Easy Wine Rack and Chair Re-do.

Part of the reason I haven't been blogging is because I moved in August and we still don't have internet. Crazy. I know. We have hijacked our neighbors for now. (Don't tell her!) BUT I have also been doing a ton of projects. I am always on the hunt for something to paint or repurpose. Thrifts stores, clearance sections, craigslist, yard sales and estate sales. You name it.

On a thrift store hunt I found this little gem for $6.99. Yup. Dirt.Cheap.

It was in excellent condition and came with a perfect piece of glass on top. My roommate was like "Ummm it's kinda ugly" and I was like "Ain't nothing a little spray paint can't fix, boo."
I had the perfect spot for it in our new little place. 
That was that. In the buggy it went. -Am I the only person that says buggy?-
I chose red spray paint. I really wanted it to stand out against our white-ish, yellow walls.
I painted her, let her dry and set her up inside.


Isn't it pretty?! The whole project cost me, maybe ten bucks. Seriously. One of my favorites. I know she only has one sad little wine bottle in the picture, but we keep her pretty full now!

My roommate had a chair that she used with her vanity and it was pretty rough. The seat was coming off, it had like 37 layers of fabric on it and it was really stained. I had some extra burlap and suggested that we recover it. A couple of staples and a little bit of fabric later, we got this...

Before and after.

The chair itself was in good condition so we didn't even bother painting it. It looks super cute with her vanity! The best part of this was that it was totally free! Woot.

I have several more projects to share. Seriously. Nightstands, lamps, a dresser, no-sew curtains and a pallet wine rack that you don't want to miss!

Happy Thursday!

I love the wine rack and chair! I have so many ideas for projects but I just never do them. I need to get better about that this year! I cant wait to see what else you have done! Maybe you will inspire me to get more crafty!?
