Rolling PIN Holder and Cabinet Remake


Here is one of my latest auction makeovers.
I won this cute little old, sturdy wine and glass stand at the auction for only $2.00. I call it an awesome rolling pin holder instead.

First for the makeover I lightly sanded it all over with a medium grit sandpaper.  Then wiped it clean with a damp rag.

Then I gave it a good coat of Rustoleum brand spray paint in the ALMOND color from Lowes.
For the top, I let it dry and did a second coat of paint.

Then after drying for about 6 hours, I got out some light grade sandpaper and began to rough up the edges.


I wanted to give it a better finish but still look like it had been around a while and used.
So the edges really looks way better when you do this.

And it was starting to look pretty good after about 15 minutes or so.

 Here is a closeup of the side leg.
 These are meant for holding glasses just under the top, but I'm not sure yet what I'm going to display there. Maybe nothing if I can't find something to look right with rolling pins in the bottom.

In the full size pics like below, you can't see all the details, but they are there.

I like it 99% better than the before photo, what about ya'll?


And I had also gotten a wall cabinet too.
I can't find my before picture of it, but here it is after I cut out the doors and added chicken wire.

 This cabinet had solid wood doors on it before.

I won it at the auction for only $5.00.

I asked my husband to go cut the doors out.

And then I just stapled on some chicken wire from the inside.

Look close above the cabinet. I made a fake clothes line with string and bits of cut fabric.


The cabinet looks way better and so much more country now!

I didn't have to paint it. I just left it the old original color.
I priced this chicken wire door cabinet for $19.99 in my booth.
And it has already sold.
Thank you!

See ya'll next time,

Old Jelly Cabinet Remake


This isn't the average kind of post that I usually do about crafts. But I think this falls in the lines of a before and after project. So here goes.

I saved this old jelly cub-bard? when it was headed to the landfill. I knew it had potential of some sort. The front only had a hole the size of a lemon at first. But I didn't remember until hammering out most of the top, to snap a before pic. So basically, here it is before:
I finished knocking out the old thin board and I replaced it with chicken wire. The rest of it, except for the top and bottom of the door, is basically all solid wood. I purchased the chicken wire at a hardware and tractor supply store.

I just snipped the wire with wire cutters, while holding it up, to get the basic size. Then, I stapled it into place with a heavy duty stapler. And then did some more snipping of the edges of the wire to make it more neat. That was basically it.

And here's the finished cabinet below.
I wish I'd gotten a better picture of it, cause it does look a little better in person lol. Well, I think so anyways. And I decided to just leave the old flowery wall paper on the inside. Well, for now anyways.

Happy Crafting!
