Fall Dollar Store Bowl Makeover

Hi friends! I’ve got a quick little Fall project to share with you today.
But before you read on, be sure to check out the little giveaway I’m doing. Win some yummy Jif Peanut Butter Bars! There haven’t been a ton of entries, so you’ve got good odds! Giveaway ends tomorrow!
I found this plastic bowl at Dollar Tree last week:

It is such a cute shape, but the plastic looks super cheap. I decided that for a buck, I would take it home and see if I could make it look a little more upscale.

So I busted out the spray paint–Rustoleum in flat white–to be exact. I did several thin coats (that’s always the key to a good spray job).

When the paint was completely dry, I lightly sanded all the edges. Now it totally looks like a ceramic piece.

You would never guess it was a cheap dollar store bowl now, would you?!

I wouldn’t recommend using it to hold food since spray paint is probably not food safe. But if this bowl were filled with candy corn or M&M’s I might risk it. Ha!

Linking up HERE.


  1. You INSPIRE me!! I have this exact piece–purchased last year. When I got it home, it DID look cheaper than in the store. So, I put it away, waiting for inspiration!!! THANKS JENNIFER!!
