Farmhouse Vegetable Stand

It's that time again! This month,  The Fab Furniture Flippin’ ContestTM is sponsored by  The Old Fashioned Milk Paint Co.TM.

Old Fashioned Milk Paint™ is environmentally friendly, non-toxic and produces an authentic colonial or shaker finish.  This paint is 100% green and all natural. It's a true casein-based milk paint with a lime binder. OFMP was the first paint in the U.S. to earn a USDA Bio-based certification meaning even the way it's manufactured is renewable and self-sustainable.

This month's theme is, "Farmhouse Fun" and it's the perfect match for something I needed to create! 

I found this blanket rack at a local flea market and was determined to flip it into a farmhouse vegetable stand for our kitchen. Especially now during the peak of garden season. Imagine a veggie stand... farm style in the kitchen. Crazy fun, isn't it? 

I started with removing the top rod and replacing it onto the bottom of the rack. Then, cleaning the blanket rack and giving it a coat of Milk Paint Extra-Bond for painting. Because I didn't sand to keep the stain and finish for distressing purposes, the milk paint adheres with the bonding agent.

Disclosure: The OFMP Company generously supplied products to each participant for this contest. I received two powdered pints of the ‪‎Old Fashioned Milk Paint, one container of Daddy Van's Wax, and bottle of  Extra-Bond.  Although this post is considered sponsored, all opinions are 100% my own.
After the Extra-Bond dried, I painted the rack with one coat of Snow White OFMP, followed by a coat of Oyster White OFMP. (tinted slightly with a bit of gray) 

When thoroughly dried, I distressed the rack and drew on farm images on each side panel. 
Finally, applied Daddy Van's Antique Brown Wax over the distressed areas and giving the stand an old "used around the farm" look. 
Then the fun part! Finished off the veggie and fruit stand with wire baskets! Added the yummy goods and done! 

Have an apple or grab those veggies to make dinner all Farmhouse style! It's a super space for storage. 

It's a fun and farmhouse style to keep produce without cluttering up the counters. Having this kind of storage is just kitchen satisfaction! Easy access for cooking and eating. I have another blanket rack. But that will be turned into a saddle rack. Repurposing and paint certainly makes needed things new and functional without breaking the budget. It's furniture flippin fun! 
So, back to the details of The Fab Furniture Flippin' Contest!
