I picked up these wooden utensils for pocket change at Ikea (they’re a lot more “pared back” than this more expensive set, but I don’t have a “before”. Just picture plain wood utensils). I intended to use them for the play kitchen Hubs and I DIY’d. But then I realized how small kid’s hands are (really, really small) and came to my senses. These would be like lacrosse sticks for my wee little cousins! I have a real issue remembering what size kids are. Buying kid’s clothes is a nightmare plus I’m always buying too-advanced books and games.
So the utensils sat, half-finished, in the basement for awhile, until I recently decided to just wrap up the project and use them for myself! I did the same thing I did for my last set of dipped spoons (which had been grabbed from the drawer as an experiment, not like this squeaky clean brand new set I got to “dip”).
Some folks have used food safe paint and varnish for their dipped spoons, which is a fabulous idea. The painted part of my other spoons never touches the food, so mine haven’t posed an issue even though I’ve used latex paint and regular varnish.
A bit of a repeat performance, I know, but I had to share. Plus, you got a glimpse of my new Pyrex bowl. I have two of the gooseberries on white – recently thrifted. I’m missing the other two to make a set . . .
P.S. Don’t forget, these are hand wash only.
