This wooden bowl is cute as it is for a rustic farmhouse look, but I want to update it. I gave it a coat of cheap flat white spray paint the just didn’t cover it well. Lesson learned! I had to paint it by hand 2 more coats of acrylic white paint to finally cover the checked print.
Once it was dry, I used ink chalk paint and the dry brush technique to spruce this baby up!
I wasn’t too concerned about covering the inside since I planned to fill it so the inside isn’t seen. Once dry it’s time to decorate it!
The best laid plans of mice and men…I had planned to make a shadow box filled with paper flowers, but when I removed the saying it scratched the plexiglass. I didn’t realize it was not glass until it was too late!
So I figured to just scrap it, but the more I thought about it, I didn’t want to admit defeat! My plan was now to cover the inside ‘glass’ with cardstock and paint the frame black.
Alright, now what?! I have these circles from Dollar Tree frames that I saved from past projects. Frame post I guess I’ll draw my inspiration from them create a cute, farmhouse sign. First I painted it with acrylic black paint then applied my design from Design Space.
Using the block of wood from the original circle frame, hot glue it in the center of the new frame.
Perfectly raised! Finally, I hot glued a scrap of nautical rope around the edge of the frame to cover the groove where the back went.
Well I love it so much, I’m keeping it! I give a lot of my projects to my friends and family, but this cutie is staying in my home!
I’ve had this tin box for a while, not sure if I bought it at a thrift store or if my good friend gave it to me. Either was, it’s time to update it! Certainly a coat acrylic white paint was a good start.
Using acrylic black paint, I dry brushed the entire box. It made the raised part on the front just pop!
For fall, I used lambs ear from Walmart, boxwood and pumpkin picks from Dollar Tree.
