DIY-geo-painted-containers-used-two-fun-and-simple-ways copyI am in looooove with how these turned out.  Ha ha I am not going to be humble here guys, the colors, shapes and everything just go so so well together.  These simple DIY painted wood containers have so much wow factor.

I mean, when I saw these plain wood geo boxes at Target it was love at first sight.  I KNEW I would find a good use for them, in fact I found TWO.  I mean the possibilities are endless.  So no matter what you end up doing with these colorful geo containers they will look fabulous!
Here are the two ways I styled these beauts.painted-geo-pot-two-ways

Although these containers are light weight, they are very sturdy and perfect holders for all those pesky office supplies.  I LOVE how they look on my desk, all bright, happy and fun.  Makes me look organized too (which is always nice, since I’m NOT)DIY-Geo-Painted-cups-to-hold-pens,-scissors-or-other-office-supplys

Another fun way to fill up these cute colorful containers are with succulents or cacti!  Gotta love me some succulents.  The great thing is that they don’t need to be watered much so your pot won’t get ruined.DIY-painted-colorful-pot-used-in-two-different-waysDIY-painted-geo-pots,-an-easy-DIY-that-is-colorful-and-fun

SUPPLIES:

-Wood Geo Shaped Containers- I got mine from target…here and here.
Martha Stewart Acrylic Paints:  you want to use a variation of one color per container.  For the pink I mixed some pink in with the orange and light pink to get a color that blended better.

Start by taping off sections of the geo pot to make more geometric shapes.  I wanted a lot of triangles on both pots so I just divided each section with tape and painted each one a different color.how-to-paint-a-wooden-potDIY geo painted pot 2
Continue taping and painting each section.  I would paint one section then let it dry before painting the other half of the triangle.diy-painted-pot
Then you are finished!! Time to fill them up :)geo-painted-pots-
