Hand painted glass christmas tree decor is an amazing alternative for everywhere available cheap plastic christmas tree bulb
A quick stencil (painting was quick, not cutting the stencil) from last weekend.
I had many empty coffee cans and quite a mess in my tea and coffee cabinet, so I decided to paint them and have them labelled.
Here is how you can repurpose old coffee cans by turning them into tea and coffee containers and keep the shelves organised.
- You can make your own stencils or download them. If you search online, there are plenty ready to go labels but if you have lots of different types of tea you are better off making your own stencils. After printing cut them out.
2. Clean the cans from the dust and grease. Paint them in one colour. I painted my cans in black. Then, using adhesive (a tiny amount) , fix your stencils to the cans and spray over. Let it dry a little bit and remove the paper to allow drying completely. If there are any aces of adhesive left, remove them gently.

This is one of the first stencil paintings i have ever made.
I upcycled the old cabinet that we put apart.
Sold just recently – I believe i went for some kind of charity auction.
Finished a long time ago but never published. so I am sharing them today. The painting is already gifted.
It took me longer than I expected and planned. It felt wrong, incomplete .. something was missing.. I started in November and started adding layers.. in December I decided to go for something more than stencil, added some additional acrylic paint layers. Eventually some day in January I decided it is finished 🙂
The weather was crap this weekend. Really bad. Look at the photo of my balcony if you don’t believe me. What to do, what to do I asked myself and decided to reuse the wood left from the disassembled cabinet. How? By painting it. Nice glass of wine and hazardous spray fumes made my weekend really colourful despite all the greyness outside 😀
What to do, what to do I asked myself and decided to reuse the wood left from the disassembled cabinet. How? By painting it. I started from a small pieces that used to be a door. apx 30×30 cm.
I then decided to do something bigger. I think this used to be a side of the cabinet.
And all of this because of the weather 🙂
This last piece I made couple of weeks ago, when the weathe was still great. An old wooden pallet that was there wIti g for me to decide what is it going to be. I planned a table top but eventually decided for a mixed media stencil. The size is probably 60×90 cm.
I found this old foldable table on a bric-a-bra sale and decided to rejuvenate it. Her is what I ended up with 🙂 I used 150 sandpaper on a palm sander. It it could be done by hand with some elbow grease. Lightly sand the entire table and legs. You do not need to remove…
