Over-sized Silverware

Happy Tuesday!  Hope you are all well.  I'm posting a tad late tonight.....due to a fun and busy day.  We went to my sister's house for a swim today and then got a surprise visit from my sister-in-law and her kids.  It's always fun to see them!  The evening was beautiful and the kids rode their bikes.

I found these pieces of over-sized silverware at a garage sale last summer. I just think they are fun...and I know Pottery Barn used to sell them.  I am not sure they still do....but when they did, they were quite expensive.  Here's my find.....


I thought it would be neat to make them look like actual pieces of silverware.  I happened to have a can of brushed nickel spray paint....so that's what I used.
Here they are.....I love them.  They add a bit of character to my kitchen!!!



Have a great evening!  If you're reading....ThAnKs!!

  9. Amazing you made your's look like real silverware!
    I had some I painted black... which I love. But I had a wood one similar to your's...and painted them black too, and sanded them down a little. The thing about these pieces... you can make them fit any style! I remember these when they were "IN" back in the day. I know telling my age. Ssshhh!

    love yours in your kitchen. They looks so great!
