PAINTED WOODEN UTENSILS

Hi guys! As promised from earlier, I’m back to show you my version of the painted wooden kitchen utensils!

After

Pretty, right? You would think that with all of the stuff I have in my garage, I would have a glass vase or something that I could place these in, right? Yeah, NO.  So I’m going to head up to my favorite thrift tomorrow and scoop one up for about 77 centsSmile

Because I already had the paint and painters tape on hand for this project, it only cost me 1 buck! You can’t beat that with a stick (Or a wooden spoon)! Get it? Beat that with a wooden spoon? Smile with tongue out

Anywho, if you are considering doing this, I would definitely grab the packs from IKEA.  If you are doing them for décor (like me), then you could also head to a thrift store and pick up some. I find them all the time at mine.  By the way, I do have some that I picked up from the thrift store, but I didn’t have time to pull them out.  On my next attempt at this, I’ll use them and share how they turn out!

Now go paint some spoons!

 

I’m linking this to Centsational Girl’s spring Linky Party!

Visiting from Centsational Girl. I have never thought of painting silverware before. What a cute gift for Mother's Day.

Have a blessed weekend.

This is such a great project! I love it's simplicity. In fact, it's downright cinchy ... and would be perfect at our "It's a Cinch" multi-blog link party. The link stays open until midnight Friday and when you link at one blog, you're automatically linked up to the party's five co-hosts ...

Hope to see you at the party!
