When I painted our knife block on a whim, it never dawned on me to see if there were other knife block makeovers around – turns out that quite a few people have painted their knife blocks!
I love this project because it makes use of something most people already have (and might hate). Our knife block wasn’t just plain, it was also very shabby. I still feel this sense of pride that I used what we already had, saving us money. I DIY a lot so this isn’t really new, but there’s something about this project (because it’s something I use daily, and not an accessory or art) that feels like I accomplished something.

Although simply painting a knife block is enough effort to make it look good, I think the extra work of painting the silhouettes of the knife blades makes this one look really polished.
This one isn’t a tutorial – but I love the inspiration for a dipped knife block, especially one with a rustic feel.
P.S. I saw this one on Pinterest and it looks so familiar. I’m flattered!
