Add a pop of color to your kitchen with a Painted Knife Block. A quick and easy DIY project!

A painted knife block is an easy way to add a pop of color to your kitchen! This tutorial shows you how!
A couple of years ago I gave my knife block a DIY makeover with some sandpaper, a little bit of paint, and a vinyl decal. It went from plain old ugly stained wood to this:

So I busted out the sandpaper, paint, and vinyl again.  For the accent color in my kitchen, I am using a light aqua blue color. I bought a can of latex paint for some shelves I’m going to build, so I used it on my knife block. And voila, it has a totally new look!

I love how cheery and bright this color is. (Although it’s a little more subdued than the photos show.)

  1. Did you have to use any top coating to protect it or just paint?? I love this!

  2. I’ve got to say this is a different style of kitchen accessory! Even though it’s completely different I think that it is in a good way! It stands out and that is what you want you Kitchen Decor to do.

  3. What a great and useful way to add a splash of color to your kitchen! The color you picked is so fun!

  4. I love the blue that you chose, and the bracket shape with that C is perfect. 🙂
