I know, it’s been a while since I posted anything. I’ve been busy!! I’ll try to do better.
I needed a few small wall shelves for my craft room. I found some very cheap ($5/each) used wooden shelves to recycle into what I wanted. I quickly changed my mind after I got them home. I could use a wall-mounted dispenser more than shelves. Something that could hold all the supplies I use that came on a roll, like various tapes, wax paper, plastic wrap, foil, etc. This is what I came up with. I hope you like it.
The shelves were very heavy for their size and made from a wood composite material…not sure what considering the age of them.
I recycled the metal cutter strips from the boxes all the rolls came in.
I love chalk paint. It covers almost any surface, no priming of raw wood, and it can be finished with a clear coat of Polycrylic or wax.
Check YouTube for DIY videos on how to make your own soft clear finishing wax (beeswax pellets + baby oil) and how to tint the wax with any unique color you may need.
The Rack turned out even prettier than I imagined!
A friend discovered my unfinished Rack-n-Roll on the workbench and wanted it. I finished the Rack in the manner requested (with black wax). I now need to make another for myself maybe with more racks! Good thing I made a pattern, huh.
