Wooden Bowl Tiered Tray

Those wooden bowls are from the thrift store.

You know them, you've seen them there... 

But do you really know them?

A large salad bowl and 8 smaller wooden bowls were $2.99. 

But it was 1/2 price day! 

I brought them home and using a section of a chair leg, 
I stacked the bowls then screwed them together. 

To make these lovely tiered trays, I drill through the bowls
and into the post. 

Using double sided screws (affiliate link) I glued and screwed the pieces together.

Those bowls ain't going anywhere!

I painted the tray with Annie Sloan Chalk Paint in Empire Red then used a dark wax.

Gorgeous red bowl just in time for 
Valentine's Day decorating!

  1. I love them. That is something I believe I have on my Pinterest board… "I NEED TO MAKE". HA. I think some times that having a creative mind hinders progress. You are constantly looking for more things to create and don't do any of them. Looks great!

  2. What a great idea! I love the color :)

    Have a blessed day,

  3. Ok, so I'll won't be walking past the next set of these I find at my thrift store! Love your other uses for them too...never thought about cutting them in half!

  4. Very nice job! I love to see how others think outside the box and make something wonderful out of something that's been cast off and discarded. I never would have thought to do that!
