I’ve been collecting wooden rolling pins at thrift stores, flea markets, and yard sales all summer long! All the time in the back of my mind I had the idea of painting the handles red and green for my Christmas display in the antique shop.
Well… NOW it’s time to paint. (HINT: Scroll down to enter my giveaway to WIN the exact paints I’m using for this project!)
Look what I’ve collected so far:
Two of the rolling pins still have their original red handles. I’m just going to clean those up.
Two others have been painted blue. Yes, I love turquoise but I want these to be red and green! So I’m going to paint over the blue handles and try to sand the blue paint off the body of one.

Supplies for Painting Wooden Rolling Pins

How to Paint Wooden Rolling Pins
First, clean the rolling pins. Sand off any stains or rough parts. Wipe off the sawdust. Rolling pins can be cleaned with soapy water or a damp cloth.
Next, paint the handles. I’m using Shabby Paints in Betsy Ross Red and Hummingbird Green.
After the paint has dried completely, sand off a little where they would normally show wear.
Here’s the Live video I did on my Facebook page if you want to see it in action.
