I think that I am confident enough to say that when I have my own house, I’ll take care of the kitchen first. I’m not sure if it’s because the one I’m now “using” is really old, kinda dull, and not the most practical; or maybe it’s because I have some hidden “I Wanna be the Next Jamie, only in female version” desires. But, seriously, when I’m in the kitchen, I often imagine how would I want my very own to look like. Since I’m not there yet, I decided to try and embellish the area, so that it looks more of an inviting and cozy space. And what’s a better way to do that, if not by introducing some color to the room? I decided to start the embellishing-the-kitchen project & paint some Wooden Cooking Spoons. This small pops-of-color detail instantly cheered up the kitchen.
I really love how the spoons turned out, so you’ve guessed right. I will be painting more stuff that I think can use a little bit of colorful improvements with this acrylic paint. And, of course, I’ll be sharing it with you, hoping I’ll awake the DIY – enthusiast in you.
the What-s & How-To-s.
This is, of course, yet another one of the super easy DIY project I’m rambling about lately. It takes around 20 minutes to prep and finish this. And another 30-45 minutes for the spoons to dry before placed on the kitchen counter as the perfect pops of color.
For doin’ it yourself, you’re gonna need: wooden cooking spoons; masking tape + scissors; acrylic paint + brush + jar/can with water. Check out the photos below to see how I did it.
Make sure to tape the part of the spoon that you don’t want painted with masking tape. Choose your colors, mix some paint up, and start painting. Once you’ve finished, place the spoon in a jar. Make sure that the painted part doesn’t touch anything around. Get another spoon and repeat. Then another spoon and repeat. Then another spoon… You could do this all day, but don’t. In case you have some kick-ass selling-painted-wooden-spoons plan, which is cool. Maybe you’ll make some money.
Anyhow, that’s about it. Pops of color and everything.
