Beachy Bowl



Hey Everyone,

I'm back with some fun projects to share and tomorrow I will tell you all my exciting news....I cant wait!

Sometimes (just a few times) you do a makeover only to discover that you liked how the item was before you made it over! Sigh..... Too late, but this little wooden bowl turned out okay in the end....

I had this lighthouse themed bowl for years and years and a while back I decided it needed to be turquoise ...


I peeled the pics off, sanded the bowl and painted it and this is how it looked for months until I decided what I wanted to do with it....boring huh?



Until I discovered these foam stickers and for some reason thought that if I painted the bowl and when I removed the stickers it would be fab-u-lous!!!!!!


Look what happened when I lifted the corner of the sticker..... Really - I should have realised with foam that some seepage would occur!


I carried on and sanded the bowl smooth and in some parts back to the turquoise

 

I'm getting used to it on the desk and it hasn't collected any junk in it yet. I think Sean is waiting for me to "complete" it, ha ha...
 
I still like the original though - but a change is good ...right?
