Sprinkles Rack

Last week I found this spice rack at the thrift store for 2 dollars and, although I knew I did not need more storage for my glitter, embellishments and little things alike, I knew I should have it... 2 bucks with all the cute little glasses, I couldn't resist!

Driving home I already knew what to do with it!

Next day, straight to the hardware store to buy red spray paint...

This humble and despised spice rack was going to be revamped into a cute and very "necessary"  ( for whoever has a 4 year old who loves to help you in the kitchen, mainly at baking time...get it?)..

SPRINKLES RACK!


 First, I sanded it lightly 
 To  spray paint I like to put the object inside a cardboard box, and always outside..weather cooperated that day:0)
 Three coats later and sanding to give it a worn out look...( my husband ever understands this stage!)



 It was ready for the new colourful new inhabitants!!




Now it lives in its new home, in my kitchen ready  for my lil' one baking fun ( with mommy of course!)
Gotta run and buy more of Sofia's s spices" :0)

Should I write "Sofia's Spices" on it??
