Here are three of the finished bins.
I found the stencil at Michaels craft store. The gray paint is Martha Stewart's Multi-surface High Gloss Acrylic Craft Paint in Gray Wolf. The color I used to stencil is called Metallic Champagne Acrylic Paint by Folk Art.
Here are the pink bins in my living room, waiting for something to happen to them. :)
I closed them flat for the painting and stenciling since it was easier to work on a flat surface. I made sure to cover the floor so no paint would drip on our new floors. I must admit I first tried to use a spray stencil spray paint, but it just leaked underneath the stencil. I ended up using a round sponge brush to do the stenciling. And one word from the wise, if you have to pause stenciling and reconvene later, make sure your sponge brush is thoroughly dry. If you don't, the paint will be runny and watery and leak color underneath the stencil.
Here are four of my finished bins in my Expedit bookcase ready for toys!
And one went in the two taller bookcases for DVD storage.
Here are the pins from Pinterest that inspired me the most for this project:
Thanks for checking out my Pinterest Challenge. I'm so inspired by everything I see on Pinterest and what a great way to get motivated to start making some of things we pin. Thanks Katie and Sherry for allowing me to share this with you on your website!
