Wrapping Up the Wire Dish Rack

Sharing is caring!

Today I am going to share a quick  piece I made from an old dish rack that had rusted up and I was ready to throw  out… but as usual inspiration struck!

I grabbed that old wire rack and took it  with me on my way to the farm.  This is where I do most of my painting, and of course I forgot to take a “before” picture.  So I have found a stock photo from Google (thank God for Google) to show you what it looked like before, just imagine it with lots of rust!

Σήμερα θα μοιραστώ ένα γρήγορο κομμάτι που έκανα από ένα παλιό καλάθι στραγγίσματος πιάτων που είχε σκουριάσει και ήταν έτοιμο για τα σκουπίδια … αλλά ως συνήθως η έμπνευση χτύπησε!

I painted it with a black rust proof spray paint, and as I was running out I did not do the best job, but I believe that is part of the charm.  Here is what it looked like after the paint. 

Το έβαψα με ένα μαύρο σπρέι, και όπως μου τελείωνε δεν είχα κάνει την καλύτερη δουλειά, αλλά πιστεύω ότι είναι μέρος της γοητείας. Εδώ είναι αυτό που έμοιαζε μετά την βαφή.

What to do next??  If any of you have been following me recently, you know that I have been in a wrapping frenzy.  And I had vowed to not do this any time soon… So what do I go ahead and do?  Wrap!!   Of course, it was much less painful this time around. 

Τι να κάνω στη συνέχεια;  Αν κάποιοι από εσάς με ακολουθείτε πρόσφατα, ξέρετε ότι είμαι σε μια  φάση μανία περιτυλίγματος. Και είχα ορκιστεί να μην το κάνω αυτό σύντομα … Λοιπόν, τι πάω και κάνω; Το τυλίγω !!  Βεβαίως, ήταν πολύ λιγότερο οδυνηρή αυτή τη φορά.

I wrapped the twine all around the top part of the wire rack.  And that was it.  I think it gives it a nice rustic feel without being heavy handed.  And like I said before, I was not perfect with the black paint so it has an old world charm.

Το τύλιξα με σπάγγο σε όλο το επάνω μέρος του καλαθιού. Και αυτό ήταν. Νομίζω ότι δίνει μια  ωραία ρουστίκ αίσθηση, χωρίς να είναι βαρύ. Και όπως είπα και πριν, δεν το έκανα τέλειο με το μαύρο χρώμα,  ώστε να έχει μια γοητεία περασμένων εποχών.

I tied the twine on the side and added a blackboard label that I had purchased from Micheal’s. 

Το έδεσα με σπάγγο  και πρόσθεσα μια ετικέτα του χρώματος μαύρη κιμωλία.

And after I finished it I decided to use it as a file holder.  

Και μετά που το τελείωσα αποφάσισα να το χρησιμοποιήσω ως βάση να  κρατάει  αρχεία  και φάκελα.
