I had both of these in my kitchen and it was feeling really drab in there. Needed a face lift. I won’t show you my kitchen because the whole thing needs a face lift but that is for someone else since we don’t own it. I perused the spray paint isle at walmart and came across this blue. I liked it and figured it couldn’t be worse than what I already had. I use the crock for utensils, like spatulas, large spoons, whisks, and such . A few coats of paint covered everything. Now when I’m in my kitchen my eyes catch on these great “new” pieces and it really does make me happy. I did sand the butcher block edges a little.
