Kate Spade Knock Off Salt & Pepper Shakers


You may have seen my Kate Spade Salt & Pepper Shakers I keep on the tray in my
 kitchen ~ the fun black, white and gold set. I always get asked where they're from, 
 they were a gift from a friend and I love them! (Btw, I shared her fabulous home here)
You can find them at Kate Spade here.
Fairmount Park Dot/Stripe Salt & Pepper Set
 $30.00

~ OR ~

you could DIY yourself a set using paint and white shakers from Target! 



Original Kate Spade Fairmount Salt & Pepper Shakers 

Target 


SUPPLIES:
Rubbing Alcohol
Martha Stewart Liquid Gilding - Gold
Martha Stewart Multi Surface Craft Paint - Beetle Black High Gloss 
Small Brush, Round Foam Pouncer 

STEP 1: 
Tape off your stripes.
I cut my tape at 3/4" width using the edge of a cutting mat as a guide and ran my xacto
 knife along the edge for a clean line.


This shaker tapers at the top, so you'll have to work with the tape a bit where there is a
 slight gap - I just used my nail to firmly press the tape against the glass to secure well. 


STEP 2:
Paint the stripes.
I took the plug out of the bottom and put my finger in there to hold the shaker
while painting stripes.
Using a small brush (about 1/2" - 3/4" wide bristles) apply the Liquid Gilding on the glass,
 after dipping your brush in the gilding wipe the excess on the edge of the jar.
 Do your best to apply one coat and don't go over what you've already painted.  
If I were a good blogger I'd have a picture of this for you!
 Sorry, it went so quickly I completely spaced the photo! 

STEP 3:
Paint the dots.
Wipe the shaker with rubbing alcohol per instructions on Multi Surface Paint. 
Put a small amount of paint in a container to dip your pouncer into, remove any
excess paint on a paper towel, press the foam pouncer completely against the glass to
deposit the paint. 


A couple things:
The Multi Surface Paint is dishwasher safe after curing for 21 days.
You could use gold spray paint, I chose liquid gilding because I like the sheen,
and already had it. A little goes a long way and I've used it for a ton of projects. 


You can't beat the originals,
 but if you're looking for a budget friendly version this is a simple alternative
to get the look!
