My family eats 6-9lbs of bananas per week. That is about 18-24 medium bananas. Yes, I live with a bunch of monkeys (aka my husband and two boys).
The small blue metal colander I had on the counter to hold fruit, has become overwhelmed with the volume and no longer looks cute. It is filled to the brim with bananas and the overflow is eating up all my counter space to the left of the stove.
I needed a larger fruit bowl. I found a wire fruit bowl at HomeGoods for $14.99. I loved the modern shape, but not the antique bronze finish. I decided to spray paint it teal. Now I am totally in love.
I used Rust-Oleum spray paint in Satin Lagoon. Before spray painting, I used a spray primer in grey to coat the wire bowl. Then I did four light coats of spray paint to get a nice even finish.
I needed a new place for the larger fruit bowl. The small colander next to the bread box seemed to be swallowing my counter space already, so there was no way the larger fruit bowl would work in it’s place. I moved the bread box to the larger expanse of counter on the other side of the stove. That left this small counter open for my new fruit bowl and my awesome Tivoli radio. Love to listen to music in the kitchen!
The bright bowl, filled with bright fruits, is ready to usher in spring and summer. It was such a simple way to add a pop of color to the kitchen. Have you spray painted anything with a bold color lately?
