Painting, again!

A few weeks ago, I took off to the Goodwill store looking for that special something.

A bench.

But instead I came home with one of those wooden bowls that you see everywhere and super smart bloggers everywhere paint them and make them look awesome.

Unfortunately, I didn't take a before picture because I really didn't think it would be anything special, and I wanted to try the layering of the paint and if it didn't turn out right then it wouldn't matter anyway, right.

But I absolutely love how it turned out!!

Don't you just love her?

She looks dreamy, and now she sits by the door holding our keys.

I moved her so she could be seen in the light, in all her glory.

Linking up HERE and HERE!


  1. I found one of these about a month ago and did exactly the same thing. Looks so much better than it did in the original brown pine!!

  2. Great score. I love goodwill! Thanks for sharing at my newbie party.

  3. It looks fantastic!! I am a huge fan of pedestal anything especially Goodwill creations :0

  5. Your bowl looks great! Nothing like a fresh coat of paint to change the look of something.
    Thanks for visiting my blog.
