Leaf It Out

Test Run - Work out color combos on a sample board to make sure you like the palette before you paint your final project. Here, a sample board tests out slightly overlapping the leaves which results in layers that create a jungle effect.

Give a cabinet personality with a façade of large tropical fronds. Stenciled on an artist's canvas from the crafts store, the fronds are rendered in three green hues. Stencil one leaf colour, let it dry, then reposition the stencil, slightly overlapping the first to add another colour. Turn the canvas into a door by screwing on hinges and a painted wooden knob.
