These are just splendid. I have recently been hunting for a large wooden bowl to make into a yarn bowl and now on top of that I can add a little flair to the project by painting a unique design on the inside and outside of the bowl. This is a fantastic idea.

I see these wooden items in the thrift store all of the time and never think to purchase them. This is a grand idea. Take something that may not be so attractive and make it unique and a display piece. I can't wait to pick up a few of these items now and make some beautiful show pieces.

These are super cute and trendy!

Wow, what an easy way to upcycle some simple bowls.

These are definitely one of my favorite projects on the site. I love how you can customize the colors to fit with the rest of your kitchen decor!

These are super cute! I like the bright neon contrasting with the dark wood grain. Super chic.
