A few weeks ago I picked up this old baker’s rack at a yard sale for $4. It was greasy and dirty, but those were minor problems. For the price, I just couldn’t pass it up. I decided to use it as a potting bench/storage rack for my patio.
The green and gold finish wasn’t what I wanted at all, so I got out the paint and dry brushed white over the entire rack. I hated it. You could still see the green and the horrible gold shadowing threw. Yuck! I got a tad bit more aggressive. I continued to dry brush and pounce the paint until I was happy with the coverage. I think it was a total of about four coats. I could have painted with strokes of the brush, but I kinda liked the texture of the dry brushing and pouncing.
Light bulb moment! I cut and attached braces (similar to studs in a wall).
I have a few more things to complete on my new outdoor space, but I will be sharing the results soon.
