Gold Polka-Dot Jewelry Bowl

Guys, I'm finally a proud owner of a gold Sharpie pen.

I know what you're thinking, "Really Selene, really? A Sharpie pen?"

I know. I was disappointed in myself too.

I may or may not have attacked several items around my house with that gold Sharpie pen since purchasing it last December.

One of the victims: this jewelry bowl that had already been attacked with white spray paint.


Pretty, huh?

Who doesn't love gold polka dots? Or polka dot anything?

I'm quite the sucker for them. Have you seen my Necklace & Bracelet Organizer

The process was super easy and thrifty- just like all my DIY's!

I grabbed some of these hole reinforcements at Target since I had seeing another blogger use them in a similar project.

I cannot for the life of me remember who!! Please, if it's you let me know so I can give the proper credit.

Anyway, these were under $2 and my gold Sharpie pen came in a pack of 3 for under $5.



I got home and went to work- wait, does this even count as work?

I placed a bunch of hole reinforcements all over my jewelry bowl and colored inside of them. That's it.

Well, other than peeling them off afterward.

Now let the bowl strut and do her thing;



I use the edge of the bowl to hang my dangly earrings and it works perfectly!






I just love quick and easy updates like these that make such a difference, don't you?

Do you all love polka dots and Sharpie pens as much as I do?

This is great, Selene! You did a wonderful job...there's no way I could have spaced the dots so evenly. :) I love little bits of gold around the house. Have a nice weekend!

Looks good! I'm loving gold and white. So fresh. I want the oil based Sharpie pens! I made a polka dot bowl a couple of weeks ago, and used a pencil eraser dipped in gold paint! You idea is much easier! Julia
