The title of this post reminds me of a children’s storybook title, but really I just wanted to share how much I love spray paint! It truly allows you to transform anything you already have in your home that just needs a bit of updating.
I received my record player as a Christmas gift from *Santa* a few years ago, but i never had anywhere to put it, so it stayed on my dresser for a while and I kept my records just in a drawer somewhere. I just didn’t know what kind of record cabinet I wanted to have! The other week I was browsing some Facebook yard sale pages and I came across this mini record cabinet! Although I was fairly worried it was going to be too short to realistically use, it was the perfect height once I put my record player on top. I searched around the internet for cabinets similar to this one and I found this one & also this one.
Updating this piece was so easy! I took off the doors and set them aside. I used a piece of sandpaper we had lying around our basement and I roughed up the top and sides of the cabinet. I bought a can of Rustoleum white semi-gloss spray paint I bought at Home Depot (okay, it really took me 2 cans of spray paint) and began to spray away! The important thing to keep in mind with spray paint is not to spray too much paint in one area at a time, otherwise it could begin to build up and form drips. Just do light coats and continue to spray until the entire piece is evenly covered. After that was done I cleaned off the doors and replaced the knobs (you can buy the knobs here).
I’ve actually used spray paint in many areas of our home! Here are a few pictures of other pieces I’ve updated/transformed with a can of spray paint:
