Bathroom Corner Shelf Re-Do

I don’t know if I’m frugal, cheap or just hate throwing things away that can be saved.  I’m stubborn Irish, so I guess it’s more of the latter.  This Summer, I’ve been doing a lot of little repairs around the house while the weather has been nice.  This is one of those projects.

I love this little corner shelf that has been in my bathroom since we first moved in.  That was 21 years ago & it was starting to show rust & a lot of wear.

I searched online for a new one.  The only place that I could find one was on Walmart’s site.  They only had one left & it was on sale.  The List Price was $109.47 from Bed Bath n More and on sale for $33.74.  Did I really want to order a new one & spend money when I knew I could save it?  ummm, no.

The shelving unit is chrome, so I figured a little S.O.S. would help to get rid of the rust.  It did get rid of most of the rust, but I knew it had to be sealed to prevent more rust from forming.

The shelves were a little rusty, too.

I chose my favorite spray paint to seal the shelves & pole, Rust-Oleum.  I wanted to keep the chrome look, so I used the Silver.

I gave all the pieces 2 coats, letting them dry between coats.
