Always find new uses for familiar thingsinteresting. Especially when it comes to interior decor. In our master class you will see how you can use ordinary tablespoons Summer is a great reason to replenish your wardrobe, make a new hairstyle and refresh the interior of your apartment. And if the implementation of the first two tasks set will certainly make your wallet lose a little weight, then the implementation of the third paragraph of the summer plan will not require additional costs - provided that you roll up your sleeves and do needlework. Better to start small. For example, replace boring furniture handles in the kitchen. To do this, you will need:

  • Old silver spoons;
  • Rubber hammer;
  • drill;
  • Screws;
  • Shtikhel (not necessarily);
  • Little perseverance.

As a result, you will become a happy owner of the original kitchen decor. Someone might be sorry to usesilver spoons, but in vain. Think about it: how often do you use them in everyday life? Silver spoons are surprisingly impractical. They heat up instantly, so eating hot soup with them or stirring sugar in a cup of hot tea is very uncomfortable. Of course, silver is a noble metal, but nowadays its price is low, so the cost of your new doorknob will be equal to the cost of quality hardware sold in the store. So isn't it time to get the dusty cutlery from the back of the kitchen cabinet and turn it into an exclusive decor? So, take the number of silver tablespoons equal to the number of handles needed for kitchen cabinets. Spoons can be the same or different (the variety of shapes and patterns will make your new furniture accessories even more original). First make the scoop scoop flat. Silver is a very pliable material, so you can achieve the desired result with a series of hammer strokes. To avoid unnecessary scratches and damage, use a rubber mallet. Now give the stem of the cutlery the shape of the door handle (to bend the spoon, enough strength of your hands). The next stage is engraving. If you want, you can skip it, but the small signatures on your pens will give them extra charm and personality. For engraving you will need a shtihel or a regular drill - in general, an acute metallic device, with which you will scratch your message. And do not worry about calligraphy: our goal is originality. After the spoon handle is ready, all you have to do isjust attach it to the cabinet door with a drill and screws. We recommend that you drill the appropriate holes at the top and bottom of the spoon in advance and only then screw it onto the furniture. That's all. Thanks to one creative idea, brought to life by your efforts, your kitchen set now looks refreshed and stylish! www.thistlewoodfarms.com
