Thrifted Glass Bowl Makeover in Under 15 minutes just by using Glass Paints. This is a great way to freshen up dated bowls and give them a new purpose.
It is safe to say that we all have one of these Pressed Glass Bowls or Trinket Bowls in our home at one point in our lives.
I don’t even remember how I have this in my home since it is that old.
Growing up my Grandmother used to love collecting bowls like these and I have seen countless of them just spread all over my childhood home.

I don’t mind these bowl but I am not a big fan of them either as they don’t have the colors that I like to have in all my decor pieces.
These bowls can be found in the Dollar Store and online for super cheap if you decide to go ahead and recreate this project.
I happened to have this bowl on hand or you can even make a little trip to your local thrift store and update it with this fun little DIY Idea.

So my bowl had a lot of details from a leaf shape carved into it to flowers.
But honestly you really could not see any of that as it was all just one color. My idea was to enhance those features.
TUTORIAL FOR THRIFTED GLASS BOWL MAKEOVER
These were the colors I was going to use on my bowl. I chose gloss enamel paints which is perfect to be used on surfaces like glass.
I have used these paints on so many projects and you can check out my Abstract Painted Mugs for more inspiration.
Flip the bowl and place it downwards,
As always you can use as many or as little color you like, to be honest I am a color junkie so it was really hard for me to narrow it down to just a few.
This project is really straightforward and simple, there is a reason why I said it will be done in under 15 minutes.
So these glass paints I am using have the perfect tip which made it really easy to fill out designs.
Pick up any color glass paint and start filling all the little nooks/ designs.
Play around with the colors.
Make sure to apply a little pressure on the bottle and to start with a little paint as some can drip down if it is too watery.
You can always layer on the paint later on.
I went all around the bowl filling every place with different paint colors.
The base of the bowl I filled with green and blue paint.
And after some final touches this is what I ended up with.
What do you guys think.
Isn’t this such a neat little Idea to update a thrifted bowl.
It honestly looks so good now and I have been using it so much more now.
