My favorite DIY projects are absolutely the ones that are quick, simple and budget-friendly while still packing a big visual punch. This project fits that bill, making it one of my favorite recent DIY endeavors. We’re talking about taking basic, inexpensive thrift store flatware and making it something really special with the addition of a metallic finish. I chose copper, but you can customize it with whatever finish speaks to you. So easy, so pretty. I think this entire project cost me about $6, including the paint, the majority of which I have left for another project. Love that!

  1. Hi, can you wash them in the dishwaser?? I would like to do this on some cutlery and use them daily but I’m to lazy to wash them by hand every. :)

    1. Hi Jessica! While I get your concern, there is really nothing unsafe about this project. The parts of the utensils that come in contact with food are covered at all times and are not altered in any way. I hope this helps and thanks! :-)

  2. Thanks, Monique! Thanks, Courtney! And yes, light pink for Valentine’s Day would be so pretty! Best thing is this is so inexpensive you could do it as often as you like for any occasion. :-)
