One of My Latest Projects!



I found this interesting magazine rack at an Estate Sale for $3.00.  It was all wood and in good shape - just not too pretty.


So, I cleaned it up and lightly sanded it.  I painted it black.


I had this lovely calendar and cut out this floral design from one page of the calendar.  The pink and white background is just a piece of scrapbook paper I put behind it so you could see the cut out when I got thru.



I then used Mod Podge and decoupaged the floral print to the front of the magazine rack.  I think it turned out really pretty.

I put it beside my dark brown leather recliner but it didn't show up at all.  So, I took the finished product out to my "photography studio" and took a picture of it.  I think I need to get either a bird's nest with eggs or one of the green moss bunnies to sit on the little front ledge, don't you?

Enjoy!

  5. "That turned out great, Judy. That looks a married piece, don't you think? Like someone had a magazine rack and maybe wanted it taller by a chair so it was easier to get to? I think a little bird's nest on the ledge would be perfect. I LOVE how those flowers pop against the black. xo Diana

  6. What a fabulous result with those flowers on the background, you could stop there as it is really beautiful, but yes, a birds nest, even more delightful!

  23. What a cute little piece, Judy! I've never seen a magazine holder like this one before. I love its new look. I think one of my favorite makeovers was a magazine holder I found at an antique mart that I also painted black and then added some French stencils in white.
