I see these old forks and spoons all the time when I am out thrifting and I remember a big set of them in my grandmother's house! Here are two ideas for ways you can update them. First I found a smaller set and mounted them on burlap inside a thrift store frame. I left them in their original finish and attached them to my burlap covered foam core with gorilla glue, you gotta love gorilla glue!
I found another larger set, believe or not, I did not find them in the same store on the same day! These were quite gunky from years of kitchen grease, so I scrubbed away and knew I would do a distressed finish in case the paint didn't adhere well in places. I love the color!
I'm fresh out of big forks and spoons but since both of these sold, I would pick up another set if I saw them cheap!
