One project I did was turning my boring spice rack that was given to us for our wedding shower into something not so boring.
First make sure you clean it off really good then take it completely apart!
There you have it! It's not perfect. It has some spots where I missed (on purpose). I don't like things to look 'neat' and like it came out of a magazine. I don't like to be 'original'. If you don't want any spots then be sure to paint it evently all over!
