Supplies needed for the Enamel Pitcher:

This project took all of about 5 minutes and looks like something out of Pottery Barn without the $$$$ tag!
Just make sure before you start stencilling that the area on the Enamel Pitcher where you intend on stencilling is clean and dry.

Using your Number Stencil, Americana Deco Art Black Paint and Stencil Brush now starts all the fun.
Put out a blob of paint about the size of a 20 cent coin onto your tile or plastic plate. As you can see from the photo my tile that I use has seen better days!! It has been the tile that I have used for the last 19 years for painting. It’s my lucky tile even though it was much larger when I first started LOL!!
Using the magic tape, tape your stencil onto the Enamel Pitcher ensuring that it is centred and straight. The tape stops the stencil from moving around and the magic tape is great to use for all painting projects as it leaves no sticky residue and also doesn’t pull off any paint if you have undercoated the item you’re making over.

Leave to dry and then give 2 light coats of spray varnish to seal, ensuring that you allow to dry in between coats.
There you have a simple way to jazz up a plain enamel pitcher and give it a little Farmhouse Style.

Using your small wooden pegs clip the numbered tags onto the holder in front of each bottle and ta da a super quick decoration all ready to adorn your home! You can add fresh flowers to the milk bottles or in this case I used some pip berry sprigs popped into the centre milk bottle.

Supplies needed for a Number Box:

I gave the wooden box 3 coats of my Milk Coloured Chalk Paint using my small brush and then lightly distressed with my sander to let the wood come through. Then using my Number Stencil, Stencil Brush and Black Deco Art Americana Paint I stencilled the numbers 1 to 4 around the edges. Then gave the entire box a wax to seal in all its cuteness.
I had no problem finding a special home my new numbered box as it now lives on my coffee table and keeps my ceramic birdy happy along with some nice fresh flowers from my garden depending whats in bloom. It is also a great TV remote holder to keep things all nice and organised!

One of my favourite things to do is to turn old jars that I have kept to create a sweet collection of Homey Vases. To see how I made these Quick and Easy Homey Vases click here!

Happy numbering!

  1. Sam, it's my first visit here and I'm delighted to meet you! I'm an Aussie blogger too, and I'd love you to join my linkup, Five Star Frou-Frou, which goes live late on Friday AEST. You'd be made to feel very welcome, of that I'm certain. Meanwhile, I adore your enamel pitcher project, and feel a visit to KMart coming on so I can replicate it. Nicely done!
