It’s no secret I love a DIY project. It’s been a little while since I’ve whipped out the paints, so I was super excited to get creative with some fabulous products. The Reject Shop set me a DIY challenge and I was thrilled to get my creative shoes dancing into store to select some products which I could transform with a little splash of paint.

I’m loving all of the delicious sorbet colours and metallics out at the moment so it was an obvious choice to fill my basket with these colours and head home to get my DIY on. I decided on a mix of triangle patterns and dip dye effects, but you could easily play around with a mix of different patterns to suit your own style.

The Supplies

All of my supplies are from The Reject Shop (except the bronze metallic paint which I picked up from a local art shop).

What you will need:

* Paint in a range of colours

* Scissors

* Masking tape

* Paint brushes in a range of sizes

Goodies to paint. I chose:

* A wooden stool

* Cactus pot plants

* Candle holders + candles

* Wooden kitchen utensils

The Process

This is one simple little project you can launch into one weekend. Here’s the 2 step process:

(1) It’s as easy as taping up your products to create little areas to paint in, in a range of colours

(2) Then it’s time to have some fun with paint.

Super easy and definitely fool proof (I promise)!
