#205...spoon art

I was totally smitten with the hand-painted, vintage wooden spoon characters created by Fine Little Day, when I first saw them a few months ago. Over the holiday weekend, I painted some characters of my own for my kitchen.

I attempted to find old wooden spoons at my favorite resale haunts, but with no luck. So instead I visited Sur La Table, which offered a wide selection of wooden utensils (like these), perfect for painting, ranging in price from .50 cents to 5 dollars.

I used acrylic paints and matte spray varnished them for good measure.
