    This is so COOL! You did a great job with the silverware, got me thinking... brass candlesticks (part of or stripe, or all of it), kitchen hardware new color, tops of keys to identify, Lamp bases, metal bookends, hooks on the wall to hang clothes on,

    What kind of paint did you use and do you put them in the dishwasher? I wondered how durable the paint is. I like the look!

    For a casual look, you could use tool dip, which comes is several colors now.

    Dana M I used the Gloss Enamels from DecoArt! The paint just needs to cure for 48 hours and then you bake all the utensils in your regular oven at 350 degrees for half an hour to make them

    If you want to do this, use tool dip. it's a sort of rubbery concoction that holds up really well.
