recycled pitcher...

In my effort to work with items I already have in my home and see how I can reuse them I have found my latest victim. I purchased a cookie jar, pitcher, sugar jar and milk pitcher a couple years back when I was in my "everything in my kitchen must match" phase. Fast forward a couple years and those pieces are slowly getting an overhaul. 

These items have gotten some wear and tear over the years so I decided to try painting them black. 

I purchased some flat black spray paint and applied 3 coats, waiting about a hour between each coat. 

The end result is not perfect, but for a recycled item, not too shabby. I still have a couple more pieces so next time I'll be trying out a different medium, chalkboard spray! 


  1. I love how empowered we all feel with spray paint. Your pitcher looks great black. *and I have that same soap dispenser. Mine is too precious to actually contain soap (is yours as well?). Mine is too pretty to actually be expected to work :).

  2. I love the power of spray paint! Stopping by from the Networking Blog Hop…I would love if you would come say hello :)
