I am so excited about this new summer series called transformation Tuesday, where I take one of the previous weeks garage sale finds from Friday and transform it into something amazing.
This week, all it took was a little spray paint to take a really old 70's looking storage hamper into something really awesome. Here's a glimpse at what it looked like before.
You won't believe how good the after looks!
Seriously! For only $1, this plastic dark wood hamper jumped into the next millennium with a coat of spray paint and about ten minutes.
All I did was wipe the hamper down with a wet rag. I took off the two screws that were holding the lid on and removed the top.
I always have white spray paint on hand because you never know what you are going to need it for. I love this Rust-Oleum satin paint with primer because it works on any surface, even plastic. Check out that nozzle. It sprays like a dream!
How much better does this storage container look now? Isn't it a great transformation?
I think the most important thing to remember when looking for an item to transform at a garage sale is to pay attention to it's lines. This one had great lines with that geometric pattern so I knew that it was going to turn out great. If you can get past the ugly duck first impression, you may end up with something awesome that you love!
