Turn a thrift store cutting board into DIY Painted Geometric Pineapple wood sign. Hand-painted geometric pattern. See my pattern for painting triangle geometric patterns. See more of my fun tropical projects on my Boho Tropical page.
It’s time to get ready to refresh your space for Spring! See how I painted a Geometric Pineapple from a thrifted cutting board!
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 for what to do with this fun fruit shaped board. I saw pineapples in framed wall art, decorative pieces, fabric, and well, on just about everything lately.
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 you are 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!
DIY Painted Geometric Pineapple
- Pineapple Wood Cutting Board
- Acrylic Paint: Metallic gold, light, med & dark shades of yellow, light beige, dark beige, light blue, dark green, lime green, light & dark shades of teal and white
- Various size craft paint brushes
- Ruler & pencil
- Scrap piece of cardboard or cardstock
- Geometric Triangle Guide PDF
Start with a plain pineapple shaped cutting board.
Download 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.
Using a ruler, draw a line down the center of the pineapple.
Place 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.
When you are finished, use the ruler and go over all the lines you drew and make sure they are straight.
Now to paint, start with the dark teal and hand paint three random triangles. Repeat with all of the colors. I did mix a couple of colors with the white acrylic paint to make them lighter to add more interest to the color scheme.
Note: If you are not great at hand painting the triangles You can always tape off each triangle with painter’s tape to get clean lines. Make sure each color is completely dry before covering the next one with painter’s 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!
Like what you see I’d love it if you would share it!
I just made one for a preteen girl who wants to decorate her bedroom in a pineapple motif. But I also screwed hooks into the wood so she can hang her jewelry on it – added a little function to the fun! Thanks for the great idea!
That sounds so cute Tara!
‘Tis a thing of beauty! I love your funky colourful geometric pineapple.
