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.

Remove the lids, the metal ring, and spoons from your canisters.

Use a sanding block to lightly rough up the surface of the canisters. Wipe all the sanding dust off with a damp rag.
Spray the outside and base of the canisters with Valspar Premium Primer.
Spray paint your canisters using the Valspar spray paint color of your choice.
Once the canisters have completely dried, use painter’s tape to mask off the top of the canisters.
Spray paint the bases using copper spray paint.
Allow the canisters to dry and remove the painter’s tape.
Fill your canisters with anything your heart desires. I used mine to corral my paint brushes and art supplies.
But, I actually love how they look in the kitchen.
For now they are in the art & craft studio, but they may come downstairs in the near future.
