Can You Decoupage A Wooden Bowl? Yep!

Solid wood bowls are the perfect backdrop for a one of a kind finish; how about pretty peonies over classic black with a touch of gold?

This unique square solid wood bowl was painted years ago in a soft white washed pale pink for a charity fundraiser. It was paired with a pretty candle for a one of a kind candleholder.

Seeing it was previously refinished I removed the wax finish with some odorless solvent then lightly sanded all sides. It was then scrubbed well with Dixie Belle white lightning cleaner from a a spray bottle and cloth then rinsed with clean water and dried.

The updated color was one of my favorite classic blacks called anchor from the  Dixie Belle Silk paint line. This paint has a built in primer and top making it a one step paint. For a deep rich matte black 2 coats were applied on all sides except the sides and bottom which were given 1 coat.

The sides were measured and the pretty new peony  Dixie Belle rice decoupage paper. I marked the measurements on the back of the paper and cut strips accordingly.

My choice of product to "stick" the paper to the paint is Dixie Belle flat clear coat applied with a Dixie Belle premium chip brush.

Brush on an even thin coat to the area where the paper is to adhere.

Place the paper in place and smooth in place.

Then apply another thin coat of Dixie Belle flat clear coat over the paper to seal.

To add a bit of shimmer I applied Dixie Belle Gilding Wax with my finger around the top and lower edges of the bowl.
