More Kitchen Accessory Tweaking!


In my last post I showed you my E.A.T letters/sign for above my kitchen cabinets.  Well, at a recent trip to Salvation Army, I came across these adorable wooden trivets.


I bought all three of them at .49 a piece! Can’t beat that, right?!!


I had no intentions on actually using them as trivets, but more so for use as wall art in my kitchen.  I spray painted them with Krylon spray paint.


Then I decided that I wanted to go ahead and give them a similar “glaze” treatment as I did with my EAT sign.


I dripped some of my raw umber craft paint along the trivet . . . .



and with a dry brush I spread the craft paint in and dabbed it in the deeper crevices. I then let it sit for a few minutes.IMG_9805

Then I dried my brush with a rag and dry-brushed the trivets to get the desired look I was going for.




I love the way they look and how they tie all of the blue-ish accents together in my kitchen, with an antique feel!

    So happy to have found you yesterday thru Noelle….I love these wooden trivets above your stove. I have a similar space above my stove and I walk through the thrift stores usually twice a week. I'll be on the lookout for something similar. Thanks for sharing your creativity. Beautiful!

    I love the colors in your kitchen! It's very inviting. I have seen those wooden trivets (or similar at least) before, in my thrift stores -guess I will be taking a closer look next time!

    I love that! – I have been looking above my stove and wondering what the heck to put there, I am sick of the white paint looking back at me LOL! I will be keeping my eyes open for some inspiration.
