and found this delightful little rolling pin, and.......a wooden treasure box, the kind which needs stained. My son wanted a treasure box for his trinkets...it will go in his Easter basket.
I wanted the eggs because I wanted to paint them to look like real eggs, the brown ones are my favorite, they come in all shades some have freckles, have you looked at your eggs? They are gorgeous....a simple joy for me..hey..they come in all shapes and sizes. So anyway...I take steel wool, and just rough them up a bit so the paint sticks, I sprayed them with a white primer, and then got out my acryllics and had a ball painting them...oh such joy..such fun. White, tan, brown, lovely. These are going to go in the basket I got for 50%
off. Charming, simple charming..
|I need to put some speckles on them...and write something on the chalkboard..|
I have a Easter wreath I did the same thing, I will post that in a week or so.
