I love easy projects using spray paint! I'm going to show you how to update your kitchen accessories using stainless steel spray paint. Spray paint is great for thrift store projects too!
I love the power of spray paint, don’t you? Metallic spray paint really ups your game!
Stainless Steel Spray Paint
A new accessory holder was needed for my kitchen. This very large glass jar is perfect for the task. All it needs is a little metallic stainless steel spray paint!
Project done originally in 2011 🙂
Glass Jar Painted With Stainless Steel Spray Paint
Wow! The glass jar looks completely different after several light coats of the stainless steel spray paint. I find that a few light coats with about 10 mins in between works best for long lasting adhesion. Truth be told, this was nearly 8 years ago and I still use this kitchen accessory holder in my kitchen today! The paint has held up great, no peeling scratching off or any problems at all.
Read the directions on the can of spray for dry time and how long to wait before a second coat.
How to Prep Your Knife Block
To get the knife block to match the kitchen accessory jar, the slots were taped off. I removed the small metal tag with the label. Again, I did several light coats of the stainless steel spray paint.
It really is amazing how easy a project this is, with so much impact. See more painted glass ideas here.
After the paint dried, I replaced the metal tag. It looks so much better with the stainless steel spray paint than it did with the wooden knife block.
Now I have matching kitchen accessories! I encourage you to rethink your purchases. Do you already have something at home that could be upcycled with spray paint?
I love how both of the projects turned out. Spray painting is such a quick and easy fix.
update: Look how pretty they look after I painted my kitchen countertops
I have a great kitchen cabinet painting tutorial when you decide to do it.
