Cooking in Color

Let's be honest, I'm a little OCD about things matching. So with just few shades of Apple Barrel acrylics and a sponge brush, I created a monochromatic kitchen set. 

It's a simple way to add a splash to your serving utensils—either to match a zealous kitchen scheme, or as a sweet little hostess gift. 

I left the paint thin so the grain would show through. I predict this will prevent it from chipping off during washing. I also think you could obtain a great ombre effect using a pot of rit dye and a dipping method. Next time!


  1. Those look awesome, Danny. I also love the silverware handles-dipped-in-bright-paint look.

    1. There's something very pantone-esque about it that really appeals to me.

  2. I love this idea! Keep the DIY projects coming!
