This simple project took many, many coats of spray paint! Next time, I'll probably use black spray paint.
You will need:
- Wire Brush
- Metal Cooling Rack
- Primer Spray Paint for Metal
- Spray Paint for Metal in the color of your choosing
- Clear Top Coat Spray Paint
- Small Clothespins
Look for racks with thin grates.
Clean the rack, then use a wire brush to rough up the metal surfaces. Wipe away any fragments with an old t-shirt.
Follow the manufacturer instructions to prime the rack. After it's dry, spray with colored spray paint. Use multiple, light coats. Let dry.
Spray with a topcoat to protect the paint. Let set for at least 48 hours.
Cut a small length of ribbon. Tie both ends to the top rung of the rack. Hang on the wall.
Use small clothespins to attach pictures. I found these black clothespins in the Target dollar section. I sanded each clothespin to give them an "aged" look.
