Me and my hubby live in a rental so we are limited on what we can do to decor wise. We cannot paint walls or upgrade things. My boring little kitchen needed a little color and me in it. I love the color orange and I love pigs. So I grabbed my knife wood block and a wood pig plaque my mom gave me.
Both needed a little TLC and pizazz. I decided to paint them a pumpkin orange. I had a small tester bottle of the exact orange that I wanted to use. I purchase this at walmart for a couple dollars. these are kind of nice for smaller jobs and the lid has an attached brush. bonus. If you are interested in the color it is a better homes and garden brand, item # BHG418 Mango Mania. I painted the whole knife block except the bottom and the pig I only painted the top and sides. note: when painting the wood block, to keep the metal plaque on the front from getting painted I covered it with masking tape.
Once the orange paint was dry, I applied 1 coat of clear sealant and let dry for a couple hours.
Now I pulled my cricut and my "make the cut" design system out and cut out 2 "H"s and 3 fun frames to surround the H's for the wood block and then I cut out the saying "Never Trust a Skinny Cook" all using black vinyl. Vinyl has become such a popular and stylish way to add a bit of you to walls and decor. when I got my decals where I wanted them I just used a credit card to rub over the tops of them to help them stay on. and there you have it.
Hope you enjoyed this project!!
