Love Affair

My love affair with spray paint continues. I had been on a white gloss kick but for this particular project, I went with black gloss. About a year ago my in-laws gave us this wine rack. They had it in their house, but then got an island that had built ins for wine, so they no longer needed the rack. This is not something I would pick out myself but I was more than happy to take this off their hands. I was super excited to have a large rack to store all my beloved wine. I have been wanting to paint this rack for awhile but couldn't commit to a color. I was really leaning towards white gloss (my obsession) again but thought it might not really go with my dining room color and decor, so I ultimately decided on the black gloss. I love it, it makes the wine rack feel like a new piece. Our dining room kind of opens up to our kitchen, so I really like how the black wine rack now matches our black granite countertops. The color ties the two rooms together. I really think the white would have been too light against my gray walls. This project only took two cans of black spray paint and about 2.5 coats. Spray paint is such a quick and cheap way to update your old furniture.

We finally bought our Christmas tree this weekend, so I have been in full force decorating mode, hence the tree on the wine rack!
