Give Vintage Silverware A Dose Of Personality With Neon Paint (PHOTO)

We love scavenging for interesting finds at thrift shops and flea markets that have the potential to be transformed into unique pieces for our homes. But usually we pass over the boxes of old cutlery, since it's often a dime a dozen, and we're not really sure how to repurpose it -- until now.

Today's Craft Of The Day features Sonia Pell, a blogger who reminds us that it's never too late for a makeover. She shows us how to take vintage silverware and spray paint the handles in neon hues for a dose of personality.

The spunky spin she adds to otherwise aging flatware gives them a whole new look. With such vibrant colors juxtaposed against their patina, they make for exotic table displays. For more details about this craft and other ideas, head over to Sania Pell's website. Also, be sure to take a peek at other great DIY crafts in our Crafts of the Day slideshow below.
