Find a vintage wooden bowl at a thrift store and give it a quick DIY makeover for gorgeous and easy organization on a dime!
Hi friends, Today I have the easiest makeover for you! It’s easy to find and easy to update! Vintage wooden salad bowls are all over garage sales and thrift shops, typically super cheap. They are pretty outdated to use in the kitchen, but make THE BEST catch all trays with just a little effort. Scattered car keys and lip balm all over the counter are a pet peeve of mine. Everything needs a landing place and then clutter doesn’t look so stressful. Do you agree?
I found this old artichoke? acorn? (what do y’all think it is?) wooden bowl at a thrift store and knew it would be a perfect spot by the garage door for my husband to drop his stuff when he walks in the door and grab it on his way out!
I started by painting it all over with a fresh coat of white paint. Y’all this might be my new favorite paint. I have been busy painting the new house and my husband grabbed this paint for me and I LOVE what he bought. It’s Sherwin Williams but it’s their line at Lowe’s. It’s called HGTV Showcase by Sherwin Williams, it comes in a red label and this white is called pure white. It’s a sweet warm white.
This paint is the first paint I’ve used that is truly a one coat job. This is NOT a sponsored post, but probably should be, lol. I love this stuff!! Once it dries I painted the inside cups with Soft Gold from the Decoart Metallics line.
Easy peasy, now the hubs has a holding spot and I have peace. If it were just always this easy! Now get out there and create something today friend! Would you take a minute and share this idea before you go, you’d be my bestie for sure. 🙂 Also – here is another fun idea for those old wooden bowls you find!
