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.
