DIY Wooden Pedestal Bowls

Today I'm making an easy repurposed project repurposing a basket full of legs from my daughter's old bedroom furniture. 

These are the perfect "legs" that are great for so many projects! 

On a recent trip to the thrift store I also purchased some inexpensive wooden bowls.

Read more to see how great they look now!

First, I removed the double sided screw from the furniture legs I had.

There was no need to paint these legs because they were already white and looked great... but you could!

I used wood glue and E6000 glue to attach the wooden bowls to the pedestal legs.

I put a heavy weight on top to hold the glue until it dried.

Unfortunately, the glue didn't work to hold the bowl on top. I ended up drilling a hole through the bottom of the bowl and into the leg. 

I used a wooden peg through the bowl and into the leg for support.

I stained the top of the peg to match the bottom of the bowl so the peg wouldn't be too noticeable.

These cute bowls are perfect to hold a nest, eggs, or whatever you want to display for Spring.

This fun pedestal dish used repurposed lamp parts. 

These farmhouse pedestal plates were made with wooden dishes and metal bases. 

How about a repurposed clearance candle holder turned into a pedestal dish?

This unique pedestal dish was made from a very unusual roadside find!

The furniture leg pedestal give the bowls more of a presence and contrasts the beauty of the wood. 

I made similar a while back with wooden dishes and lamp parts I found.
