Instead of an Easter egg basket, how about and “Easter egg Chest”? The more I worked on this little display, the cuter it became. I don’t have any little ones running around here yet, but if I did I think they would surely enjoy peaking into my little secret box. I hope you enjoy it, too…Happy Easter~
Where to Find an Old Chest
I originally found this old beauty gift set type box at a thrift store a few years ago, and I made it over with paint, and few little dainty craft flowers. After I shared it here on this blog, it ended up in our kids’s bathroom and they used it for makeup storage. Well, if you saw the big bathroom makeover, you would know that it doesn’t really fit into that botanical theme. It was time to either trash it, sell it, or use it for something else.
So, at first I thought, Oh Julie, just throw it out. Then as I was on my way to the outside garbage I walked past a table I use to gather all the items I want to sell. I set it there, and figured someone would buy it at our garage sale one day. Then a few nights later inspiration struck! 🐰
Vintage Ceramic Easter eggs
My one and only brother, Bobby (deceased) created these beautiful hand painted ceramic Easter eggs with our cousins way back in 1975. I actually remember it even though I was only 5 years old. My favorite has always been the white one with the sparkly baby lamb on it. They are really in fantastic shape, and look like they were made yesterday. Hi, little baby lamb 👋 🐑…
After I nestled all 4 ceramic eggs in the chest with a little green florist type foam for them to rest on, I added the white grass I had on hand from last year. I recycle that stuff, do you?
Kids would Love this Easter egg Chest…
Then look who decided to finish off the little Easter Egg Chest…these 3 little bunny dudes I bought at Target years ago. They look like they are sitting on the stage, don’t they? Wouldn’t little kids love this? Heck, I love this 😆.Posted by
