Forks and Spoons ~ Home Decor!

Hi Everyone!  Can you believe we are about half way through the summer?  It's just flying by for me!  I hope you're enjoying your long summer days!

Yesterday I mentioned that I've been getting some things done around my house.  Not all the projects have been fix it, some have been just for fun.  Like today's project...this is a fun project that I saw on Pinterest.  I'm totally addicted to Pinterest!

This is what I had in my kitchen before my new cute project...

These were cute, but a bit too country for me now.  I'm saving the frames for another project for later.  :)


I picked up some $3 frames at Walmart


I had some odd and ends of forks and spoons that belonged to my husband's grandmother.  I sprayed them with a white satin spray paint.


 I sprayed the frames with the same paint.  Once everything was dry, I lightly stained the frame and the silverware.  Then I covered the glass from the frames with burlap. (imagine that, me using burlap! lol!)  Next I glued the silverware randomly onto the burlap.  And voila a cute home decor project!


Have a beautiful day!

Enjoy!
