This month I took on the THE “CENT-SATIONAL SALVAGE” CHALLENGE. In the challenge I’m tasked with transforming a common item found at my local Habitat for Humanity Restore center into something “cent-sational.” And I couldn’t spend more than $15. April’s featured building materials are kitchen utensils. Upcycling is a passion of mine and I had fun with this challenge. I was able to allow my creative juices to flow.
I thought I’d get in there and bend and twist the forks and spoons I found. Yea, that didn’t work.
Once sanded, I applied stain followed by shellac.
Once the board was dry I outlined the tic tac toe game with tape.
To add a little more visual interest I took some alphabet sticker letters and outlined Tic-Tac-Toe.
The game pieces are forks and spoons. To add visual interest to the forks and spoons I dipped both the forks and spoons in complementary paint and placed on disposable plate to dry.
Using the same paint I painted the cutting board using one color within the game and the other outside the game.
Once the paint was dry I removed the tape and stickers.
I then dipped the forks and spoons into the opposing color to make two-toned game pieces.
Using a gold leafing pen I outlined the game board providing golden highlights.
