It is such a cute shape, but the plastic looks super cheap. They also had the same bowl in an acorn shape.
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 not food safe. But if this bowl were filled with candy corn or M&M’s I might risk it. Ha!
