Whether it’s a splash of colour or a funky label, adding some personal touches to your kitchen will make your ordinary, out-dated objects both beautiful, functional and bang on trend!
Create customisable labels and liberate Italy’s most famous export from the back of your cupboard. In this example, we used Rust-Oleum Peelable in Black and sprayed over masking tape to make graduating rectangles. Once dry, remove the tape and finish the job with hand-drawn lettering.
For those who don’t quite trust their own handwriting, select a font you like on the computer and print out your word, then simply trace on and ink in.
All out of pasta and packing in the carbs…not a problem! Simply peel off your labels and start again. Our Peelable paint comes straight off surfaces without leaving any residue, so you can label and re-label whenever you want.
If you’re not looking to make a statement, Peelable’s matt finish is ideal for adding extra grip to objects like chopping boards and utensil handles. Just like before, grab the masking tape to section off the areas you want to paint and choose from six vibrant colours to match your scheme.
Herbs are great for freshening up your kitchen and your recipes. For a fun and easy way to personalise your kitchen by making a design feature out of your tasty collection, use Rust-Oleum Chalkboard Paint in Black with contrasting white chalk lettering.
If you’re looking for something brighter, choose pink, red or blue from the Rust-Oleum Chalkboard range or mix things up with multi-coloured chalk. Once you’re out of a particular herb, rub off the chalk and start afresh.
We all love a list or a fun family message so here’s how a homemade chalkboard for the kitchen is easily achievable with Rust-Oleum Chalkboard Paint. Take a picture frame and spray the glass or backboard, leave to dry and then all that’s left to do is choose your spot and scrawl away.
Add a burst of colour with Rust-Oleum Chalkboard Paint in Pink — perfect for making a bold statement. Paint your frame the same colour and you’ll be right up-to-date on this season’s design trends. If pink isn’t your thing, try red, blue, or you can always go back to classic black.
Spraying your utensils is a great way of making the ordinary, special and completing the desired look for your kitchen. Use masking tape for those straight lines and cover anything you don’t want to paint.
Spray with Rust-Oleum Mode in Celeste (as pictured) or choose from the 11 other high gloss colours that are available. Don’t have a scheme? No problem, why not spray each utensil a different colour for a bright and eclectic finish.
Updating objects in the kitchen shouldn’t stop at your bin. Turn the functional and throwaway into something you’ll want to show off by using Rust-Oleum Painter’s Touch spray paint in Cherry Red.
As we’ve demonstrated, keeping the original stainless steel finish on selected areas of an object creates a premium, high street finish. Don’t be afraid to use more then one colour either, if you want something more vibrant and bespoke.
Our Painter’s Touch is multi-purpose and highly durable so it can withstand the inevitable bumps and knocks that occur in well-used spaces. Choose the perfect shade to match your kitchen from 42 colour options.
