Make: Painted Wooden Kitchen Utensils

Friday, February 22, 2013




I have been seeing a lot of cute little wooden kitchen utensil sets with painted handles and I almost bought these ones the other day. But then I realized I already had a set of bamboo utensils in my kitchen drawer and some fun paint colors I had yet to try out, so I decided to just diy it. The kitchen is one place I don't feel I need everything to be really matchy-matchy, in fact I kind of like a bit of a modern-kitschy-french farmhouse vibe and I think these fit in with that odd combination. Especially for the price of free to dress them up and the 5 minutes it took me to slap a little paint on them. Now if I could only pair it all up with a smeg refrigerator.  

Happy friday! Any fabulous plans for the weekend? I feel like February is going by so fast and next week is the last week of the month! But that means spring is almost here, and so with that, I just can't complain. xo

  5. Those are adorable, and I'm actually kind of in love with the shot of the napkin you wiped the brush on. That's so beautiful. I actually couldn't figure it out at first, I thought it was a painting of a bird or something. And the combination of colors is great! That hot pink is the perfect pop of color for a kitchen.

    Yeah, February is speeding on by. I can't believe it's already the 21st. Is this what life is life? No fun! Have a great weekend!

  6. These look wonderful - I have a set of very plain wooden utensils that I might just have to jazz up a little! (like Erin, I love the tissue photo too :)
    I feel like February is rushing past - nice that it means spring is closer, but not so nice that the year is going so fast with so little done yet!

  7. At first I was worried about how the paint would react with food... but that was kind of silly of me. It doesn't look that hard to do designs either. Thanks for the tip!

  8. It's so funny Christine because when I first started off cooking, the absolutely crucial utensil for everything was the wooden spoon. 10 years later, I still feel that it is but you're totally right, it could use some prettying up :)

  10. Good for you, taking matters into your own hands and diy'ing those painted spoons. You're so resourceful. Yay for moving ever closer to spring. Trees are already starting to blossom in these parts and we had some nice weather this weekend, perfect for my daughter's first Tball game. Hope you're having a wonderful weekend, Christine!

  11. Super cute! I think they are definitely cutesy and contemporary. And I completely agree - they would pair perfectly with a Smeg fridge. But then again I would change anything and everything in my kitchen to match a Smeg fridge if I could get my hands on one!

  15. Oh my GOSH. Aren't Smeg fridges the best? I love them. They wouldn't really work in our kitchen, but love. I love your project too. Nice work, duckie. Hope your weekend turned out great. Figured out that camera yet? ;)
