though. It took me about 3 minutes to spray paint it outside and the drying time was super fast.
This one doesn’t have as many spaces for stuff but it’s still very useful!
