Specialty Bottle. They were interested to see what I might be able to craft with their containers. It sounded like a fun way to stretch my imagination, so I picked out what I wanted from their online catalogue. One week later, I had a nice box of tins to play with. Christmas all over again!
Here are the two tins I chose for this project:
I love these tins! I had wanted containers for storing my growing collection of assorted teas, and these were so cute. I would even have just left them as is because I like the look so much, but a challenge is a challenge and so I decided to use my FAT chalk paint again.
I so loved the look of the step stool I painted (see HERE) that I decided to paint checks again. Out came the painter's tape again and squares were meticulously (NOT!) measured. lol!

I needed a few more smaller tins for the loose tea but instead of painting them all in checks, I thought it would be cute to stack them and paint the center tin red. After looking at it for a while, I decided it wasn't working and painted all three tins. I wrote a letter in chalk on each tin.
Hmmm, still not working for me. Then I had the idea of making them look like the wood building blocks I used to play with when I was little. I added chalk squares around the letters.
Now we're talkin'!
While I had the paint out, I painted a couple of tea lights too! I love the metal tart tins I got at a yard sale last year. I use a few as tea light holders and thought it would be sweet to paint the tea lights themselves in the red - kind of like the center of a flower.
Now all I need to to pick up some red tea light candles.
Red is beginning to take over my kitchen and I love it!!
Pop over and check out Specialty Bottle, they've got lots of bottles and tins to choose from and their prices are pretty awesome!
Have a great week!
