$8.00 Wine Rack!

I picked this little guy up at a re-store for get ready ladies and gents.....$8.00!!!! I needed something to put under my plates collague in my kitchen and this was just the ticket.

Step by Step Instructions

1.) Pick out your furniture you would like to update.

2.) Fill in any holes or scratches with wood filler.

3.) Sand it down and make sure you clean it really well.

4.) Paint with primer paint. I used a brush to get into all the little places, then a small sponge roller on all the places that are possible (the roller makes a really nice finish on furniture)

5.) WAIT unitl it is completely dry.

6.) Painting time! Paint with whatever colour that tickles your fancy. Paint again with a brush in the small spots and a sponge roller on the larger areas.

7.) Stock with your favorite wine and display your wine glasses, sit down, have a drink!

All you need is:
 Piece of furniture
 Sand paper
Primer Paint
Sponge Roller
Wood Filler ( If needed)
