I’ve seen some dipped silverware around that I really like, but it’s out of my price range. I thought I could DIY a solution to make some cheap servingware that would stand out at our reception. So I picked out some pieces from the 6 for a dollar bin at our favorite thrift store, and literally dipped them in a bucket of old wall paint. I let that dry, hanging on some elephant clips overnight, and then dipped them in polyurethane the next day and repeated the process.  They’re not quite as durable or swanky as the real deal, but I think they will get us through a few hours and look smashing in a pumpkin pie.
