For our kitchen I decided we needed some wall hooks to hang keys and other misc items on. My solution was to go to the salvation army and come home with some spoons and forks. They were cheap enough to bend by hand. Then went to AC Moore and purchase a wood plaque. Pre drilled the holes for it to be hung on the wall. Painted the plaque black and sprayed 2 coats of polyurethane on it. (side note: after I've looked at it enough kind of wished I would have found an older looking piece of wood or done some distressing to the paint job). After the plaque was dry I nailed the spoons and forks up. Put some sinkers into the wall and was done!
