Happy Monday, friends. I hope you all had a great weekend. Here, at Thrifty to Nifty, it was a weekend to complete some simple and easy projects. My favorite was a Magazine Rack Makeover
Today, I am going to share this favorite makeover that was so simple. I’m not sure why it took me so long to complete. I found this great magazine rack on a resale site and I knew it had potential.
This is exactly how I found it. Someone took the time to prime it but must not have gotten around to completing the task. The detail on the front and those cute little legs just caught my eye. Home it came with me but sat for a while. Going through my stash this past weekend, resurfaced this project. I was bound and determined to freshen it up.
The easiest way…. a quick makeover with a can of spray paint.
Bam! No more ugly brown. Welcome a new, fresh, gorgeous, magazine rack.
This paint color is Heirloom White by Rust-Oleum
Searching my many many cans of paint, I decided to go with white. Having few cans of Rust-Oleum Heirloom White, help me make the decision. Just in case it was a difficult piece to cover completely, I knew I would have backup. To my surprise, I only used one can. The previous owner saved me a can or two by priming it first.
I just love the detail of this piece. The white paint really freshens up this outdated magazine rack and give a perfect makeover.
I cannot begin to explain my complete joy of this makeover. To think this has been sitting unused for some time disappoints me. It’s storage and beauty wrapped into one. A definite keeper for my home.
A fast and easy makeover. I can’t complain!

It’s such a pretty piece. I love how it turned out. I am a magazine hoarder so I’d have it completely filled up with magazines at my house! Love the color!

The details are amazing and the end result is so beautiful. I use spray paint often on small jobs, but I’ve never used it on a piece of furniture and I have to say that I’m extremely impressed. Such a beauty! You always seem to find the best pieces to redo and bring back to life.

Give it a try, Alli. Probably not a large piece but for something that would be quick, spray paint works great!
