DIY White and Gold Painted Bowl

I had a natural wood serving dish that, at one point, I used for it's original purpose - 
to serve bread, crackers and cheese, or olives.

I get bored. So, I painted it dark brown, and used it as a centerpiece with tea lights.


And then I added some pine cones.


Today I needed a little something to do, so I painted it white,


and gold, and added a flower.

Now I'm going to use it to hold my jewelry at night. 


So tell me! Do you get bored and change things over and over again?

Very nice Julia!! I love changing things up! Better to bring new life to something then to buy something new :)

Thank you Dana - I saw on pinterest that someone painted a salad bowl! I wouldn't eat out of it after I painted it, but it would be cool for decorations!

Denise - thanks! I hate throwing things away, so thus the paint! :)

I absolutely love how you repurposed that bowl. Awesome idea! You've inspired me to find something to "remix" around my house. Good stuff!

Julie said...

It turned out great! I need to make something like this for our entry table where my husband tosses his keys; right now, it just looks like a mess. :)
