I’ve got a fun DIY Stoneware Bowl to share for this month’s thrift store makeover. I love the look of stoneware, but it can be pricing and I never come across pieces at our thrift stores. So a couple of months ago Kristin at My Uncommon Slice of Suburbia shared how she created stoneware with a glass vase she found at the thrift store.
So here’s the glass bowl I scooped up for only $1!!! I loved the shape and thought it would be perfect on the new chunky wood shelf I just built.
How to Make Faux Stoneware
First step was picking out my paint. I used a sample gray paint that I had on hand. I thought it would go good with the colors in my family room.
Then I grabbed baking soda. After reading Kristin’s post I decided I wanted to do about a 50/50 ratio of paint and baking soda.
I used a disposable cup and mixed it together well with a wooden skewer, for easy cleanup.
Use a cheap, chippy brush to apply the mixture. I gave it a nice, thin, even coat for the first coat.
Then I let it dry for about an hour before I gave it a second coat.
After letting it dry overnight I had this beautiful DIY Stoneware Bowl!!!
I added some greenery and it found a home on my new shelf.
Now here are the projects from the team, you can check out everyone’s makeovers in the link below.
