Hello and Happy Monday! Hope you all had a wonderful weekend!
Today I'd like to share with you a recent fun makeover of mine! I've transformed several sets of giant wooden vintage fork and spoons, but had never found a pair as unique as these! The details are amazing, and feature a heavily hand carved design that I think is so pretty! Of course, they didn't begin life looking this good. Oh no!
This is what they looked like when I first discovered them a few weeks ago. Ok, but destined for fabulous!! I was nearly jumping up and down with excitement when I first spotted them in the window of a thrift shop one morning. The shop hadn't opened yet for the day, but when it did, I made a bee line for these babies as quickly as I could! I immediately knew that they just had to be painted turquoise!!
Some distressing, and my favorite Ralph Lauren antiquing glaze, and viola! They have gone from drab to fab!
And here is the big reveal! These puppies are really big, measuring over 2 1/2 feel long!
