knife block redo...

i still feel like this project is missing something...
but i'm going to post it anyways. =)

a can of spray paint goes a long ways!
after the mug tree i went on to think
"what can i paint next?"
and i came up with my knife block.

take a look at the pictures:

what do you think?
i like the difference it's made but it's still lacking something,
maybe a nice vinyl "L"
i loooove "L"s.
now i just need a cricut, everyone call my husband please?

hope everyone had a wonderful Monday! =)

i'm linking up to these parties:


  1. I love you knife block! I just did the same thing to mine a few weeks ago! I don't have a cricut either so instead I printed an "H" for my last name off the computer in black, taped it to a piece of white paper, cut the whole thing out, then once I had a white H I mod podged it to my kife block. It turned out great! You'd never know it wasn't vinyl!


  2. I love the look of this. You did a very nice job.

  3. Oh ya, a vinyl letter would look awesome! I did one like that in March if you'd like to see what yours will look like with a monogram. I love mine!


    Don't you just love black knife blocks? I think they make the kitchen look so much more classy!

  4. I love it! I want to do something to my knife block too. Maybe some paint and paper is just what I need to do!

  5. Love it! From eh to ooh with a few swipes of spray paint. Fantastic.

  6. Wow that looks great, I need to do that with mine!

  7. thanks everyone...!!! my husband even said wow!! so many more things to spray paint! =)

  8. That is a great idea. I just found out that my neighbor has a cricut I am so excited!

  9. What a fabulous transformation! I would have never thought to paint a knife block. Looks fantastic! Thanks so much for joining the Sunday Showcase Party! I greatly appreciate it. Hope you are having a wonderful week! ~ Stephanie Lynn
