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 🙂
