A while back while out thrifting I came across a pre-painted kettle and a flour sifter. They were both looking pretty sad and lonely on the shelf and I couldn’t pass them by. They at least deserved to have a fresh new look. So today I’m sharing how to upcycle an Old Farmhouse Kettle using some decor stamps.
How To Upcycle An Old Farmhouse Kettle
This is going to be one of the most enjoyable projects that you’re going to make. You will watch your design come to life with a 3D effect as you layer your stamps.
Whether it is your first time stamping or your 10th your going to have a ball seeing how easy it is to upcycle all the things using a little bit of paint and some decor stamps no matter what you’re working on.

Should I do anything to my decor stamp before I use it?
If you’re using your stamp for the first time, it’s always advisable to remove the transfer sheet from your stamps so the stamp side is exposed and lightly rub over all of the stamps with 120 grit sandpaper.
This opens up the pours of the stamp to allow the paint, ink or what ever medium you are using to adhere better to the stamps.
Take a peek at the video below for the next steps:
Step 1 – Because this kettle already had been previously painted, it needed to be sanded and then cleaned with TSP.
Step 2 – Give the handle 2 coats of Little Lamb. Add in small sections some Kindest Regards and Craquelure Decor Stamp. Once the paint and ink are completely dry, using your wax brush give the whole kettle a wax to seal in all of your hard work.
Step 3 – Cut some scrap jute and lace and tie around the handle of your kettle.
Happy Painting & Stamping!
