Vintage Metal Magazine Rack Revamp

Well, it is official, after a year and a half my guest room is complete. I will show you the room in its entirety later this week.  ROOM REVEAL ALERT!  Woo hoo! The last and final touch was a little magazine rack I found at the same auction I got the vintage sheet that I made into a skirt, and the little chevron stool.  It was very tarnished but I loved the vintage metal look and thought it would be a great place to store my decor magazines.  Spray paint to the rescue!

Supplies:

Rust-Oleum Clean Metal Primer

Krylon Coral Isle

Valspar Gold Spray Paint (found a Lowes)

3M Fine/Medium Sanding Sponge

Scotch Blue tape

1.  This magazine rack had been neglected for years and not only was it tarnished it had developed raised rust spots on it.  So I took a 3M Fine/Medium Sanding Sponge and sanded it all down smooth.  I cleaned well with a damp rag and taped off the wood handle.

2.  Next I applied Rust-Oleum Clean Metal Primer to all the metal to prep it for the paint.

3.  I applied Krylon Coral Isle to the patterned metal and Valspar Gold spray paint to the base.

4.  After that I applied Howard Restor-A-Finish in Walnut to the handle.

And now it fits perfectly in my guest room and gives my guests something to flip through before they fall asleep.  Although, lets be honest, my house is so fun they probably fall right to sleep each night. :-)

    Love the two tone! Most people would have just spray painted that whole magazine rack but it looks amazing with the coral, gold, and wood!
