All over the the blogs all over the internet, crafters are painting up some bamboo utensils. I am no different! I absolutely love all of them I see coming and have had a really hard time choosing what color I want mine to be…
Rather than doing a solid color, I decided to go checkerboard. It’s a little bit more work, but in the end, I totally think it is worth it! Check it out!
For this project you will need:
Bamboo utensils (I got mine a set of two for $1 at Dollar Tree), acrylic paint in two colors, masking tape, brush, marker, polyurethane spray.
STEP 1: Lay out your tools side by side. Wrap tape around a similar point on all of them. From the tape to the end is where you are going to be painting, so tape accordingly. Using your base color, paint from the tape up. I used cream colored paint rather than white because I was going for an older look.
STEP 2: Draw on your checkerboard pattern with your marker. I made mine on each a little bit different so that they would really pop!
STEP 3: Fill in the checkerboard with black paint, remembering to alternate. I had one of those days where I couldn’t paint a straight line to save my life, but in the end, it looks kind of rustic so I dig it anyway! After your paint has dried, spray from the tape up with polyurethane to seal on the paint.
STEP 4: Allow to dry and remove the tape. Give them a good clean before using and you are all set to cook in style like Guy Buffet!
