I've been meaning to do this for months now! Even have a couple pages bookmarked but yours it the most gorgeous one I've ever seen and I'm absolutely doing it this afternoon!!
It looks so nice, and like it came that way! I'm jealous of your silhouette. I have an old Cricut... It works, but I'd love to ditch the cartridges and use the computer like you can with a silhouette!
cute idea - so much more charming now :)
I am so doing this! Thanks Nat!
I love that! I've never thought to redo my knife block, now I totally want to do it.
That is really really cute! thanks for showing us all your projects!
this is a great idea...might have to try my own version on my boring knife block...thanks for sharing at ff!blessings,alisonstuff and nonsense
Ummmm.. I kind of want this in my kitchen. I love it! My kitchen is already green, so I'll have to find a different color to do mine! I've been dying to try this though!
Thanks for linking up at Fav Things Friday last week. I featured this awesome makeover!http://thespeckleddog.blogspot.com/2011/03/favorite-things-friday-no-17.html
That is SUCH a great idea!I hate knife blocks!! I am so going to find mine somewhere in my shed a fix er up!!!Thanks
BTW - I am totally doing this tonight!! Thanks for the idea!!
Jessica - PLEASE email me a pic of yours! I LOVE to see what other people do with my ideas! Yay!
LOVE IT! I'd love to know your painting technique
Ahhhh, so cute and easy! I am doing this today!!!Beth
I did the exact same thing (same color even) with my grandma's old blender that she gave me. Check it out: http://rebeccamlippert.blogspot.com/2010/12/whole-mess-of-things.html
can you please tell me what kind of paint you used?
Thanks everyone!!! We just LOVE it! I used Krylon's Ocean Breeze and then Ivy leaf on top. Then I sanded it down so that the blue would show!
Okay so we must share the same love of colors... I didn't even read your last comment until after I finished redoing mine! We chose the exact same color (weird) except I didn't do the ivy along with it. Anyhow I wanted to share with you my version of your awesome creativity!! http://www.pinneditmadeit.com/2011/08/kitchen-knife-block-re-do.htmlThanks for the wonderful idea!!!
I just saw this on pintrest. What a great idea! I will be adding this to my September to-do list!
Hi Natalie, I'm so impressed with your ingenuity! I've got to give this a try.Warmly, Michelle
Love this idea and I honestly never thought of doing it. But I DO hate looking at that ugly brown thing on my counter. Thanks for the inspiration! I'm a new follower.Lisahttp://mamalousgems.blogspot.com/
Love this idea, can't wait for the weekend so I can get started on it! What color is that green? It's gorgeous!I'm also a new follower.
how did you get the P on there?
The "P" was cut using my Silhouette in vinyl.
How did you keep from getting the paint in the holes for the knives?
I know you private messaged me the name of the color but I can't find it. Can you give it to me again.Thanks,Jennifer from Just Wedeminute--
What type of paint did you use?
This is awesome! love it... im going to try it this weekend! i also would love to know what kind of paint you used and how you keep the paint out of the knife slots! ...
This looks incredible! I just did mine yesterday (with red and then blue) and love it but can't seem to find a font that I like as much as yours. What font did you use for your P?THANKS so much for sharing this! All I have to do it cut out my letter and I'm done with mine! :0)~robin
I did it! Here is mine:http://cajungal01.blogspot.com/2011/11/cuttin-pretty-now.htmlThanks again for the inspiration! :0)~robin
This is so creative and was wondering about the paint technique. Do you paint and then sand to get the finish or just stain??
I love the idea! I think I'll use a design instead of an initial. Thanks for the inspiration!
Love it, great idea! One question -- I guess you sanded it, then painted it with acrylic paint, but what did you seal it with? I want to be able to wash it off because mine sits next to npmy stove and gets greasy. Thx!
