How to decorate your tabletop

Create with paint! Projects from Habitat by Resene

Add spice to your kitchen/dining room decor with these DIY table top delights. Nikki Astwood shows us how.

Decorate your table with colour dipped bowls
Colour dipped bowls

You will need


  1. Mask around the bowls, around halfway up.
  2. Paint the bases in Resene Alabaster. Leave to dry.
  3. Paint the bottoms in the various Resene testpot colours.
  4. Remove the masking tape and leave to dry.

Use for serving up condiments, nibbles and sides, for those occasions that call for a bit of colour. These bowls are not dishwasher safe so should be used for non-liquids and wiped clean afterwards.
