Mint and Gold Pineapple Bowl Revived || Pinterest Challenge June


Ah you know, it's just the end of June and the temperature is supposed to be 104 degrees tomorrow! I know, I'm a total wuss, but folks I live in the Pacific North West, we rarely get 100 degree weather days; we usually start melting when it hits 80. Seriously, the perfect summer weather is what I love most about PNW. Well, we will somehow survive. Thank goodness for a.c.

And to cool things off, how about some more pineapple loving for you today. I just can't seem to stay away from it. I figured my gold pineapple mold art was the right amount of pineapple for our house until I came across this vintage Hawaiian pineapple bowl at the thrift store and I just couldn't pass it up.

not too long ago I came across this beautiful revived pineapple bowl over at Maize Hutton and didn't realize that I found a similar bowl until I came across her blog post again. The stars were definitely aligned for this project.

I decided on an overall gold color (mostly because I still had some left over from my pineapple mold art and pineapple canvas art). Although I feel that I can only handle so much gold in my decor, gold just feels right for pineapple. 

DIY Mint and Gold Pineapple Bowl

Vintage wood bowl (you can find some vintage pineapple bowls on etsy)
Gold Spray Paint
Acrylic craft paint (color of choice)

||1|| Spray your bowls in gold first. Let dry. 
||2|| I just wanted the top to be painted, so I taped to make sure I got good lines (I don't always have a steady hand). Then I painted my mint on top.

    1. I know, it was really easy to do and if I did mess up I think it would have been easy to fix.

  4. I love the new look you've given this old wooden pineapple. I saw someone else had painted an old 70's wooden serving dish a while back and wished I hadn't got rid of the ones my mum had back in the 70's, then just last week I saw a cute triangular wooden dish in a charity shop and snapped it up. Not quite as cute as your pineapple but I see a spray of gold (and maybe a pop of another colour) in it's future now....

    1. It's amazing how often I've come across wooden bowls. However, my husband would not be happy if I came home with any more, haha.
