This is a CD storage rack/tower/thingie/whatever, it holds 500 CDs. I don't have a before picture but it's that particle board/laminate finish furniture, I think I got this thing at Target a few years ago. It was all a maple-y wood color. It was in good shape but dull so I decided to "fix it up" a bit and I like it a lot.
The sides/bottom are a very dark grey, I think the shade is called Mark Twain Grey Black. The top and front of the shelves is "banner red" and the shelves are black enamel. (with the borders heavily sanded, it looks sort of weird in the pics but I really like the way they look. )
I kind of want to paint something on the top but I can't decide....so right now it's just on there with double-sided tape.
I used Rustoleum magnetic primer on the sides. These are a few of the U2 magnets I've made (with those printer sheets) and I plan to make magnets with scans of all my saved concert ticket stubs for it.
