A set of kitchen canisters with plain wooden lids lacked interest and style.
Paint With Color Wash
Secure painter's tape around the lid and create a design of your choice. Next, take a paint brush and apply thin, even layers of paint. If needed, apply one more coat and allow to dry.
A Splash of Color
Fill the trio of canisters with your favorite snacks and display on the countertop for easy access.
Coffee Mug Tree
Give an ordinary wooden coffee mug tree a chic, yet simple update with a little paint.
Remove Tree Sticks
Detach the tree sticks from the base and attach clothespins to keep them steady and ready for painting. Let dry completely before reattaching.
Cute Coffee Station
Hang your collection of mugs from the tree and keep your coffee machine nearby for a convenient place to brew up a morning cup of joe.
A simple cutting board receives new purpose with a little paint and hand-lettering.
Paint + Stencil
Coat all four edges of the cutting board with one to two coats of paint. Allow to dry completely. Stencil on the edge of the board to get the lettering and spacing correct. Finally, use a small paint brush to write over the stenciled words.
Cheese Serving Tray
Invite your best pals over for a wine and cheese night, complete with this beautiful cheese tray.
The trio of projects look lovely lined up together on the kitchen countertop, offering a place for guests to enjoy snacks and a cup of coffee.
