Good evening everyone,
Hope you are all enjoying your evening, we are good, relaxing in front of the TV while writing this post. My son is now with his grandma, so hubby and I are enjoying some much needed alone time. Meanwhile, I wanted to share with you a small DIY project that is easy to do. We did this project a few weeks ago after browsing online. I’m sure you have all seen this trend of “dipping objects in paint ” every where on the web, so I decided to give it a try by dipping my wooden spoons in white paint to decorate my kitchen. Of course, you know, I can’t take credit for this idea. If I am not mistaken it originated with House of Earnest , except she painted them with a brush but then I saw this same project else where and they dipped the spoons in paint but couldn’t find the original source.
Let me show you how I did it:
I began by putting painter’s tape around the wood spoons where I wanted the paint to stop in a crisp line, as you can see it didn’t come off as straight as I wanted it to:
Dip the handle of the spoon up until the painter’s tape into dipping paint. Then, I had to shake off the excess paint, it took me more than 5 minutes to do this by spoon. Had I known this, I would’ve just paint brushed them. My hubby was helping me with this project, he was bored because I had him hold one of the spoons for 5 minutes while I was taking the pictures:
Because it takes them so long to dry, we used our chandelier from our dining room and hung them to dry for 3 hours by attaching them with metal wire. Once they’re dry, add food safe shellac to finish them as instructed by the House of Earnest tutorial:
After 3 hours of letting them dry, this is how they look. They look better and because most of the accessories in my kitchen are red; there is a nice contrast between the two:
Thanks again for stopping by!
