Simple Prim Eggs (Dollar Tree Find)
I made this coffee table display for Easter using mostly Dollar Tree finds. I am all about saving money when possible and these eggs came out cute I think! The Easter grass and Spanish moss are also from the dollar tree. The treenware bowl is an antique. The egg holder and chicks came from a local prim gift shop. The eggs are kids sidewalk chalk found in the easter basket filler section of dollar tree and were of course $ 1.00. I dinged them up with my finger nail first (butter knife would work too) then dipped them in black coffee. I then rolled them in wet coffee grinds and cinnamon-rubbed the grinds and cinnamon in a bit so it got into the dings and let them air dry. Perfectly prim I think!
Hello, I have loved and decorated in the primitive/farmhouse style for over 30 years. I love to shop for antiques and love garage sales and thrift shops. I like to try to repurpose things that I already have and live a pretty thrifty lifestyle. My husband and I live in a late 1800's farmhouse style home along with our 3 children and numerous cats and one dog in Massachusetts. We have lived in this house for a year and a half. We have been collecting antiques for many years. I am always thinking of new ideas for display of my beloved prim accents, and wanted to share them with others. I will also be talking about my prim style gardening when the seasons allow, family life, pets, cooking and whatever else comes to mind.
