Transforming these boring wood, salad bowls into whimsical toadstools is pretty easy. The first thing I do is paint the bowls some fun colors. This time, I chose some spring colors (last time, I chose more primary colors).
After two coats of paint, it is time to add the “spots” to the toadstools. To do this, I use a circle foam “pouncer” and some white paint. If you don’t have a foam pouncer, you could use a wine cork or just free hand some “spots” on the bowls.
I think these toadstools really start to come to life after I add the “spots”. Hello, spring colors!!
