I started this post way before it was due so let’s just begin by giving me a virtual high five okay?

High Five RW

See see?  A five.  And it’s high.  Way high.  Okay not that high, but it’s still pretty funny amiright?

Now that I’m done patting myself on the back I’ll just get right into the good stuff.  If you recall (of course you all recall, you’re all loyal die hard readers after all) Thrift Gift Facelift is a fun little exchange Supermom and I started to get our creative juices flowing, dust off our DIY skills and maybe even make some useful things for around the ol’ homestead.  We gift each other a thrifted, found or even no longer wanted item and then we remake it into something fabulous.  So far I think we’ve both done pretty well.  Pretty darn well.  Actually we both really rock at this.

There I go tooting my own horn again.

This month Supermom gifted me a pile of old silverware she was planning on donating to Goodwill.  There were a few other pieces in the mix, mostly knives, but I only photographed the ones I had plans for.

Silverware RW

Three forks and two spoons.

I knew what I wanted to do with them right away.  I didn’t know how I was going to accomplish my plan exactly, but I could see the finished product in my head clear as day.
