I don’t know about your favorite thrift store, buy mine is LOADED with wooden bowls and canisters and stuff. Honestly, I don’t spend much time in that aisle. After seeing Amy’s wooden bowl makeover I just might be making a beeline for that particular aisle on my next visit. Some inexpensive gold leaf, glue, Martha’s patterning tape, and a soft-bristle brush is all you need. And, not surprising, I happen to have all of that on hand. Now it’s just a matter of finding a wooden bowl. (Off to Goodwill.) For the entire tutorial, make your own beeline to Delineate Your Dwelling.
P.S. My experience with gold leaf would prompt me to either use the bowl as an art object and not to put anything in it. If I did want to use the bowl as intended, I’d spray it with a good sealer. Also, I would use the modified bowl to hold non-food items only. But that’s me….
