You can easily turn your rusty or barely used flatware into a beautiful, one-of-a-kind piece of art or decor, like this sunburst mirror! These five projects are easy to do and instantly spruce up your living space while making room in your drawers!
How cute is this mirror made by Bev of Flamingo Toes? This beauty is made with all things you can find at home, like old silverware, cardboard, a hot glue gun and an old china plate! This project would also work with plastic spoons if you had them, but we love the vintage, rustic look you get with the slightly tarnished flatware. You can also use all forks, knives or spoons if you'd prefer a consistent look. This mirror would look fabulous in a modern or rustic kitchen, living room or study, don't you think?
This is one lamp that will have everyone who comes over in complete awe. This project is a little cumbersome and requires an intermediate level of craft skill, but the end result is completely worth the time it takes to make. This one-of-a-kind lamp would sell for thousands at an antique or specialty store and makes the perfect statement piece for any room. You could also forgo the lamp base and construct a hanging chandelier with your flatware too, like this one on Etsy! Photo provided by Four Corners Design.
Who said you had to stick to boring prints or canvases when you decorate your walls? Instead, use those piles of old silverware you have and that tacky gold frame your aunt gave you for your wedding and create one-of-a-kind artwork! This easy and fun tutorial by Spunky Junky takes ordinary materials and turns them into vintage, rustic artwork for the kitchen! While she chose to spray paint the silverware to match the white of the frames, you can keep them as they are for an even more unique look. Photo provided by Spunky Junky.
This one is cheating a little, since it uses plastic spoons. However, with all of the summer picnics and 4th of July barbecues behind us, there's a good chance you have more plastic utensils than you do regular! If that is the case, don't toss them out or let them take up space in your already crammed drawers. Instead, spray paint them with some bright and fun colors, glue them together and make this fun wreath! It is such a cute addition to a nursery, bright bedroom or fun, country kitchen. Plus, it's cheap and easy to make!
How innovative is this? This old fork place card holder is a perfect idea for dinner parties, cocktail parties or even weddings! In addition to entertaining, these holders could also work in everyday decorating! Use one of these as a recipe card holder, a business card holder or a place to hold important mail! This instantly adds a fun vintage vibe to your kitchen or entry way, but helps you de-clutter as well. Photo provided by Living with Lindsay.
