Tired of cutlery that lacks flamboyance? Always wanted to color coordinate your forks? Then try – “dip dyed” flatware! (It’s not actually dip dyed, it’s spray painted, but it achieves the same look.)
When I saw this idea on Pinterest, I immediately knew that I needed to do this. My office kitchen never seems to have any forks. I guess that they accidentally get abducted and never break free. And due to a completely unrelated reason, I have a few unmatched forks. So I thought I’d give them a a makeover.
This project took only about 5 minutes, including the 60 seconds to shake up the can of paint. Once I covered the tine-side with some paper and tape, then I gave the handles a quick spray of primer. I let it dry for an hour, as per the paint’s directions, and then sprayed it with a canary yellow. One coat was enough; they already made it through the dishwasher.
Don’t they look great? Office lunches are going to be great, and I’ll never have to eat my salad with chopsticks again!
