Makeover Monday

Makeover Monday: Boring Bowl to Cool Container!

Hello, my pretty little readers!

It’s time for another Makeover Monday, this time involving a wooden bowl. If you want other ideas for upgrading wooden bowls, check out my post 10 Things to Look For on Your Next Trip to Goodwill. Wooden bowls are the first item on the list!

The Original:

These bowls were gifted to my family by my aunt, but we never found a good use for them. I took to painting a few and gave them to my mom and sister; however, there were still quite a few left.

One day I decided to use Mod Podge (link is to glossy version) to glue some torn comic book pages to one of the bowls. I don’t have any in-progress pics, but you’ll still get to learn a little about how I took a plain wooden bowl and made an awesome piece of décor!

I first painted the rim of the bowl with black paint. I did this because I wanted to leave that part comic-free.

Next, I tore up the black-and-white pages of the comic and used Mod Podge to affix the pieces to the inside of the bowl. I allowed for some overlap, but I had fun trying to figure out which pieces would fit best where.

Here’s how the inside ended up looking:

For the outside, I tore up the colored comic book pages and glued them down.

Finally, I used Elmer’s glue to seal and provide a glossy finish. The Mod Podge I was using had a matte finish, which I didn’t like – the above link is for glossy finish, though.

Final Product:

I love how this turned out! I think it looks so cool.

Let me know what you think, and as always, connect and share on social media!

See you Thursday for another pretty little post!
