Hand Painted Wooden Bowl Knockoff

After I painted this set of bowls the other day, I couldn’t help myself when I found this wooden bowl at the Salvation Army.  I loved the shape of it so much that I decided to take it home.  I decided to do a hand painted wooden bowl knockoff project on some bowls I had seen in the past.  This set of bowls is one of my inspirations as well as these fun and funky various dipped wooden household items.  

Here are a couple of before pictures… I love the sleek lines and sexy curves!

As with the bowls I painted last week, I used Martha Stewarts Multi Surface Acrylic Craft Paint.  I used this because it is good for wood, for indoor and outdoor use, and after the project cures (which is approximately 21 days), you can wash it in the dishwasher! I would recommend hand washing it prior to then.

I decided to hand paint it rather than dip it because I would use less paint.

I ended up painting three coats.

I also added a gold trim with a metallic gold color to glam it up a bit.

Here are a couple more pictures.  I love how a few simple coats of paint can make this old wooden bowl look more new and modern.  I tried to be fancy and take a photo of it in a mirror so you could see it better :)
