My ugly printer stand

This is my printer stand:

Before
(yep those were my documents out of their files today,
I had to make a doctors appointment
for Eva and find a babysitter for Friday night)

I decided to paint it so I sanded it down just enough for paint to stick I used a 150 grit




I spray painted the flat parts grey then painted the edges all lighter gray. I used a bristle brush and it was two coats. I really like the fresh new look. Its funny because its exactly the same colors as my printer.


After


Yeah I laid the computer down it gets better ventilation that way and it fits on my printer stand.

I say paint everything.
Well not everything just the really ugly things that you have to live with anyway.

You are so clever Miriam. I have no imagination like that.

Thats a great work station. I need to find some sort of high place for my printer. Right now my printer sits on my filing cabinet. I've been thinking of painting some of my ugly furniture. I used to think it was nice years ago hahaha.

My sander cost me $30 great investment even if you just do two pieces, sanding by hand sometime has to happen with awkward pieces but yeah that sander is the BEST
