Yeah, that’s my pyrex bowl with a big ole hole in it. I was all excited to find this bowl at a yard sale for 50 cents a few weeks ago. I noticed that it had a crack in it but I didn’t worry about it too much. Afterall it was only 50 cents! I was just glad to have found a larger sturdy mixing bowl since mine had fallen out of my cabinet and shattered on the tile floor. Unfortunately, I should have been a little more careful with this “new” one. One day I pulled it out of the cabinet and found that the crack had turned into a hole!
Bummer, there goes my new bowl. Fortunately, I had a plan in mind. Instead of just throwing the bowl out I had some succulents that needed a new home. But this golden yellow tone wasn’t the look I wanted. So I pulled out the spray paint. First I went for silver but then I decided that I wanted to add a new metal to the mix. I decided I would go for copper. I added this onto top of the silver just leaving a hint of the silver behind around the top edge of the bowl. And here is my new planter.
While I’m sad I lost another mixing bowl I’m happy to have a new planter!! I think my succulents are happy too!
