Okay, here it goes. One of my big pet peeves – and something so small and insignificant – is coffee stains on my kitchen counter. You know how sometimes people put the milk and sugar in their coffee, stir it around and then put the wet spoon on the countertop!? Ugh, makes me want to scream. Unfortunately it happens A LOT in my house, considering that we are big coffee drinkers and have a shortage of spoon rests. So this past weekend, we took it upon ourselves to make some new, homemade spoon rests. The bottoms of small flower pots make the perfect size spoon rest for a little teaspoon.
We had terracotta flower pots – like the teeny tiny ones for seedlings – and used the bottom trays.
We spray painted them bright colors and after they dried, we used Mod Podge to adhere some pretty paper to the inside of the tray. (If you cover the whole thing with Mod Podge, you get a clear, shiny coating.)
