Kitchen Accents with Waverly

Thanks to Plaid Crafts for sponsoring today’s post; all opinions are, as always, my own.Kitchen Decor

Friends, I don’t know about you, but I’m a longtime fan of the Waverly Inspirations at Walmart. If you enjoy them too, you’ll be excited to hear that there’s a brand new Waverly Inspirations collection inspired by the fabric designs and colors that includes paints for home décor accents and fabric, stencils, brushes, tools, and surfaces! There’s Chalk, Super Premium, and High Gloss paint; something for every project. Waverly Inspirations is available exclusively at Walmart and

Today, I want to show you how easy it is to use these new products to create gorgeous, coordinating decor for your home…specifically your kitchen! Using the colors inspired by this beautiful patterned fabric, I created a matching trivet and decorative bowl. Take a look at how simple it is and how you can do the same!


Stenciled Trivet

You’ll need:

a round cork trivet
Waverly Inspirations Chalk paint in Rhubarb and Cashew
Waverly Inspirations Chalk Paint Brush
Waverly Inspirations Stencil Brush


Step 1: Paint your trivet with a coat of Cashew paint.

I have to admit that I wasn’t sure how the paint would take to a cork surface, but it worked like a charm! The Waverly chalk line is also great on wood, metal, MDF, paper mache, decorative glass and more. I found that one coat gave plenty of coverage. Let your base color dry completely before moving on.


Step 2: Stencil your design on top using Rhubarb paint.

When stenciling, less is always more. It’s best to have very little paint on your brush and reload many times than to have too much. An overloaded brush will cause the paint to bleed underneath the stencil, ruining your design. Lightly pounce your brush up and down on the surface of your trivet, rather than using normal brush strokes. The new clear bottle with a wide-mouth opening allows you to dip your brush right in the jar, which made stenciling a breeze!


Once again, one coat did a beautiful job. Remove your stencil and take a look at your gorgeous design! These Waverly chalk paints are designed to layer beautifully, and they certainly do. Once the paint is completely dry, you can leave it as is and use it or seal it with a coat of Mod Podge first.


I’m loving the bold colors as well as the pattern itself. It coordinates perfectly with the inspiration fabric to!


Colorful Bowls

You’ll need:

wooden bowls {I found mine at Goodwill}
Waverly Inspirations Chalk paint in Celery and Cashew
Waverly Inspirations Chalk Paint Brush
Waverly Inspirations Wax, Clear
Waverly Inspirations Wax Brush


Step 1: Paint the outside of your bowl with Celery and the inside with Cashew. I gave mine three coats to make sure I had good, solid coverage. 


Step 2: Apply a coat of wax.

The Waverly Inspirations Waxes are available in Clear, Antique, and White. They add rich texture and enhance details while protecting painted surfaces from chipping. Like other waxes, they can be applied with a sponge or soft lint-free cloth, or you can use the specially designed wax brush.


That’s all there is to it! It was so simple to create coordinating accents because the paint colors are inspired by the fabric itself. Wouldn’t it be fun to create a tablecloth, placemats, and/or napkins from the fabric and have a whole matching set for your kitchen?
