Thrift Store Bowls

7:07:00 AM

Thrift store bowls take on a new life...

You know the ones... they're everywhere...
the wooden salad bowls that nobody wants anymore...

Well I did... I started out by cutting one in half...

Then I screwed and glued them to the front panel 
of an old wine crate...

You can see the indent of the printing through the paint...

A coat or 2 of Annie Sloan Chalk paint later...

then distressing and a little dark wax to bring out the 
lettering on the wine crate...

Add a handle... (it's actually a metal zero but works for me!)

And I've changed those old bowls into a rustic wall hanging...

to be filled with flowers or make-up or keys or
something for your kitchen....

Any other ideas?
