Revamp a magazine rack

Yet another bargain find, our old magazine rack looks great after a few coats of Rust-Oleum Painter’s Touch in purple gloss. Giving a spritz of paint to household objects and accessories is a fantastic way of injecting colour into a neutral room. This rich, vibrant gloss is elegant and perfect for a quiet corner where you can sit and catch up on reading your Homemaker magazines!

  • Revamp a magazine rack
You’ll need
    • Magazine rack
    • Rust-Oleum Painter’s
    • Touch spray paint
    • Rust-Oleum Surface
    • Primer (where necessary)
    • Newspaper/dust sheets
    • Masking tape
    1. Move the magazine rack to a well-ventilated area and place on top of newspaper or a dust sheet. Mask off any areas that are not to be painted. Protect the surrounding surfaces with additional dust sheets or newspaper.

    2. Ensure places to be painted are free from loose paint, rust, wax, oil and grease. Previously painted surfaces should be abraded to provide a key. Bare wood should be primed with Rust-Oleum Surface Primer.

    3. Hold the can approximately 30cm from the surface of your magazine rack and spray in a steady back and forth motion, slightly overlapping with each stroke. For best results, whilst spraying, keep the can the same distance from the surface and keep in motion. Apply several light coats a few minutes apart.
