I’m back with another easy Lowe’s Creative Idea this month. When you get tired of your cobalt blue canisters you can easily spray paint them with a metallic color block pattern. That’s exactly what I decided to do with my thrift store canisters.
I’ve been on a major mission to purge things I no longer use or love from my house. I have almost completely filled our dining room with things to donate. I had contemplated donating my cobalt kitchen canisters because the color wasn’t making me happy anymore. But, then I realized that I could give them an entirely new look with some spray paint.
- Sanding sponge
- Valspar Gray Primer Spray Paint
- Valspar Satin Encounter Spray Paint
- Valspar Tropical Oasis Spray Paint
- Valspar Sonic Lime Spray Paint (I used an old color called Pistachio, no longer available)
- Valspar Exotic Sea Spray Paint
- ScotchBlue Painter’s Tape for Delicate Surfaces
- Rustoleum Metallic Copper Spray Paint
Remove the lids, the metal ring, and spoons from your canisters.

Spray the outside and base of the canisters with Valspar Premium Primer. [Read more…]
