Creating lovely centerpieces is not part of my skill set. I'm just not good at it. I try, really I do, but usually my table is quite boring.
Last week I saw this lovely table. She got her inspiration from Pottery Barn and created it for much, much less.
My initial plan was to pretty much shamelessly copy her. I already had some white bunnies and a white pitcher, all I needed were the flowers and paper mache eggs. I found the flowers at Hobby Lobby, no luck with the eggs. Dang it! I remembered a blog post about painting plastic eggs, so I picked up a pack and painted my own.
I sprayed primer on first.
Then a couple coats of craft paint. I used an off white for the base coat adding a little blue and green to some for some variation.
Then I speckled them using watered down paint on a tooth brush.
They looked pretty good, but the seam where the egg comes apart was more noticeable than I wanted. I decided not to hang them, instead I placed them in a little moss nest.
Instead of the white pitcher, I used my granny's old watering can.
I guess it's a knock off of a knock off.
Thanks for the inspiration Roeshel and Pottery Barn.
