Everyone knows that…
Sprinkles make everything nicer!
And for that reason, we always have a big supply of sprinkles.
Ordinarily, when I find spice racks while out thrifting, I give them a make-over and convert them to craft storage units.
But this time I had another plan in mind… we needed a cabinet for our sprinkle collection.
And I found the perfect old spice rack for this project for just a few dollars at a local thrift shop.
For this project I used Annie Sloan Pure White Chalk Paint, as it’s the perfect paint for that distressed, shabby look we all love.
Chalk paint adheres to almost any surface and there’s no need to sand or prime before painting, but I did do a little clean up of my cabinet before I started.
It was quite dirty and slightly greasy, so I washed it sown with a 50/50 solution of warm water and white vinegar to remove the grime and then left it out in the sun to dry thoroughly.
Usually I remove all hardware and dissemble doors and drawers etc. before painting, but for this project I just painted straight over the hardware. That’s one of the benefits of chalk paint…. it just goes on straight over metal, plastic, wood etc.
The cabinet was looking pretty good in shabby white, but I wanted to add a little something extra…
Tip: I used double sided tape to stick the paper into the cabinet. That way, if I change my mind or colour scheme later on I can easily remove it.
The glass spice jars that came with the cabinet were really quite cute… and after a thorough washing are perfect for holding our sprinkle collection.
The plastic lids were already white, but some were slightly stained and yellowing from the previous spices they held. They also received a couple of coats of white Annie Sloan paint to freshen then up.
We are loving our new Sprinkles Cabinet…
And it’s going to look fabulous in our kitchen make-over that is almost finished.
I’m sharing the Sprinkle Cabinet with these friends this week:
