Harbor Freight Revolving Storage Bin

I purchased a Harbor Freight Revolving Storage Bin for my studio and I’m so excited to share it with you! 

Here's what it looks like in the box and then loosely assembled prior to painting. You certainly could leave it this way, there is nothing wrong with it being black but I felt it would be easier to see things inside the trays if it was a lighter color AND all of my studio d├ęcor is white or off-white so I just had to paint mine! 

I went and purchased my primer and paint from Lowe's Hardware.  I used 2 cans of Rust-Oleum’s Painter’s Touch Ultra Cover 2x primer and paint. BTW 2 cans was more than enough paint! I chose to use in Heirloom White paint. 
OMG this baby had lots of parts to it and the assembling it took 45 minutes for me to assemble it! AND here it is!
I haven't filled it yet, I wanted to wait a full 24 hours before I started loading it up so it would really cure.  I think I did a good job on the painting! I deliberately made scuff marks to give it a vintage look!  As far as cost goes, it was pretty economical for all the storage space it will provide.  I had a coupon code for Harbor Freight so I paid $17.43 with my coupon. BTW the original price is $19.99!
I know I'm going to love this thing and I’m actually thinking of picking up another one! Especially at this price point! I believe that there's a revolving bin that being marketed for crafters and the price on that one is around $110 bucks!  I will take the 45 minute assembly time anytime and save the $70 bucks!!! =)
Thanks for stopping by and enjoy your weekend!  I'll see you back on Monday for a weekend recap.
