Hi there! Today I am sharing an impromptu idea to up-cycle chipped dishes. You know the cute dishes you hate to throw out, but that chip drives you crazy. I found my favorite crock soup bowls HERE. I purchased four bowls in green, red and white and planned to mix and match the red and white for multiple holidays and seasons. When I went to buy more bowls in each color they were sold out. Ladies and guys trust your instincts and just buy an extra plate or bowl when you find “the one.”
And then the unthinkable happened… one of my green crock soup bowls chipped. My kids would interrupt me right now and say, “Hashtag suburban mom probs.”
I almost trashed this bowl-twice. I almost donated the chipped bowl twice, but then I pictured this cute little double handed bowl in a landfill. My cute crock pot bowl I had more to give. I just need to figure out how to up cycle it.
And then I found a new purpose for this bowl. I filled the chipped bowl with crushed gravel and potting soil and added those annoying grasses that creep into the mulch… and everywhere else. Here’s the chip on one side.
What have you thought about donating and changed it into an upcycle project?
