DIY Knife Block Beautification

A while back, I tried my hand at a Knife Block Beautification Project. The idea to update my boring old wooden knife block came from Pinterest – shocker. My inspiration picture is below…

OFF to Hobby Lobby I went, in search of these matching color combos. I picked up two Krylon Spray Paint colors, Ocean Breeze and Ivy Leaf…
First I sprayed Blue Ocean Breeze.

Then came Ivy Leaf…

I wasn’t TOO worried about the second coat, as I was encouraging the blue to shine through.
*Helpful Hint – follow instructions on shaking for 2 minutes. Helps WONDERS!*

After drying and sanding down, here is my finished project…

Since I don’t have a steady hand for calligraphy, nor did I want to invest in a stencil and more paint – I purchased (what I thought was) a stick on “G.” Turns out, it was an iron on letter – DOH! – but with a dab of super glue, who could tell. 😉

Obviously it isn’t the fabulous starter picture, but I will say, it is better than the original wood and a fun pop of color in an otherwise boring kitchen.

Speak Your Mind
