Thrifted Brass Bowl Styled Five Ways

When Kendra of asked me to be a part of a thrift store item themed blog hop that she was hosting, I was flattered first off, but then fear set in.  Most of these hops consist of extremely crafty and talented ladies who have the ability to transform an unwanted and discarded thrift item into something new and amazing.  You’ll see that the ladies in the links below have done just that.  I just don’t know that I’m that much of a visionary honestly, but when Kendra suggested that I style a thrifted item I was on board with the idea immediately!

Thrifted Brass Bowl Styled Five Ways

It was only a couple of weeks ago that I happened upon this cute little brass bowl during one of my Salvation Army trips.  Some of you might know this already, but I love anything and everything brass, so I scooped it up and put it in my basket before it was snatched up by any other brass loving crazy ladies such as myself.  I ended up bringing it home and letting it sit in a pile amongst a few other items I purchased that day.  It wasn’t until today that I had the idea to try and style it in five different ways around the house.  I was surprised to find that it is quite the versatile pieces! Here’s what I came up with!

I love neutrals as much as the next person.  Actually, maybe a bit more, but I always need a pop of color in my design.  Pop a colorful flower into the bowl and enjoy!

    Hi Iris! I have a bowl exactly like this that my mother-in-law gave me, it was from her home in Korea when she was a girl. I’ve never seen another one like it. I love how you styled yours! I have mine on my desk too, with paper clips and stuff. Maybe I’ll start moving it around! Thanks for sharing!
