This is how to repurpose a CD rack or any other small book case to become a great ornament shelf to hold all your little nick nacks neatly.
First I removed the back by unscrewing the sides and taking the back broad out. Another variation of this might be to cover the back board with wrapping paper to make the back a cute design. I have kept it out as I want the colour of the wall to show through the sides.
Next I sanded down the wood so that the spray paint will stick better. After sanding I washed it down to get rid of any dust then I spray painted the whole thing. I used the Wilko spray paint gloss in Antique White.
