Stenciled Kitchen Canister Set

Martha Stewart Stencils

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
  • Martha Stewart StencilsSpray 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?
