Plain turquoise bowl gets a face lift

Last week, I attended my first blog conference in Salt Lake City, Utah.  I've been wanting to go to SNAP for years and I finally signed up and made the time to go and I am so glad that I did!

The part of SNAP that I was most looking forward to was connecting with other bloggers. For months leading up to the event, we were getting updates, connecting on our social media accounts and even being paired with secret sisters.  

My secret sister was Mandy from Sugar Bee Crafts. I was excited and a little nervous since I've read Mandy's blog for years.  She's one of those amazing bloggers that I admire and have on my every day reading list.  When I found out that she liked turquoise, I started to see turquoise every where.  I ended up making a little something for her and I love how it turned out and wanted to share it with you too.

I found this .99 cent turquoise bowl at Target and thought it needed a little punch.  It was the right price to put my own stamp on it.

I used tape to tape off the top rim and used my favorite deco art gold paint. {I also used it for this project}

I simply added a few coats of the gold paint until it had the desired effect that I was going for.  I liked still being able to see the brush strokes.  I also added a coat of mod podge and gold glitter around the rim because what's not to love about gold glitter?!

I hope Mandy loves it as much as I do!

You can find these .99 cent dishes in the household section by the dishes.  These are intended as dip bowls.  I think they make a way better jewelry dish don't you?

That is really cool. Turquoise seems to be the color of the season. The gold touch really added that little something.

This turned out great! I love the color combo, too.
I'm visiting from You're Gonna Love It Tuesday Link Party. I would be so honored if you would share this at Brag About It Link Party on VMG206 (Mondays at Midnight).
