I have mentioned before that the sellers left a couple of different items in the house. For the most part, I am not head over heels in love with each one. That being said, I am also cheap. And discarding something that is free comes about as naturally as writing with my left hand (I’m a righty).
If I am ever in doubt of an item’s potential, I will always do the ONE THING that makes a dramatic difference and (oddly enough) is typically the cheapest–Paint it!
I didn’t take a spectacular “before” picture because I didn’t really have any plans for this towel rack, but I went ahead and painted it light blue on a whim.
When I started to take it apart, I didn’t realize just how “apart” it would get.
Once the spindles were painted I sprayed them with a finish to shine them up a bit. Not only was the spray necessary to keep the paint on the wood, but also because the paint had a matte finish and I wanted something with a little bit of a gloss.
I know this isn’t a huge change, but honestly, this little guy has went from the catchall for wet towels and wash clothes in a bathroom, to the bra stand in my bedroom. So, to him, this wasn’t just a cosmetic upgrade, this was a lifestyle upgrade.
Changing lives and bringing joy to inanimate objects–I do it because I care.
