I love spray paint
I love how spray paint can give items an quick and cheap update. I always have black and white spray paint on hand just in case the painting bug strikes. My favourite spray paint project so far was turning this thrift store beauty into a modern "Jonathan Adler-ish" lamp. You can read more here.
While I was waiting for the paint to dry on the lamp I was itching to spray paint something else. My eyes scanned the kitchen counters (cue the Jaws soundtrack ) and I spied my knife block. It was a bit blah.
Why not spray paint it black to blend in with my ugly lovely gas stove? Using some spray primer and then 2 coats of black semi-gloss the knife block went from blah to hurrah! It cost me absolutely nothing!
Now my block is sleek looking and blends in, maybe no one will notice the mismatched knives!
