A quick and easy yard sale makeover with Krylon

As I mentioned last month, I joined a group of 11 bloggers and the Krylon team at the World's Longest Yard Sale. In just a few days, the Krylon team traveled several states along the route and transformed 127 pieces for their first ever Pinterest yard sale benefiting Charity Wings Arts & Crafts Center.

The Krylon team asked us to join the fun and shared their products so we too could refinish the yard sale find of our choice.

Let me introduce you to the $4 luggage stands. Luggage stands have always been on my wish list for the guest room, so when I stumbled upon these for $2 each at a yard sale, I had to scoop them up. I knew a mini makeover would take these from dated and chipped to just like new.

To be honest, while I'm passionate about home styling, I'm not really a hardcore DIYer. I occasionally tackle simple DIY projects, but avoid any large undertakings. I think it's because I'm impatient. I like easy and done projects.

When I saw these luggage stands, I knew they would be a simple DIY I could tackle in 30 minutes, especially with the right Krylon product. To give the stands a facelift, I purchased new trim from Hobby Lobby and worked with the Krylon team to select a glossy black paint.

Within seconds, the stands went from nicked and old to glossy and fabulous. I loved the SUPERMAXX product because it only takes 25 minutes to dry to the touch. Plus, no standing or priming is required.

After the stands dried, I removed the old straps that looked aged and used a staple gun to secure a new greek key pattern.

Within minutes, the stands were like new again!

I added these to the foot of the bed in our guest room to give our family and friends a place to drop their belongings.

On a separate note, I'm looking forward to switching this room up a bit. Up until this point, we've used pieces we had leftover from the condo and haven't really purchased anything new. I plan to take cues from the black and start swapping items out for a refresh. Perhaps those lamps will be the next to get a Krylon makeover! 

A special thank you to Krylon for supplying SUPERMAXX for this project!

  1. I have ALWAYS wanted luggage racks for my home! I can't tell you the number of places I have stayed in and wished they had them, too!


I love hearing from you! It makes my day. Really, it does!
