Inspired by Milka, Erika, Debbie and other bloggies, I've done my bit help protect the earth. Weeks ago my neighbor disposed an used wooden rack for whoever's take- away. I took it and put in my yard for plants. It's wood color that I don't like much and decided to have a facelift.
鄰居把舊木架放置門外讓有心人取用, 我拿回家擺在平台作花架, 但又不大愛原木色, 於是加點心思, 為環保出點力又可有點攪作, 於是把架子做一次簡單翻新.
This is the finished look. I love it. 我愛這完成後的樣子.
This original wood color with liquar is not easily covered with new paint.
Though I used sand paper to polish before putting new paint. I gave up and just used the leftover of my wall paint. I put on 3-4 layers, that's fine.
The top indeed was amended but still safe enough. I wanted to have something to hide the joint and make it nicer.
My ceramic tutor CC of Pottery Stall was so nice to give me a lovely decoupage napkin paper. I put it on with Mod Podge glue and finished with it all over the rack. Here's the remake. I put it in my holiday studio flat as a book shelf.
Should I put it beside the TV cabinet ?
Or put it on the other side? Well, it seems right here and matches the wall color and the wall I painted .
After I stumbled into Milka's blog of hallway, I found her way of making the wall is great. So lovely with birds and tree. It's a good reference if I've other chance of changing my wall.
