This isn’t just any pineapple, I found this super cute cutting board at my favorite thrift store and I’ve been holding onto it for just the right upcycle.

In my search of what to do with this sweet fruit. I saw pineapples in framed wall art, decorative pieces, fabric and well, on just about everything the last couple of years. I knew I wanted to paint the pineapple and/or make it into a chalkboard. That is until I saw geometric pineapple prints! That was the ah-ha moment when I knew just what my pineapple was meant to be!

So I know what your thinking, I would love to make one of these but, how am I supposed to find a pineapple cutting board? Well guess what there are tons online you can pick one from the link in the below supply list and paint your own! Let me show you how easy it is to do!

Instructions:

Turn a cutting board into wall art Geo PineappleStart with a plain pineapple shaped cutting board.

Free Triangle guide for geometric patternDownload and print out the triangle guide page provided in the supply list above. Use the guide to cut out a triangle out of the cardboard. This will be your guide to draw the pattern on the cutting board. You will notice the L on one side of the triangle, this is the long side of the triangle. Take notice and draw the L on the cardboard triangle for future reference.

Draw a geometric pattern on woodUsing a ruler, draw a line down the center of the pineapple.

Use a guide to draw geo patternPlace your cardboard triangle at the bottom of the pineapple and draw the outline of a triangle with a pencil. Flip the triangle over and draw the next triangle repeat for the rest of the pineapple.

Use a ruler to check patternWhen you are finished use the ruler and go over all the lines you drew and make sure they are straight.

Paint colors in threes in patternNow to paint, start with the dark teal and hand paint three random triangles.

Note: If you are not great at hand painting the triangles You can always tape off each triangle with painters tape to get clean lines. Make sure each color is completely dry before covering the next one with painters tape or you could cause the paint to be removed when you remove the tape.

Touch up lines as you go, let it dry and that’s it!I can’t tell you how much I love this super cool wall art! This bright and colorful pineapple is perfect for the spring refresh in my home!

  1. Hi Kim, I recently saw your pineapple on a blog ( can’t remember which one) round-up of pineapple decor. Pat S

  2. Kim, The pineapple is a winner! I am glad you shared a link because not everyone will find one at the Goodwill but if I ever do I will snag it for this project. A lot of cute and creative ideas on the hop. The potty planter cracked me up but it sure looks cute.

  3. I LOVE the style of this! It’s making my eyes smile. It’s so modern and clean. Really, it’s making me think I could make any old thing look cool if I just followed your painting pattern as an example!

    Visiting as a fellow #DIYmySpring – er!

  4. What a fun shot of whimsy! I love all the colors and it takes me back to sweet memories of the Hawaiian vacations my husband and I have shared. A great way to welcome Spring! 😉

  5. HI Kim – I’m totally crushing on your pineapple! I’m allergic to them but absolutely love them so this is definitely one I can love! Visiting as a fellow contributor to #DIYMySpring. Hope your week is full of sunshine! Hugs, Holly
