Hey, did you have a good weekend? I’ve been at the hospital with my great-niece, so no projects got any attention the last few days. If you follow along on facebook, you’ve already seen this numbered canister set in my booth. The set is very similar to the Painted Canister Set with the medallion graphics.
I primed, then painted the wooden pieces with General Finishes Milk Paint in Snow White
, then lightly distressed the edges. After transferring the graphics, I applied two coats of Rust-Oleum Satin Clear Coat. My preferred method for transferring graphics is to tape the images facedown to the lids, and lightly rub with a cotton ball dipped in either lacquer thinner or Citra Solv
A close up:
What do you think?
Do you prefer to label canisters with the contents, or something more general or decorative?
