DIY Neon Wooden Kitchen Utensils


As you may have read, I am knee deep in our ‘mini kitchen makeover’ with still lots to do but also the inspiration for today’s DIY project.  While styling my beautifully new white shelves we installed last weekend, an idea came to me to jazz up some of the old wooden utensils I’ve had for years.  This project isn’t hard and it didn’t take me long but I love the large effect it has.  I had bought some neon paint a few weeks ago knowing full well I would find some way to use them!

I started by picking out the utensils I wanted to use.


Then taping them off with some frog tape.


Here we have the first coat of paint applied.


It took about four coats to get decent coverage. As you can see, I couldn’t decide what color I wanted to use, so I went with one of each.  It worked out in the end because I kinda like the rainbow!  The frog tape did a great job at keeping the lines clean and crisp, just a little info incase your looking for a good painters tape.  I usually just use masking tape for small projects like this, but I had it laying around for another much bigger project so decided to give it a trial run.


After I was done painting them and they were completely dry, I tried them out around the kitchen, take a peek….









What do you think??? Super easy, but kinda cute, right? Hey, I was dying to hop on the neon train somehow and this little update worked!


happy friday
