Introduction: Geometric Wood & Copper Fruit Bowl
This is a quick and easy way to elevate a plain wooden fruit bowl and bring it bang up to date with geometric copper accents
You'll need a wooden bowl, masking tape and copper spray paint
Mark out your design with masking tape. I went for simplicity with retro looking, nesting triangles. You could do anything though. Stripes, chevrons, criss cross the tape randomly. Use stickers of different shapes and sizes instead of masking tape. Anything left exposed will be copper (or whichever colour you choose) and anything masked out will remain as it was. Plain wood
Spray and leave to dry for the time indicated on the can. Yes, I know. The base is going to be a funny mish mash of shapes once the tape is removed. You can always tidy up the base later by adding a disc of felt if this is likely to bother you, which I shall probably do at some stage...
Remove the tape and tidy up any rough edges with the edge of your nail and you're done!
It's so simple I know. But for me simplicity is beautiful, and it's the contrast between the shiny metallic copper and the softly aged natural wood that really works . Each one makes the other more gorgeous.
