I needed some new spoons, and her painted ones were so cute I had to make myself a set. I picked up this set at Target, but if you're lucky enough to live close to an Ikea you can purchase an entire wooden utensil set for $.49 like Lakeitha did. My Ikea is almost 2 hours away so off Target I went.
This was such a simple project. I used some of the left over grey chalk paint, taped with masking tape around the top, and then painted 2 coats with a small craft brush.
Regular painters tape wouldn't stick but masking tape did the trick.
When the paint was dry I took the tape off and used a little gold rub n' buff around the top. I just used my finger to rub it on in a very non-perfect kind of way.
I let that dry overnight and followed with 2 coats of poly the next day.
And now I have pretty new spoons!
I love them in my glass hurricane.
Thanks so much Lakeitha for the inspiration!
Have you painted any wooden spoons/utensils? Wouldn't these make a great hostess gift?
