Thrift Store Bowls


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?

  1. That is super cute - I have 4 or 5 in my cabinet that I always think "what if I have a salad party" {more likely to have a chocolate party} - I may have to try this!

  8. I'm in awe! Wow! That's a great project and something you can throw together for just a few bucks with items snagged at a thrift store. Stop by my Friday's Five Features and link up this post (and others)! http://diy-vintage-chic.blogspot.com/2013/08/fridays-five-features-no-4.html
