There have been tons and tons of Easter egg decorating ideas all over Pinterest these past few weeks.
While I love a good decorated egg, I did not need any decorated eggs.
I need knobs.
I have a dresser in the entry way that has been needing new knobs for about 6 months. I went to all the hardware stores, Hobby Lobby, World Market etc, but nothing really jumped out at me. I wanted something inexpensive that if I decided to change would not create a huge place of guilt in me for paying a a ton of dinero. So one day I was walking through Walmart and found plain round wood knobs that I could paint.
Those colors make my heart sing. My dresser is a mint green, so I thought these would be perfect. At first I was going to go with black and white, but since that was my color choice for the dining room I went with these above.
Once the color was on, I decided to add a pattern. I first tried a star, but it was not clean enough so I went with my second favorite thing to doodle….stripes.
I just used some white indoor latex for the stripes. While I could have used tape to give it clean lines, I was not in the mood for this project to take all day so I just painted the stripes right on. I am a rebel.
Not too bad for something that only took me about 20-30 minutes to do.
Of course, I had an assistant.
Once she saw the paints come out, it was on.
Speaking of eggs, we get eggs from Mr. Kells dad who has chickens. They are too cool looking for me to color.
