I am so happy to show you this quick and easy kitchen canister revamp, using the new Martha Stewart stencils available at Michaels. I am sure you have seen the beautiful projects out there debuting this new line. I showed you my stenciled cork board, here. This time I used the adhesive stencils, and loved them! Follow along as I take you from thrift store junk, to adorable kitchen set…
- Old canisters
- Krylon Dual Ivory
- Martha Stewart Adhesive Stencils
- Stencil brush or sponge
- Acrylic paint in red and blue
- Krylon Clear Coat to seal
- Clean canisters with soapy water and dry with lint free cloth
- Spray paint with Krylon Dual. I used Ivory. It took several coats to cover the dark images on the tin canisters. Krylon dual is primer and paint in one and I LOVE it. It has wonderful coverage and doesn’t run. Very easy to use. They are not paying me for this post. It’s just that good.
- Let this be overnight. Otherwise the stencil adhesive will pull off the paint and you will be really annoyed (trust me). Choose your design and place stencils accordingly. I used Martha’s sponge pouncer for paint application. Worked great.
- Remove stencil while paint is still wet. Let that color completely dry before moving on to a new color. Once dry, seal project with your favorite sealant and that is it! I am in love with them. Thinking about adding an antique knob to the top. What do you think?
