How To: Spruce Up Your Salt / Pepper Shaker

from Heart of Light

It's Kitchen & Bath month on AT. These are typically big investment rooms, so as renters we rely on accessories to spice up our kitchens and bath. Inspired by a pepper mill from Anthropologie, Rachel from Heart of Light decided to give her kitchen some ooomph by sprucing up this sad salt and pepper set she found at a thrift store for $2.

Rachel decided to spray paint both shakers an electric blue. Before priming, she used a combination of painter's tape, cotton and pins to keep paint from seeping into the shaker. She used a high gloss spray paint.

And the final result!

Rachel's Anthropologie inspiration is on sale for $12.95, but we actually prefer her DIY version.
