Upcycled Pedestal Bowl in Duck's Egg

Now, before I get started, I want to make it clear that I know this bowl is very similar to the one I posted about last week.  I couldn't help it.  I loved how the first one looked with Duck's Egg color and I just had to use it again.  Actually, I did start this new bowl out with a similar color, but I just wasn't diggin' it.  So I painted over it in the Duck's Egg.  Based on the number of comments, features and Pinterest pins the first bowl got, I don't think many people would blame me.  Chuckle, chuckle, chuckle.

I'm lovin' this bowl because it was made from two thrifted pieces.  Specifically, these two pieces.

Here it is again, all gussied up.

I had Charles pop the candle holder off and then we attached it to the bowl by coring  holes in both pieces and then using some glue and a dowel to hold them together.

I've had this on my dining room table for the last week.  Those pears match my green and white checked tablecloth perfectly, and the bowl color pops against the two.  Like most of the pieces I'd love to keep around for awhile, this one sold rather quickly.  I've got some spare parts in my stash and some more Duck's Egg for another pedestal bowl.  Maybe I'll keep the next one.
