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.

Celebrate with Matte Removable Vinyl

Create Festive Door Decals for the 4th of July!

I was decorating and getting the house ready for our 4th of July Pool Party…

when I got the idea to use my new Matte Removable Vinyl to create 4th of July door decals.

They were super simple to make and they add a fun festive touch.

To make my 4th of July Door Decals…

  • I cut the vinyl letters and number using my Silhouette Cameo 3*.
  • I cut additional small white stars to stick onto the blue number.
  • I easily transferred everything onto my door using the Vinyl Transfer Tape*.

I put one onto the backdoor heading into the pool area and the other onto the door leading

into the house from the garage.

Because family don’t use the front door!

I also used the vinyl to jazz up the plain metal tin to hold cutlery.

Did you know that this vinyl will remove cleanly for up to two years?

This vinyl  film is great for decorating a kid’s room, a classroom or just about anywhere

you just  need a temporary graphic.

And, with 27 colors available, it’s not hard to find the perfect color for whatever you can

dream up!
