Vintage Spoon Rack Makeover

G'day friends and welcome to another week! Thanks for visiting me today. I hope you can stay for 5 minutes so I can show you my Vintage Spoon Rack Makeover

A while ago I blogged about my very messy spoon drawer....

I really wanted to display these spoons but I didn't want to spend a lot of money. A couple of weekends ago when we went to look at the local antique markets I found this old spoon rack.

I decided that I would give it a quick coat of paint and pretty it up a bit!

I found some left-over sample pots from when we renovated our kitchen, mixed a few colours together with some white paint and made a pale grey colour.

And Voila! After 2 coats of paint and a little light sanding I finally have somewhere to display my spoon collection!

I am now trying to find some nice old plates to display on the other side of the painting.

I am so happy that my spoons are now on display. My daughter is making a little felt decoration for me to place at the top of the rack so that I can cover up the hook. I will hopefully be able to share pictures of her little creation soon.

Thanks again for visiting and I hope that you have a fantastic week. Be sure to check out this week's Say G'Day Linky Party for more makeover, tutorials, recipes, crafts and inspiration!

  3. The color is perfect for the silver color spoons. The photograph coloring pulls the two pieces together. Very nice!

    I hope you'll drop by AtticMag this week to tour my home.

  7. Natasha,
    Now you have an extra drawer to fill as well. Love what you did to the spoon rack. Have you looked for decorative hooks. Sometimes they are in framing shops and I have found some pretty designs like that.

    Happy Monday,
    Debi

  12. Hi not sure how I found you, was surfing.

    You are only the second person I know who collects spoons! My mum has been collecting for years and years, even now she asks me to get her one. The last one I bought her was of Titisee in Germany.

  17. How lovely! What an awesome find and how perfect it looks painted instead of dark wood. Nicely done.

    Thank you for stopping by and commenting. Glad you loved the little jars. Funny how I never thought to pick them up until a few months ago. I am always on the look out now, but then so is everyone else.

    the world. she kept her spoons on a rack

  21. I would love to spend at least five minutes with you every day. Your blog is beautiful.

    I have three beautiful cloches in the cave and I only take them out in the summer. I do love them. I think I'll bring one up and see what I can do with it.

    You've inspired me.

    It is so lovely to have found you and I see from the list of comments here many of my friends think you're special too.

    Warm regards,
    Tish

  22. The gray is a nice update. It showcases the spoons without the sharp contrast of the old brown.

  23. Thanks to my friend "Anne" further up this comments page finding you while surfing, here I am as well!
    Your Blog looks fun and I will be back:)
    I like how you have displayed your spoon collection. Have you visited all those places? I spotted one from Stonehenge, some of our family live in Salisbury.

  29. I got my new buttons posted to a post tonight but I don't have the code listed yet--I will get that done tomorrow.

    The move has been WONDERFUL but there has been a lot to do, doing this on my own for the most part.

  42. Natasha, your spoon rack is wondeful! I love the paint. I bet it's nice to have a place to organize all your pretty spoons!

    I just looked at your oatmeal cookie post. I like how you added the nutty health mix to give it a little crunch. I will have to try that, they look healthy and delicious. Thanks!
