Kristine used Antique Gold, Rockwood Red and Sable Brown Americana paints on these bowl makeovers. She then distressed the bowls by sanding the edges, bottoms and insides of the bowls. She finished them off with a Minwax Dark Walnut stain.

Kristine purchased this ugly bowl for $ 5.00. She saw something in it that others did not. She knew that she could turn it into a beautiful piece that would fit in perfectly with her other bowls....and she was right!
