Guess what today is?
First day of school! First day of school!
Yes. You have to say it like Nemo.
Not only did I go back to work, but today I start my Master’s degree program. Work is paying for it 100%, so I’m getting my MBA. Free is free, right?!? At this point I have long term goals with my new company and the MBA will only do good things for my future career path. It’s only 1 class per quarter, and I’m pretty sure if I hunker down I can pull this off.
Wish me luck?
Oh, and it’s spring…did you know? I wanted some happiness in the kitchen so I headed over to Pinterest to see is anything caught my eye. Sure did! See. I grabbed my knife block and spruced her up.
Painted Knife Block
Standard wood finish knife block – take all the knives and stuff out
Medium grit sand paper
Acrylic paint – Tahiti Blue
Spray paint – White
Painted wood decoration
Grab your basic wood finished knife block. Boring! rub the entire surface of the knife block – sans knives – to remove any finish or grease.
Blow away any dust on the block. Wipe knife block with a damp paper towel.
Paint the knife block with your acrylic paint.
I liked the color a lot, but a basic blue wasn’t enough. She needed some pizzazz. The only thing that blue made me think of was tri-fives. Apparently I drank the Kool-Aid.
I went Googling and found this picture.
- Measure 1 1/2″ up from the bottom of the knife block back, and draw a straight line across the back.
- From the top side edge, measure out 3″ (1 1/2″ past were the first line stops). From the bottom corner, measure out 1 1/2″ diagonally.
- Connect a line from the back 1 1/2″ spot to the diagonal 1 1/2″ spot.
- Connect the diagonal 1 1/2″ spot to the top corner of the side.
- Connect a straight line from the top corner to the bottom corner.
