Thrift Store Pedestal Bowls

Everyone loves a good DIY for wooden pedestal dishes.

When I first saw these I thought it was a great idea and I wanted to make my own.  

I found the wooden bowls and the wooden candle sticks at my local Goodwill. I'm adding my affiliate links so you can use some of the products I use on my projects. Click on the bold lettering for the links. 

I used Gorilla wood glue to attach the candle sticks to the bowls.

The pedestal dishes are painted with a chalky white paint

When the paint was dry I distressed the edges with sandpaper.

I sprayed the pedestal dishes with clear sealer to protect and seal the finish and they are ready to go! 

Couldn't be easier!

For another look I added a painted wooden cheese tray with a cloche lid.

Keep your eyes out at the thrift store for things you can update with just a coat of paint! 

You can decorate your whole house with things found at the thrift store and made over like all the items in the photo above.
