Fall Double Decker Thrift Shop Wooden Fruit Bowl Decor

August 31, 2017

 Do you remember these wooden fruit bowls of yesteryear?  I find them from time to time when thrifting.

 My project's first step was to paint both bowls.

 I gave them both two coats of Rust-Oleum Chalked Paint in Linen White .

Next, I lightly faux distressed both bowls with my FolkArt Layering Wood Block and Ceramcoat Acrylic Paint in Walnut.  (more info on the layering block here)  I sealed them with water based Varathane Clear Matte  Poly.

So here are my pedestal bowls on the table on my covered patio.

A little faux pumpkin from MeraVic (purchased this year at a local gift shop) fits perfectly in the square bowl.

AND the smaller square pedestal bowl fit perfectly inside the larger bowl!

These four floral picks are from Kruenpeeper Gifts.

When I bent the stems in half, I was able to lay the four picks in and around the top pedestal base.  These fit perfectly too!

So here's the easy double-decker fall display with two upcycled thrift shop finds and some faux fall items.  
I have had the Kruenpeeper Maple and Berries picks for many fall seasons.  They are one of my favorites.

  1. Gorgeous! Is your patio covered ? Will the wood of the items rot ? Hope not, it looks fab!

  2. Loved the way the painted footed wooden bowls mix so well with the fall accents. Pinned.

  3. I just love this! I have been trying to find some thrift store items do something like this.

  4. I wasn't even going to open this email, because I thought those bowls were really ugly, but I did. Wow, you never cease to amaze me. These turned out adorable.

  5. Love the design of it! Great work!

  6. I do remember those but in your style I like them better.

  7. Hi there! I'm at work surfing around your blog from my new
