12 Minute DIY // Color Block Wood Bowls

Our first DIY of 2015! And of course we're keeping things simple with a brand new 12 Minute DIY. The color block trend has been going strong for a few years now but we're still loving it. Playing on that trend, we gave these little bowls a makeover. We're digging this subdued palette paired with the rustic warmth of the natural wood. These painted bowls were so simple to DIY and make such a pretty catch all for your keys, spare change, or jewelry.

Painted Wood Bowls //

Wood Bowls
Acrylic Paint
Painters Tape (or masking or washi tape)
Paint Brush
Spray Shellac or Clear Glaze (optional)

Use tape to section off a pattern of your liking. Apply 2 to 3 coats of acrylic paint, letting each coat dry between the next. Once the last coat is dry, peel off the tape and fix any little imperfections. Finish with a coat of clear glaze or spray shellac to prevent chipping.
