I absolutely love to thrift shop just as much as I love going clothes shopping! There is just so much inspiration in a store full of random things. I noticed in magazines that wicker furniture,wicker decor and natural fibers were incorporated in a lot of home decor. So when I went to the thrift store one day having that on my mind, I went into the isle of baskets and found these picnic plate holders and bowls! I only paid $1 for a stack of those plate holders and and the most expensive bowl I bought was 75 cents and most were 50 cents and under. I already had the spray paint so this project was under $5!! I knew right where I was gonna put those plate holders! Finally that spot above my couch would be filled. Empty wall space has always bugged me! I also felt like my dinning room needed another color besides the standard red and white I had going on. I was quite pleased how the natural colored bowls found its place in there! Who says you can afford to decorate!! Now imagine what these would look like in a kids bedroom spray painted in fun colors! A cluster of these bowls would look really cute on walls!
Aren't these awesome?! You can find a ton of these easily.

My dinning room
Super simple to spray paint however you are gonna want to let dry and put several
coats of paint on. These tend to soak up a lot of paint.
Well if you aren't inspired to use them as home decor they make great cheap toys! My son played with them for hours. He loved spinning the plates as if they were records!
