Create with paint! Projects by Habitat by Resene

Old wooden bowls are perfect for storing your jewellery on the vanity, like this one painted in Resene Wax Flower. 

Paint a wooden jewellery bowl

You will need

  • Resene testpot in your choice of colour; Nikki used Resene Wax Flower
  • Resene testpot brush
  • Bowl
  • Sandpaper (optional)

Supplies you will need

Step 1

Step 2


  1. Clean your bowl inside and out and leave it to dry.
  2. Paint your bowl inside and out using your chosen Resene colour.
  3. Once dry, lightly sand the exterior of the bowl to bring out the interesting carved pattern.

Top tip: Use a combination of two Resene colours – one for the inside of the bowl and one for the outside of the bowl and rim. Or use a contrasting Resene testpot colour to pick out key details in the design.
