Not long ago I discovered the Mod Podge. And I don't know how I was living my life before that without it. You can pretty much turn anything from plain to beautiful with Mod Podge. Well, I decided to make over my knife block set. 

It went from plain:

To Pretty: 

And it really only took me about 1 and a half hours.

I actually got the idea of making over my knife block set from Pinterest. I had seen someone there who had painted theirs green. But I had a different idea. 

Here's what I used:

- Mod Podge in Gloss
- Decorative Paper 
- A paint brush
- Scissors
- Utility knife or stencil knife

So this was pretty straight forward. Mod Podge went on first with a brush. Then I pasted the paper, smoothing over and cutting the excess with the knife. Then I brushed Mod Podge over it to seal the paper on the wood. 

As you can see, depending on the shape of your knife holder, you might need to work with some tricky areas. But just be patient and do them in sections. After you brush the Mod Podge on the paper, it will look seamless. 

Then I just felt for the openings through the paper with my fingers and stuck the knifes in them :)

And there you have it, a fun looking knife block set!

I hope you try it and I hope I get to see your after pictures!!
