A Giant Pair of Silverware!

As I was walking through Savers in Kansas City with my cute mom-in-law, I think she must have thought I was crazy when I saw this fork and spoon and had to have them! Little did she know that I had been seeing them around blog land, and in Pottery Barn, and knew it had to be destiny! Total for my blue metal utensils~6 bucks. I had first planned on spray painting them oil rubbed bronze, but they were out at Walmart and I am not the most patient person,( I wanted to do it now!) so I just sprayed them black.

and hung them by my sink!
I heart them!


I had to post a picture of the cute chicken I got at Hobby Lobby for 80% off! I think she is adorable! Total ~3 bucks!


And here is where I got my inspiration!
Kimba At A Soft Place To Land, inspires us daily! Here is her version!




And Chris at Just a Girl is amazing! Here is her version.
I am now prepared, if a giant ever decides to drop in for dinner!:)

Welcome to the giant fork and spoon club! I have a set too. I painted my black and love them. I hung mine in my dining room. Yours are pretty with the openness on them :)

What a steal! They are super cute - and added bonus that they match the piece above your window so nicely. I am laughing at you painting them black b/c I recently did the same thing with some pots I was painting...why are they always out of ORB at Wal-Mart? It's the best. :)

Isn't it cool when your version is cooler than the inspiration piece? I love how girly yours are - black looks great in the kitchen too!
