Spray it on with Rust-Oleum spray paints

With a can or two of Rust-Oleum 2X or Painter's Touch spray paint you can liven up your kitchen colour scheme.


Old storage tins, baskets, jugs and pots can be picked up from secondhand shops, pawn shops and online classifieds so you don't have to spend much to achieve this look. Pop into your local Builders Warehouse to check out all the latest products and colours for your next project.

How to use spray paint like a pro!


Work in a well-ventilated area. After reading the instructions begin shaking the can for the stated amount of time. For most products it is recommended you begin counting the time once the can makes a rattling sound.


Put newspaper down and practice your spraying technique by spraying from a distance of no less than 30cm away. Note that if you go too fast or leave the can pointing at one spot too long, you'll get uneven gloss. Practice spraying in slightly overlapping stripes.


Clean and dry the project to be painted and prime if necessary. Test the paint on an inconspicuous area of the object to be painted to ensure colour compatibility. If you're unsure whether or not you need to prime the object, allow the painted test area to dry fully and then check the adhesion.


Carefully mask any areas of the object not to be painted with masking tape.. Apply the paint quickly at the recommended spraying distance, alternating between moving the can from left to right and up and down. Pause to shake the can at regular intervals during painting. Be sure to slightly overlap on each stroke to prevent striping. Apply several thin coats and allow to dry for the stated time before recoating.
