Design DIY: Color-Block SilverwareAuthor:Rachel Amy Shahvar
Color blocking is all-the-rage in clothing this season, so why not incorporate it into home decor? Big thanks to Christy from Creatively Christy for letting us share her project!
Any type of flatware (mismatched vintage pieces are inexpensive and look great)
Metal primer spray paint
Wrap a piece of painter’s tape around the neck of your utensil, making sure to create a straight line. Then take your baggie and wrap it around the head of the utensil, securing it with more tape.
Hold your utensil by the head and spray it lightly with the metal primer in a well ventilated area. Make sure this is a LIGHT coat – otherwise it will drip and fill in all the great carvings.
Repeat step two with spray paint color of your choice! Air dry fully before removing the tape and plastic.
NOTE: Painted utensils are for display only, they’re NOT food safe! Feel free to experiment with sealing them with a coat of polyurethane for regular use.
