I finished giving this old utensil holder a makeover. I did not take a photo of it before because...I forgot. But imagine it not painted and bare wood.
I painted it in Taylor's Chalk by Martha Stewart paints from the depot, I didn't touch the inside or the handle. I distressed it light around the edges and added some chalkboard paint to make it a little more fun. I purposely made the chalkboard part uneven to keep it "old" looking.
I have this fork,knife and spoon stamp so I stamped the sides and sanded it a bit for a more worn look.
I will be adding this to my Etsy shop with more details about size soon.
I also primed my door in the mudroom, and worked on my piece for the Habitat Heroes make sure you check it out its a month long link party for a good cause, and you can win prizes at the end, also tomorrow look out for my guest post by the author of Gourmet Gifts, will be giving away a copy as well.
