I looooove pedestal bowls. They're perfect for just about anything. You can use them in vignettes. They look great in an entryway, being used as a catchall for change, jewelry, keys or phone. If they're big enough, they're great as a fruit bowl.
In my year of thrifting and makeovers, I've only found two of them.
After the whole cheese dome cloche fad that Allison from House of Hepworths started last year, (I'm still on that bandwagon, by the way) I figured it wouldn't be too far of a stretch to make a pedestal bowl out of separate parts. So I began thrifting wooden bowls to go along with my thrifted candlesticks. I've found that nice teak salad bowls work great for this. The thicker the bowl, the better. I will say that since I sell my finished products, I don't use glue (not even Gorilla) to hold things together anymore. I get Charles two screw everything together so it won't fall apart during shipping. If you are doing this project as something you intend to keep, by all means, you can use glue.
Oh yeah, don't forget to head on over and enter my 600 followers GIVEAWAY! You could win these!
