Quick & Easy!

Sometimes projects can be tedious.  Sometimes they can be never-ending.  Sometimes projects can drain your will to continue.

Again, not a life-altering transformation.  But for a cheap antique store find, plus the can of half-used spray paint I had in my garage already, our newest kitchen accessory is lookin’ good.  What you’re looking at is 3 coats of flat black spray paint + 1 layer of clear spray paint sealant.  Sealant was not really necessary, but I like to use it to increase durability and longevity.

And of course the functionality is great.

By the way, the cookbook above is the best.cookbook.ever.  If you consider yourself a cook, but don’t have the Betty Crocker Cookbook, your life {and kitchen} are incomplete.  Just sayin’.

One more before and after:

I must say, I’m so very happy with the result.  Say it with me — “Spray paint is a game changer.”
