I love Walter’s use of his own illustrations in his work. He’s done it again by turning a spice rack into a DIY book rack (I spy polka dots and I likey). Here’s the tutorial below.
I know a lot of people don’t have the time or equipment to make some of my projects. But don’t overlook items you can buy that need some assembly like the kind found at IKEA and Home Depot. The Home Depot has a section of quality Kids’ Workshop items. I kid you not. I love books, especially vintage kids’ books. I feel it is very important to read to children! I made this really cute Bunny Book Holder from a spice rack kit, which comes with very detailed and EASY assembly instructions. This is how I made it.
This is what you get in your spice rack package:
• 2 Ends
• 1 Back
• 2 Dowels
• 1 Bottom
• 8 Nails
I Primed all the pieces with FolkArt paint (French Blue).
Next, I decoupaged all the primed pieces with two types of polka dotted paper and the ends of the spice rack with a bunny illustration I created
• Use any type of Mod Podge and let dry for at least 15 minutes.
Then I gathered all the items needed for assembly.
• Nails (included with kit)
• Small Hammer
Lay out all the pieces for assembly. Follow the simple instructions; trust me it was so easy! Then seal with FolkArt Varnish. Project completed!
This spice rack turned bunny book holder can be attached to a wall, perfect for a nursery. Or, you can also use it on the top of a chest of drawers. Very cute!
