DIY Makeover

Star Bunny Studio 2013

I have been trying to spend more time in the kitchen, attempting to learn how to cook. 
I started looking closer at the tools I used most often. My knife and a plain wooden spoon are usually the first tools I grab. I wanted to dress up my wooden spoons to create something more visually appealing and came up with this wooden spoon makeover idea.

For This Makeover You Will Need:

* Wooden Spoons

* Scotch Blue Painter's Tape For Multi-Surfaces

 * Scotch Blue Painter's Tape For Delicate Surfaces

* Gold Spray Paint

* White Acrylic Paint

* Acrylic Clear Coat Spray

Using Scotch Blue Painter's Tape For Multi-Surfaces, 
mask off the wooden spoon handles creating a striped design.

Lightly spray the wooden spoon handles with gold paint. After they have dried, seal the handles with a spray of acrylic clear coat. Allow to dry, then remove the tape from the handles of the wooden spoons.

As a finishing touch, mask off the gold stripes on the wooden spoon handles with Scotch Blue Painter's Tape For Delicate Surfaces so not to harm the newly painted surface. Then paint in white stripes on the handels with white acrylic paint. Allow the paint to dry, then seal the handles with another spray of acrylic clear coat. Allow to dry again, and then remove the tape from the wooden spoon handles.

Now - What's for dinner?
