Updating a Wooden Bowl

This is not the way this bowl started.

Recently I found an old wooden bowl.  Loved the shape but its dated color…brown… and its white marks made it, well, ugly, See…

So I pulled out my spray paint.  It felt so good to paint again.  I have been so busy with life and my business that I kept putting projects like this on the bottom of my list.

I sanded it down, covered the bottom with a piece of paper because I wanted to leave the bottom brown.

I just traced the bottom on paper, cut it out, and adhered it with removable tape.

I primed it, then I used an Heirloom White.  After it was dry I distressed it,  and I sealed it with a clear spray.

It looks more white than it really is.  Originally I redid it with the intent to resell it. Now I think I might have to use it for a centerpiece bowl for a while.

I think it would look lovely with a set of old Christmas bulbs in it.  Oh, no, I am not ready for Christmas  How about a bowl of acorns?  Yep, that would look nice too, but not ready for fall either.

Awe, that is much better.  Feels more like a back to school bowl.

Have you updated a vintage find lately?
