DIY Kitchen Wall Art {Using Random Forks}

3 Materials
Are you up for a fun, easy, and CHEAP diy project today?! Well, if you are- this one is for you!
A couple of days ago, I was looking through some drawers in my kitchen for a specific utensil when I ran across a bag of mismatched silverware. I had totally forgotten I had this bag, and to be honest- I can’t figure out how in the world I end up with all of this randomness anyway! But, I really didn’t care how I ended up with them, I knew I could make something pretty cool with some of the random forks, so I got to work.
I gathered up 4 different forks, all different sizes with different designs, and laid them side by side.
I think it is neat how they are all so different.
I knew I had a white washed pallet board in the garage that I had used for my Spring Pallet Sign, so I went and found it and laid the forks out to see how it would look if I had them going down in a row. Well, needless to say- I loved it!
The next step was spray painting the forks. I didn’t want the traditional silver color, so I got my trusty gray spray paint and did a quick spray down. It covered so quickly, and they dried in no time, even with the extreme heat.
When completely dry, I laid them back on the pallet board the way I had them before, and I proceeded to hot glue each one on. In about 3 minutes tops, I was done!
Here are some close ups of the painted forks on the pallet board.
And here is my new kitchen piece hanging in all of its glory! I. LOVE. IT.
Seriously, this is such a unique piece…and for no money out of my pocket, because I had all of the supplies on hand. So- for $0 and about 15 minutes total, you can have one for yourself! What’s holding you back?? Don’t want to use forks? Use an assortment of silverware! Use different colors or use all spoons or knives! There are tons of different options here.

    In checking out your backsplash post saw your counter tops were different. What did you use there? Paint or replacement?
