DIY Wooden Pedestal Bowls

2 Materials
1 Hour

Today I'm making an easy repurposed project repurposing a basket full of legs from my daughter's old bedroom furniture.

These are the perfect "legs" that are great for so many projects!

On a recent trip to the thrift store I also purchased some inexpensive wooden bowls.

Read more to see how great they look now!

First, I removed the double sided screw from the furniture legs I had.

See the bottom of this post for furniture leg suggestions.

There was no need to paint these legs because they were already white and looked great... but you could!

I used wood glue and E6000 glue to attach the wooden bowls to the pedestal legs.

I put a heavy weight on top to hold the glue until it dried.

Unfortunately, the glue didn't work to hold the bowl on top. I ended up drilling a hole through the bottom of the bowl and into the leg.

I used a wooden peg through the bowl and into the leg for support.

I stained the top of the peg to match the bottom of the bowl so the peg wouldn't be too noticeable.

These cute bowls are perfect to hold a nest, eggs, or whatever you want to display for Spring.


The furniture leg pedestal give the bowls more of a presence and contrasts the beauty of the wood.

I made similar a while back with wooden dishes and lamp parts I found.

    Love that look but never seem to find free or inexpensive furniture legs. Seems like people caught on and charge crazy prices now. So for now I’ll admire yours lol
