Vintage Magazine Holder To Repurposed Rolling Pin Display


I ran across this garage sale, vintage, maple magazine rack in my shed this week.  I also came up with a re-purposing idea.

I washed the magazine holder down with hot, soapy, Dawn dish soap water and a rag, and painted it with two coats of my favorite black, Dixie Belle Chalk Finish Paint in Caviar. 

After painting the magazine holder, I stenciled it with "Pies ~ Cupcakes" on one side and "Cupcakes ~ Cookies" on the other side of the handle, using my BAKERY stencil from Old Sign Stencils.  

I chose Dixie Belle's Sawmill Gravy as stencil my stencil paint.

I then distressed the magazine rack's edges with 220 grit sandpaper, and waxed it with Dixie Belle Big Mama's Butta .  I used both a wax brush and a fiber rag.

The magazine holder was perfect for stacking and displaying my rolling pin collection.
