Projects in waiting: 3 magazine caddy/holders.
1st is a Mid Century Modern Maple (heavy) Magazine Holder
I started working on this one out on the back deck, in the sunshine in September. Its November and I finally finished the job.
I thought I was going to use spray primer/paint for the whole job but the spindles as well as parts of the inside didn't get enough paint.
Some of the brown finish was not 'covered' with the Spray Krylon Primer (spray paint just doesn't do around corners and weird angles). I next used Rust-oleum Blossoming White spray paint before I gave in and finished this one with CeCe Caldwell Chalk-Clay paint 'Simply White' and clear wax. I love the satin look of waxed paint.
Next up is a white plywood magazine holder. I had wanted to try a stencilled word on the vintage 'someone's home project (1/2 plywood)' painted magazine holder. I used scotch tape to hold the letters in place and lined them up along a ruler. Used the smaller sponge with CeCeCaldwell Vermont Slate.
Evening light hides the bright white finish.
The two tier magazine holder was like painting chairs, lots of spindles and undersides. Used Kilz primer, spraying in the carport on the last day of 11 degree C (51.8 F).
You can see two projects as they were painted in my 'kitchen workshop', too late in the year to paint outside.
Waxed all the painted finishes. This two tier magazine holder was my favorite. I sponge sanded a few edges and curves before I waxed.
