With a little bit of paint and a stencil, Stephanie from The Silly Pearl turned an outdated spice rack into a fun storage space for her nail polish! She used Midnight Sky, Pebble Beach, Luscious Lime, Creme Brulee, and Natural Wax for this project.

I found a vintage spice cabinet at the thrift store, which had three shelves inside and a door that hid everything away. Apparently, this spice cabinet was all the range back in the day, according to the woman in line behind me. She said she really wanted one for her kitchen when she first got married. It was definitely cute but I didn’t want to use it in the kitchen. Instead, I re-purposed it as storage in a corner of my bedroom.

The outside, before. The door was like a picture frame with hinges. I could remove the decorative panel, which I thought had major stencil potential.

The pineapple stencil design was inspired by my vintage pineapple lamp, which sits in the same corner on a tabletop.

The inside, before. Even the other side of the door panel had a design on it.

First, I took apart the whole thing, popping out the door panel and removing all the hardware. I painted the door frame and the shelves with Country Chic Paint All-In-One Decor Paint in Midnight Sky. This was after the first coat. Because the shelf was quite dark, I painted three coats.

Then I replaced the door panel with a thin piece of plywood, and painted one side in Country Chic Paint All-In-One Decor Paint in Pebble Beach. Then I created a stencil for the pineapple. The body of the pineapple is simply an oval. First, I stenciled the oval with more Pebble Beach. This will help keep the stencil paint from bleeding underneath.

Then I stenciled in the pineapple body with Country Chic All-In-One Decor Paint in Creme Brulee…

…and the pineapple points with more Pebble Beach.

I painted the back of the panel with more Midnight Sky and popped it back into the door frame. The back of the shelves was empty so I thought it would be fun to add a contrasting background. So I painted another piece of thin plywood and painted it all over in Creme Brulee, and stenciled only the pineapple points in a random pattern in Pebble Beach. Then I nailed it to the back of the shelf.

Finally, I covered everything with Country Chic Paint Natural Wax. All finished.

Now I have a fun storage piece for my nail polish, and I have more room on my tabletop for other things. And I love the color combo against the new gray paint of our bedroom wall.
