I love Annie Sloan chalk paints. They have a gorgeous consistency and are so easy to use. Better still, they are non-toxic, a key consideration for me and many other parents.

Dipping my toe in recently with a painted rolling pin, I've decided that I was going to brighten up some other kitchen implements. Initially I was tempted by turquoises, purples, and other soft colours. However, I had some red, white, and black left over from another project, so I couldn't justify more paint until I'd used that up.

I think the effect is actually really striking, and the red, white, and black set would look great in a contemporary kitchen.

Materials
Emperor's Silk chalk paint
Graphite chalk paint
Pure chalk paint
Wooden spatula
Masking tape
Brushes
Soft wax

Prepare the spatulas by washing them well in soapy water. This will clean off any residue and ensure the paint adheres.

Use the masking tape to mask off the area you are going to paint. For the spatulas that are asymmetric, I decided to mirror that in my design, so I carefully lined up the tape to be the same angle.

Apply the paint. You might need a couple of coats to get an even finish.

Wait for the paint to dry.

Apply a couple of coats of the soft wax with a lint-free cloth. Leave to dry.

Hang up in your kitchen - no need to leave these beautiful utensils hidden away in a drawer.

I'd love you know what kind of colour schemes you would use? I imagine mine being used in a modern high-gloss kitchen. What would go well with a Shaker style? Share your thoughts in the comments.
