My rainy day project today was to try to pretty up this old typewriter stand that I picked up over the weekend. At first I thought I may use it as a rolling stand for my KitchenAid mixer so I could just wheel it over to the power cord in my kitchen. The wheels are not shown in this before shot, as they were with Henri getting a much needed shot of WD-40.
Since my mixer is silver in color, I had the idea to use some silver paint to lighten up the look of the stand and then decided a little gold would add a little zip to it too.
I really like this little pencil drawer.
And the embossed writing on the base reads "Pat. Applied For."
After I finished, I realized it would work well in our studio space too.
And it glides nicely on the painted concrete floors in case I want to use it for transporting 50# boxes of clay with ease.
