I showed your this giant vintage set in this thrifted finds post eons ago. They’re made out of some kind of resin, and are marked Dart Ind on their backs, and 1976 is in roman numerals.
(Insert Crappy Photo alert here.)
Crappy Photo Alert!!! Crappy Photo Alert!!!
Too late… you already saw it. lol.
Okay, maybe giant is a bit of a teensy weensy overstatement for this spoon and fork set… but they are really big.
Spray paint to the rescue… dun da da da… again.
Why is it that so many things from the 70s need rescuing? lol.
At least the things I find anyways.
I just rediscovered this set as I was going through stuff in my craft room. I put them into a donate box and somehow they found their way out again.
I swear I had nothing to do with it, but I decided to reward their escape with a long overdue makeover.
Their time had finally come.
This was one of the easiest makeovers ever.
All I did was give them two light coats of a paint and primer combo spray paint.
Then I sanded the raised parts with a sanding block.
A little here… and a little there.
And then I gave them a coat of a spray matte urethane.
I left the back unpainted as a reminder from whence they came.
Here’s the before again.
And here’s my finished veggie spoon and fruity fork. So much better… for me anyway. This was such an easy makeover, and probably took about 10 minutes… not including paint drying time.
It’s a long weekend here … YAY!!! So it’s time to play! YAY!
Have a wonderful weekend everyone.
Thanks so much for reading, and until next time…
