While at a thrift store shopping for some Easter books for my boys, I found this wooden finial shaped like an egg. It was only .80 cents....great deal for a cheap project! Here's it's makeover.
Thanks to Valspar and their FREE sample giveaway, I had a nice blue paint. Perfect to make it look like a Robin's Egg. First, I gave it two coats of the light blue paint. *Valspar Fountain Mist is the color I just love this color! I think everyone knows how to give it the brown speckles. Just fill your brush with some brown paint(any will do) and pull the brush back with your finger and slowly release the brushes towards the egg. Then let dry! Now, where to put it? I tried several different spots. Up on a shelf with my Carrot Topiary? Outside next to some blooming Primroses? Or on a stack of some of my favorite magazines? What do you think? I think it could go anywhere and look cute.
