Burner covers part 1 – paint it!

Who’s ready to get crafty! I hope you will be inspired to create some of these same projects or spin offs! I LOVE to see what you have created from the ideas shared here in the Brassy Apple Flickr group!
I have several tutorials to share with ideas all centered around using Burner covers! YUP – burner covers!  In this day and age of flat top ranges and gas stoves these babies can be used in new ways! 
Paint it! 
Burner Covers – I buy the 2pk fro the $1.00 store! (yup only .50 each for this project!!!)
Spray Paint
Marker or paint pen
Cover the desired number of Burner covers with spray paint and let dry. 
Add the details as necessary with a marker or paint pen or paint brush.

Hang on your wall for a fun FUNCTIONAL art piece! Left just as it they add color and interest but they can also serve as a magnet board to display pictures, school work, photos, etc…..
Jazz up your magnets by following our tutorial HERE
EXTRA IDEAS!!! – Think of how FUN these would be too add a 3D polka dot to a child’s wall or how about using it as the center of a flower on the playroom wall ( you could even use the fabric wall art technique to create the petals and stem!) 
I didn’t have time to try all ideas – that where you come in! Create some, snap a pic and share it!

  1. Wow, I just love these. The sports theme is adorable for a little boys room and it is so great that they can double as an art work showoff spot.

  2. This is one of the best projects ever! Who would have thought one could transform those ugly burner covers into a cool & functional piece of art? Great job!

  3. That is a super cute idea! I wonder if I could transform them into some cute pieces for my twins’ room…hmmm….

  4. Great idea! Thanks for sharing.

  5. Brilliant! What a great idea, I have got to try this, my son would love this.

  6. That is SO clever! I could do a baseball for my sons room and just use them as colored polka dots for my girls room! Then they would both have magnet boards!

    I am going to feature your post tomorrow afternoon!
