Two Easy Farmhouse Style Kitchen Projects

July 31, 2018
This shaker style, shaker peg, coat rack was one of my garage sale finds this season.

I think it was 50 cents.

This was such an easy upcycle.  

I painted the wall hooks with two coats of Rust-Oleum Chalked Ultra Matte Paint in Chiffon Cream.

I wet distressed the piece with a damp rag.

I pulled out a very inexpensive Hobby Lobby farmhouse stencil to add a rooster to the center of the wall pegs.

I used Fusion Mineral Paint in Coal Black to stencil only the rooster from the Hobby Lobby feed sack stencil.

I sealed my Chalked paint and rooster stencil with Krylon Clear Coatings Aerosol in Satin Finish.

The hooks are fun in a farmhouse kitchen for displaying vintage utensils, aprons, towels, or faux greenery.

A great buy at 50 cents!

I purchased this stencil Cluck, Oink, Moo stencil from Hobby Lobby too.

The galvanized tray is from Hobby Lobby as well, from the Spring Shop Collection.  I purchased it in the store for 50% off or about $3.50.

I taped my stencil on the tray with blue painter's tape and pounced on the stencil with Fusion Mineral Paint in Coal Black.  (Amazon link in previous project).

I painted the "frame" with Chalked Paint in Chiffon Cream with a sponge brush, then sanded the Chalked Paint with 220 grit sandpaper.  The stencil and Chalked Paint were sealed with the Krylon sealer above.

To finish off the project, I drilled a hole at the top of the tray and tied on a jute hanger.  

It's a fun kitchen sign!

Easy stenciled and chalk painted projects for you to try!
