My knife block has always bugged me- sticking out like a boring brown sore thumb in my kitchen. So, I decided to test out some colors to go along with my counter decor.
Spray Paint color of your choice
Step 1- Prime
Apply a layer of primer – I actually used a white paint primer combination* I got at the mismatch bin* at Lowe’s (for $5!)
For the white knife block, I wanted a striped look. I grabbed the tape and created my design.
You can also add pieces of tape into the individual knife slots, in Block A mine was mostly covered, so I just used caution around the slots. (Block B, I did add tape to the slits)
*Please note, spray paint is not food safe, so use caution!
Step 3- Spray paint Lightly coat when spray painting, allowing each layer to dry and repeat a layer until you get your desired color. (For more spray paint tips, check out my blog post on 5 Simple Tips To Make Spray Painting Easy)
I bought the knife blocks for $.90 at the thrift store to test out the look and am having trouble choosing my favorite for my kitchen! I know I want blue, but not sure which look!
