Today I’m hosting a Spring Blog Hop with five other bloggers. We can’t wait to share our spring DIY’s with y’all!
My mom gave me the cutest set of vintage bunny salt and pepper shakers! I believe they were my Mom-Maw’s. I think that the red colored top, stands out, to much for my decor taste, so I decided to paint the pepper shaker’s top to match the color of the salt shaker’s top.
I started out by painting the top white. I just used some left over SW paint in Eider White. I painted two coats.
Next I decided to add a light coat of wood filler that I had on hand from the hardware store.
Next, I decided to use a Semi Transparent Minwax Stain in Red Oak on the white paint, while it was still wet.
I thought the color needed more of a yellow tone instead of a brown tone, so I added Outrageously Orange craft paint.
I ended up sort of mixing the paint colors and stain together to make the color, while sanding in between coats for an aged look.
Here is the final result! I think I got pretty close to the color of the salt shaker’s top! Now my Vintage Bunny Salt and Pepper Shakers are ready to be apart of my spring decor!
Head on over and checkout the other sweet bloggers to see what they’ve come up with for their Spring DIY’s!
