Plate Rack Table

I just got this cute little table for FREE!  Pretty good price if I do say so myself!  My sis gave it to me, of course I had to do a little painting, lol!  Here she was before:
I am pretty sure the slates are for plates, right?  Well see, some of the dowels are missing, so I popped them out of the outer edges and put them in the middle.  Then I made the DIY chalk paint (1 cup latex paint + 1tbsp unsanded grout) and coated the baby!  Those little dowelie things are no joke to paint!   Good thing I was going to shab it out anyway!  The first coat I mixed was lighter than the second...I used the same paint but... I uh... didn't mix it up really well!  (Totally on purpose right?)
Originally my plan was to put this in the shop, but I kind of fell in love.  I think I need this in my house!
Do you do that with your little projects too?


  1. Totally cute! I love that color...It would look good in my house too. And yes, I would have a hard time selling my projects. So much time and talent go into them, I want to look at them often!

    1. Well I wasn't really feeling this piece to begin with, so the time talent thing don't really match, lol! I just slapped that paint on!
