Today I want to share something that is exactly what the title says. A quick fix decorating trick.
This is not a new project and I am definitely not the first one to do it. I don't remember where I saw this first time , but I noted it when I saw it at Little Green Notebook. This is a favourite one because this painted bowl has been with me for almost 2 years now but it looks the same then and now. Sometimes simple things that we make with cheapest stuff stays with us the longest.
I use this bowl as a planter for my succulents or faux ones when I kill them. But it could be anything really. It could do anything any bowl does and if you are patient enough it could look much prettier too, well except for any "food" related things.
I bought the bowl from Goodwill for a few cents I believe. Then I painted it with regular craft paint. To be specific, I poured out some paint into the bowl and spread it well and evenly with a brush. Once the paint was dry I gave it a coat of Mod Podge as a sealer. That was it.
For added color I put some decorative stones inside though.
I have directly planted my succulents which do not need a lot of water. If your plant takes a lot of water, it would be ideal to keep it in a planter and put it inside the bowl just to make sure that the paint doesn't bleed. I haven't had an issue till now though. Well other than killing my plants once or twice or thrice - But that is generally me. I have special knack of doing that. But trust me this one has been with me for a few weeks now and we are doing fine.
