I found this great baker's rack at my local thrift store. It is a nice height and it also folds flat to transport. Perfect! Because of its lovely lattice metal work, it will be perfect for my outdoor space. With Valspar stone finish paint, I wanted to lighten it up and give it a more stone look.

Total Time: 2 hours

Yield: 1


  • baker's rack
  • Valspar stone spray
  • spray sealant
  • potted plants
  • accessories (optional)


  1. Wipe down the rack and make sure it is free of dust and dirt.
  2. Ad

  3. Spray with paint.
  4. Let the paint dry.
  5. Finish with a sealant.
  6. Let the sealant dry.
  7. Add your favorite flower pots, yard decor, etc.

The finish turned out really nice. The metal appears to be heavier than what I've seen on most baker's racks.


It should give you years of service. Great job!
