I very am fortunate that my awesome parents keep an eye out when passing kerbside cleanups!!
Last week they popped in for a cuppa and they bought with them this sweet quilt/ towel rack. It looked as though it had been out in the weather for some time but I could see straight away that there was hope in saving this cutie pie! Sharing a Kerbside Love – Re Purposed Quilt Rack story with you!
Kerbside Love – Re Purposed Quilt Rack
- Quilt/Towel Rack – I always see them at my local thrift store if you don’t stumble across one on the side of the road.
- Chalk Paint – I used a my own chalk mix but Fusion Mineral Paint would surely do the trick. The colors I used were Candy Pink and Milk.
- Paint Brush
- 120 grit sandpaper and sander
- chux cloth
- Transfer paper
- Americana Deco Art Lamp Black
- No 3 Round Brush
Step 1 – Give the whole piece a wipe down to remove dirt and cobwebs.
Step 2 – Using your choice of chalk paint as the base colour, paint 2 coats letting each coat dry in between. In this case for me it was the Candy Pink.
Step 3 – Using the lighter colour, in this case I used Milk paint a further 2 coats. Then using your sander go to town distressing until the under coat and the wood comes through.
