Same Old Silverware-New Color

Good afternoon, everyone.....It's Thursday and it has been a busy week with all the back to work things that I had to do before the kids go back to school.  The summer has just flown by and I can't really look forward to the start of another school year.  This school year my first 2 grandchildren will start school and that 5 years have gone by so FAST!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  Well, here is my project and my daughter Jackie just blogged about her fun red silverware but I decided that I also wanted to change the look of them, so I decided on another color.  Here is the before picture:

As you can see they are a little beat up and not at all fun looking.  Kinda of boring.....
The handles of the silverware are really carved out and fun.

So, the color I decided on was orange.  I really like color and it is so fun and can go with so many colors and it is a great accent color.

When they were painted I decided to rub some burnt umber color paint into all the grooves, which seem to pick up all the details on them.

On all the edges I rubbed the same paint to add a little bit detail.
So what do you think?   Until next time, Dianne......................

  1. Love the new color! Looks great! Stop by my Friday's Five Features and link up this post (and others)!

  2. Oh! I love this yellow color!
    I like that you have a pair too. I found one of these at a thrift, and spray painted it black and distressed it a little bit. But where the tiki-faces are...I wrapped mine with jute twine.
    A little different look.
    But I love the yellow color on yours! Great job.
