Upcycled Vintage Paint Palette

Upcycled Vintage Paint Palette

Last year, going through my parents house, we found my mom’s old boards, brushes

and paints.   We also found both of my grandmother’s paints and supplies as well.

In all those treasures my brother found this paint palette.

Old and Cool.  Just my style.

This month the StyletechCraft Design Team was challenged to create an upcycled project

using vinyl.  Because my paint palette is vintage (and special) and I like to change my mind,

I decided to use Matte Removable Vinyl*.   (I’ll have the option to change it out.)

  • For my Vintage Paint Palette Upcycled Project…I used an SVG file and my Silhouette Cameo Wireless Cutting Machine* to cut and create the words “Be Creative”.
  • Using the weeding tool, I carefully removed the negative spaces in and around the letters.

  • Place a piece of Vinyl Transfer Tape* over the letters.  Rub over the letters using a vinyl scraper tool to help the vinyl cling.
  • Apply words onto the paint palette.
  • Remove transfer tape.

With Grandma’s paint supplies, I found this calendar page from 1939

that she used for inspiration.  (80 years ago, WOW!)

I’m currently in the process of turning my son’s old bedroom into a larger craft workshop.

I want to incorporate a little past into that space as well.

I want it to be a warm, inviting, eclectic space.  (kind of like me)

I think this palette will fit in just fine.
