Ok so today is a really easy project, I feel like I am always saying that, but it really is! And really CHEAP! A couple weeks ago I pinned a picture on Pinterest of wood salt & pepper sha
kers that had been painted and distressed. And at the time, I think I even wrote it on the pin, I will never pass these up at the thrift store again! Well the next day I was at the thrift store and you will never guess what I found . . . . . WOOD SALT & PEPPER SHAKERS! So of course I had to buy them, because they were only $2. And so this fun little project began. I gathered my supplies, turquoise paint (its acrylic paint that I had left over from another project), a sponge brush, the salt & pepper shakers & some sandpaper (not pictured, but I used 150 grit).
So here we have our wood salt & pepper shakers, ready to be painted. The white is just because I threw them in the dishwasher to sanitize them before getting started.
First things first just paint on a layer using your sponge brush. And once that is try I would paint another. I just did 2 light coats of paint.
Once the paint is completely dry, use your sandpaper to lightly sand (depending on how you desire it to look) around the edges till you get the look you are going for. And that’s it. Its that simple! And now you have some great new salt & pepper shakers for really cheap, but an easy way to bring a little color to your kitchen or table!
