40 Martha Stewart Paint Projects and info on how to win some supplies for YOU!

8 Sep
For the last couple of weeks 41 craft, home and DIY bloggers joined forces with Crafterminds to launch the new Martha Stewart Decorative Paint line from Plaid Crafts. 
We got to play with the stencils and the new paint — there are 160
, 5 finishes and some amazing tools.

{I love the Martha Stewart paint colors!!} 
Plus it is a multi surface
paint that works on fabric, metal, glass, wood, ceramic, and plastic. Amazing!!

I fell in love with the roll on applicator tops. This is the most genius thing I have seen in a long time. They seriously make stenciling a breeze!! I plan to use them as I stencil a couple of my kitchen walls this week!! 

 I also have had quite a few emails asking if there will be some Martha Stewart giveaways. 

Plaid’s site Paint Me Plaid is celebrating this new paint line ALL September long with a  Month of Martha Celebration — featuring FAB weekly giveaways!!

So head over there to enter and win some of these FABULOUS painting supplies.

You can buy Martha’s new decorative paint line at Michaels Craft Store nationwide! Here’s a link to a 40% off coupon that’s good until Saturday.

But first — I LOVED seeing what these talented bloggers made using the Martha Stewart materials!! Check out their links below for great painting project ideas!! 

Have a SUPER night!!

Stenciled Pillows {tutorial} — New Martha Stewart Decorative Paint Line!!

22 Aug
Last week I came home to a big box of craftiness!! 

 It was the new Martha Stewart Crafts Decorative Paint Line. And let me tell you – this line has things that have never been available before!! 
For one thing, the colors of this line are beautiful — 160 colors to choose from, in all sorts of finishes: Glitter, Pearl, Satin and High Gloss!!

I love this idea — there are special applicator tops that convert paint bottles into tools!! So you can add your paint to the bottle and then screw on an applicator top and you are ready to stencil without having to keep dipping your roller in a paint tray. Not only is it convenient but it also saves on materials and clean up!!

And my favorite thing might be the revolutionary Spray Paint Kit that lets you turn any Martha Stewart paint color into a spray paint.

{What??? Yes, it’s true!!!} 

I can’t tell you how excited I am about this. I am not going to be boxed into a project just based on the limited spray paint colors that are available at the hardware store. Now I have 160 colors of spray painting options for projects. This is genius!!

Plus, there are really cool mediums like Chalkboard, Gilding, Glow-in-the-Dark, Etching, Metal Primer and they work on all crafting surfaces including
wood, metal, glass, ceramic, Terra-cotta and fabric.  PLUS,  it’s
indoor/outdoor safe and  is dishwasher-safe when used on glass. And it’s non-toxic, so it’s safe to use around your kiddos. Amazing!! 

 Just think of the project possibilities – the sky’s the limit!! 

I was on vacation when my package arrived, so I only had one day to play with the products, but I am SO excited to try out all of the different products in this line.

And the stencils are FAB!!

I made a few different pillows for my new Kitchen Makeover.

Stenciled Pillows Tutorial:


  • Measure your pillow form and add 2 inch to the width and length of your pre-washed fabric.
  • Add Paint and Fabric Medium to Roller Container.

  • I found the trick was to roll the paint on and then use the smaller sponge to smooth the paint over the fabric. This smoothed the paint and made the surface even. 
  • Then, once the painted dried, I ironed the pillow fronts to “set” the paint. This makes the paint washable.
  •  The last thing I did was I sewed the pillows together. And guess what?? I made my first zippered pillows. So fun!! A tutorial on that coming up soon!! 

I also made two other pillows using Martha Stewart supplies. The first was I made over this star pillow. I used the Spray Paint Kit. It was incredible. It works just like regular spray paint!! It is a little pricey — so save your 40% off coupons 🙂 **I have a link to a coupon at the bottom of this post.

Then I used one of the special brushes to make lines on the pillow. I love that it looks hand done!


And the last pillow I made I added rows of ruffle fabric and stenciled the word “Family” with another of the Martha Stewart Stencils.

I had such a ball experimenting with this new Martha Stewart craft line, brought to you exclusively by Plaid Crafts. The product is available at Michaels stores in the US and
Canada starting the last week of August. You will love all of the possibilities this new line will bring to your creative projects!!
