Thrift Store Pistachio Nut Bowl

Quite often I get emails for special requests and this was one of those days.

It is the tenth of the month again and this month my friends and I are sharing our favorite 

under $10 thrift store transformations. 



Here is my project and at the end of this post you will find links to the other bloggers' projects!

A while back I wrote a post about a pistachio nut bowl that I made using repurposed bakeware.

A customer was looking for just such a bowl and contacted me to find out if I could make another one just like it. She wanted to give it as a Christmas gift. 

Most of the projects I make are one of a kind so they are hard to reproduce. This particular project is one I kept for myself and I use it all the time!

In hopes of finding just the right pieces I needed to create a similar bowl, I headed to the thrift store.

The stars must have aligned that day because I found 2 perfect bowls for this project. 

I love the vintage bakeware piece I found, it had a beautiful patina.  

The wooden bowl was beautiful too. I originally thought about painting it but the wood on the one I found was just too pretty to mess with.

The knob at the top was from my stash of hardware and was perfect with a little silver wax to make it match the bowl on the bottom. 


Just like the first pistachio bowl I made, the nuts go in the top bowl and the empty shells go underneath.

And now for the thrift store transformations from 
the rest of the 10 on the 10th friends...

Happy thrifting!

  1. Hi Susan! I love both of your nut bowls ~ they are perfect for somewhere to put the used shells. My husband loves chomping on pistachios and peanuts and normally uses a plastic bag, but that gets messy quickly. This would be a perfect (and cute!) alternative.

    Happy to be part of 10 on the 10th with you!!!

    Thanks for the idea,
    Hugs,
    Barb :)
