Chelsea found this gem at a local swapper's day right outside Columbus, Ohio (I think we can all agree that sounds like paradise). She tells us she saw this little retro magazine rack from a distance and "immediately redirected my steps towards this great piece." We sure know how it feels to be pulled to a project and luckily this one only cost a buck!

This subtle fix was as simple as some spray paint. Great find!

From Chelsea:

The shape was great and, while it was a little beat up and dull, I knew it had great bones. With a little clean up and a nice coat of shiny black Rustoleum this piece came to life again. The perfect place for storing the most recent issues of my favorite lifestyle magazines. The best part? The $1 price tag. For such a great piece- we didn't even have to haggle!

Thank you Chelsea!
