Of course these aren't genuine vintage rolling pins. I know they don't even look close, but they were my shot at adding a little character to the brand new ones. I love rolling pins. I have them stashed here and there all over my house. But I don't care for them much, when they are brand new and plain. Now the older ones, I'll never touch with a paint brush. lol. Just the new ones. I got mine at the local Dollar Mart for only $1.39 each. Awesome! Here's one in the brand new form:
First I painted each handles a kitcheny color. I went with regular red, blue and colonial green.
Then I took a lead pencil and drew on a few sayings. The "Dairy" idea stemmed from a photo of a board I saw over at a blog called MissMustardSeed, where my total inspiration for this post came from, actually!Her blog is awesome, btw, and you definitely should check it out!
Then I painted in the letters with an off white, let it dry, then lined each outline in the matching color. I skipped finishing the blue handled one for now because I have other plans for it soon! :-)
I let them dry, then hang them up on my hand made rolling pin holder. (CLICK HERE to view the post where I made rolling pin holder.) And wa~la. Here they are.
What do you think? Do you like the plain ones or the painted ones best?
