Spray Painting Ceramics

8:31:00 AM

It works better than you'd think....

Sometimes you find a cool piece but the colors 
just aren't working for you...

I loved this little ceramic piece... 

match holder? tea bags?
(Personally, I think the big box of stick matches fits right in here)

I gave it a coat of high gloss white spray paint...

and a star is born!

Now it "matches" my kitchen! 
Hmmmm... I wonder what else I can paint.....

and by the way, tea bags fit very nicely too!

  1. Would never have thought to do that! Now I can't wait to hit the thrift store...

  2. Looks great now! I have so many pieces that could use a makeover like this!


  3. Wow, I never would have thought you could do that, Susan! I'll be looking at some ceramic pieces I've passed up at Goodwill differently now.

  4. Cute find and I love to paint ceramics. Great job. Hugs, Marty

  5. does it rub/scrape/wash off? meaning just how durable is the paint over?

    1. Hi Eolist Petite.... It doesn't rub or scrape off. It seems to be on really well. I have some pieces I did last year and they are still fine. I would not put it in the dishwasher and only hand wash.

  6. It looks amazing....I would want to add a french decal from the Graphic's Fairy....marvelous idea you have there....off to the cupboard to find a hidden jewel. Merci!

  7. Ah-haaa!! I never would have thought to paint ceramic pieces...smart thinking!! Perfect for your teabags!! I have some galvanized metal match holders I've been trying to think of a purpose for...now I know!! Thanks :)

  8. That did work pretty good, and nope - I would not have thought to do that. I'm starting to get scared at how much stuff I'm going to be packing in my car when garage sale season starts!


  9. I definitely will try this! Thanks.


  10. What a great idea! I'm your newest follower-love your header and great first name, too-lol! I'd love you to visit and say hi :)

  11. Now it looks like white ironstone. You'll be posting whites this week...jk. I am joking because I did two chalk paint projects in a row and thinking of more. Good idea!

  12. Woo, I love it!! I have such a hard time seeing the "potential" in items like that. I love seeing good inspiration pieces like this.

  13. That is a cute piece! I would have probably passed it by because of the design. Nice to know ceramic can be spray painted. Have a great week!


  14. LOVE the updated look Susan! glossy white was the perfect choice.


  15. It looks like a different piece. Thanks for the tip.

  16. I literally just put aside a painted pitcher that I was going to give to Goodwill but thought maybe I could paint it. Now I know I will! Kathleen
