Intro: Revival of the Wood Pineapple Bowl
This gurl has OFFICIALLY DECLARED, hereby and forthwith--
2014 the YEAR OF THE PINEAPPLE!
(what's left of it anywayz)
There are some who declare Foxes, Anchors, Hedgehogs and such as 'THEIR' year--so why not a Pineapple?
You've seen them at the thrift gatherin' dust on the shelves of misfits. You know the ones. Fer cheap!
It never occurred to me that simply givin' 'em a coat of paint could TOTALLY change their life!
First, I painted the inside of each bowl with gold leaf.
(This picture isn't a pineapple, but hey! Leafy bowls are cool too!)
Then I used different colors of acrylic and painted just the top portion of each bowl with several coats.
After each one was dry, I sprayed 'em with a coat of clear paint.
After the clear coat dried, I rubbed the base side with olive oil to restore the natural look of the wood.
Aren't they gorgeous--in that 'mid-century modern' way?
