Repurposed coffe and tea cans – stencil painted 

Repurposed coffe and tea cans – stencil painted 

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.

  1. 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.


3. As we are in the duo lingual home, I made my stencils in two languages –  Polish and English


4. Cutting stencils took me a while as I had to make lots of them – each tea and coffee type in two languages.


5. Nicely organised cans. They can be displayed like this.


6. I also painted the lids so I can stack them horizontally – this way I  have easier access to everything on the shelf.


7. No more mess or confusion as what tea is in each can 🙂

Stencil art on reclaimed wood – portrait of a woman in red ;)

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 🙂

Rainy weekend stencils

Rainy weekend stencils

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.

Rejuvenated Old Table with Bird Stencils

Rejuvenated Old Table with Bird Stencils

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…
