D.I.Y Cutlery Upcycling
In drawers, attics and thrift stores of the world, stacks of cutlery just keep piling up. Although we might on occasion appreciate antique cutlery, most of us stick to our everyday IKEA sets, leaving inherited sets or thrift finds all packed up. This fact made me search for reuse ideas, and my gosh, there are tons out there! Here are my top-10 doable D.I.Y picks – enjoy!
1. Neon Tips
A splash of neon adds contemporary vibe in an instant.
