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. 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.

  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!

  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!

    hugs,
