Antique Dough Bowl Turned Coffee Table


Growing up, my parents had an antique dough bowl that was hand-carved and used by my great, great, grandmother. I always loved it's unique quality and imperfections. I've long wanted one for myself and when I came across this large one at an antique yard, I couldn't resist! Once I got it home, I realized it was so large I wasn't sure what to do with it! So, I turned it into a coffee table!

We started with the old bowl and then added some vintage iron mid-century hairpin legs found on eBay.

We cut some plexi-glass for the top and we were ready to go! We left the plexi-glass unattached in case we wanted to use the bowl at some point to display something.

I absolutely love how it turned out!

It was a super-easy project, but it packs a lot of rustic style!

    I noted that the plexiglass can break into sharp pieces. Can plexiglass be sanded to smooth out edges?

    I have a huge antique dough bowl like you pictured. This will be perfect. How and where did you obtain the legs

      I'd add artificial plants or flowers under the glass top.

    I have one of those. I love what you did. Where did you buy the legs and about how much did it cost?

    It turned out absolutely beautiful! I love wooden bowls, utensils, plates, cups and anything wooden or stone. It has an earthy beauty.
