Bye Bye Boring Knife Block


We have a SUPER cheap-o knife block set --
that I've had since college!
{a good 'ol Target special, i'm sure}

It's definitely on our LONG list of things to upgrade ...
but for now - it's at the bottom of the list!

I hated it.
It was so ugly. 
so boring.
so cheap looking.

so I did what any good DIY'er would do.
I SPRAY PAINTED IT!
{duh}

{Rustoleum is my fave!}
and now?
I kinda love it. 


It's beautiful.
{can a knife block be beautiful?}
 It makes me happy.
{does that make me weird?}

But just take another look ....


does that not make you smile?
 or at least make you want to chop something?

please say you agree! :)
I'm quite giddy over my knife block transformation.
{and the monogram!}

Oh - and here's a little ditty for ya -- I've had my Silhouette since DECEMBER and I FINALLY cut my first piece of vinyl yesterday. I was so afraid to try. but now? I'm in LOVE. and I want to put vinyl on everything. It's soooooooo easy!! L.O.V.E.

want to see another beautiful knife block?
My sweet friend Natalie over at Johnny in a Dress has a FANTASTIC one!
Oh you haven't heard of her blog?
Well it's AMAZING - so you should run over there now! ;)
and tell her hello - because we all love comments!
