I thought it would be good to share some wooden bowl decor ideas with you guys because this is an item I see all the time in thrift stores and garage sales. You know the old wooden salad bowl or wooden serving dishes shaped like fruit and vegetables? I LOVE these old wooden bowls and there are lots of ways you can use them in your decor besides serving a leafy green salad! I hope these ideas give you some fresh eyes for the wooden bowls you probably have in your kitchen cabinets right now!
Today is even more fun though because I am bringing along a whole set of friends! My friend Julie from Redhead Can Decorate Blog hosts a Thrifty Style Team each month to share our thrifty finds and projects, she asked me to join the team and of course I said YES! I love all the ladies in this group, they are so creative and love the same things we do – so y’all will enjoy checking them out. You can get a full list of the teammates and their projects at the bottom, go check them out!
