Baker’s Rack Becomes a French Beauty

Baker’s Rack Becomes a French Beauty

Short and Sweet
I'm popping in here to show you a little project I just finished – you can find similar "before" pieces around and about as people often sell these at garage sales and second hand shops. Most people think that if you want to upgrade you must get rid of the old and buy new. Not true.
 
Here is a BEFORE picture of her when she was just plain "Rachel":

"Rachelle" began her life as "Rachel," an average nondescript baker's rack.

But she was renamed the French beauty, Rachelle after her amazing transformation. I am always in awe when I see the after affects of a little paint and some TLC.

Simple Update – Big Change
After updating her with Rustoleum Espresso 2X Painter's Touch spray paint, a satin clear spray topcoat also by Rustoleum on the metal body and French hand stenciling, with Zar oil based topcoat on the shelf. Now she's ready to get to work!

  1. It looks so much better with the darker finish!  The paint you chose gives it a classier and more modern look–I love it!
