MY DIY | Copper Wood Slice Teakettle Trivet
This wood slice was an impulse purchase at the craft store without a plan for it, then I got a teakettle and the wheels started to turn! I wanted a place to set my kettle after boiling my water, and this was the perfect fit. Instead of leaving it natural, I use two of my favorite spray paints: metallic copper and faux stone, to upgrade it. Super simple, but it turns a wood slice into a super chic spot for your teakettle! Details after the break.
What to do:
First spray your entire slice copper. Let dry.
Tape off one side of your slice with the painters tape. Cover the entire side you don’t want sprayed with stone.
Spray on a light coat of stone spray, let dry. Then spray again until the area is covered. Let dry for 24 hours.
NOTE: I did not add a sealant, and have tested it out a few times and so far the surface has help up great! I have a feeling the stone side might wear down with repeated use. You might want to stick with just using the copper on the surface if you are looking for longevity.
