Where has the time gone? I can't believe it's Wednesday. I haven't posted since Sunday! My friend, Betty, just emailed me this message, "Today is Wednesday. It's time to change your blog. Love you anyway, Betty." How's that for motivation (or pressure)??? Okay, okay, Mrs. Betty, I'm changing it! :)
Today, I don't really have that much to share, but I thought I'd show you something that I experimented with and thought it turned out okay. It suits me fine, anyway.
I bought a couple of these bowls at Goodwill. You know the kind of thin salad type bowls? I don't know what they're made of or called.
Anyway, I think I paid .59 for them. One was the larger bowl and one was a regular salad serving size bowl. I figured for that price, I might could make it look like a regular prim wooden bowl. So I set out to work on it.
Here's the larger one when I finished. I used what I had here again. I used the paint we had used on Joy's creamy white desk with a few drops of Americana paint in Antique Gold. After a couple of coats of this, I antiqued it with my trusty antique glaze. I really do like the way it turned out. I painted the smaller one black (but didn't get a picture of it).
I already have it in use somewhere in my kitchen, but since I told you I'm tweaking in the kitchen, that will wait for another post. Since my little gathering is not complete just yet, I will wait and share it when it's all put together.
Thanks for peeking at my little Goodwill experiment today! To see what everyone's up to today, check out Leslie's Watcha Workin' on Wednesday.
I hope you all have a great Wednesday!
