When come Hari Raya everybody seems busy making biscuits and cakes but I don't. Since I have Aya to bake the cakes and Noormy to make sure there are some biscuits on that day, I am busy sprucing up a little bit of my kitchen area.
I have this rack (picture above) on the wall that my son-in-law made for me. Isn't it cute? I had intended to use it for putting up all my kitchen ingredients like salt, ajinomoto, oil, tamarind paste and tamarind dried fruits and pepper containers in. To buy a kitchen rack would cost a lot of money and this way it will be more convenient for me as I have not much kitchen space.
But the edges of the rack were a little rough (maklum lah buatan sendiri :) so I need a sandpaper to smooth them down.
After sandpapering the inside, edges and outside area, what I did next was, just stained varnish the surfaces. I bought this small tin of KIMTONE stained varnish to paint it with.
Kimtone Stained Varnish for RM12.00 Only
And of course a stained varnish white brush. I got this cheap for only RM1.00.
I think I spent 2 hours to do all these, then wait for almost 3 hours for the varnish to really harden up before I could put up all my kitchen ingredients.
There! Now I can put up all the ingredients' containers in it.
That was all done yesterday.
Today what I need to do is re paint the outside area another coat of the stained varnish, so that the color will look darker and nicer.
Meanwhile waiting for my rack varnish to harden up, I couldn't waste my time so I also re varnish an old plate rack I have.
