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?
