Easter Basket In A Jar!

Welcome back to Ten on the 10th where a group of bloggers get together and share their ideas for under $10. Our theme this month is Easter and I'd like to thank Barb @ French Ethereal for hosting this month.  
If you're looking for an Easter Basket Alternative, I've got the perfect solution.
Easter Basket in a Jar This idea is perfect for your grown children, spouse, or as an Easter dinner/party favor.  Here's how to make one: Start with a recycled jar.  I used this one: The jar was washed, label removed, and the lid sprayed with gold paint.  A chocolate bunny, jelly beans, and Easter grass were purchased, and we were ready to go! A handful of grass was pushed into the jar. The chocolate bunny was place on the grass. Jelly beans were sprinkled around the bunny. The lid was screwed back on and the jar was finished! Then I decided to add some ribbon! There are many variations for this idea.  Chocolate eggs, Peeps, a gift card, or cash could be added to the jar.  It all depends on h…

Spring Nest

We are finally seeing some signs of Spring around here.  The temperature is rising and the snow is melting.  I didn't get any bulbs planted last Fall so I'm not seeing tulips popping through the mulch, but, there's always next year, right?

I decided we needed a little bit of Spring inside, so I grabbed a few things and created this:
I found these eggs at the Dollar Store last year.   I gave them a couple of coats of chalk paint that was leftover from a previous project. An old toothbrush and some brown craft paint was used to create the speckles: Once they were dry, I put some spanish moss in a bowl and arranged the eggs. Done!   The easiest project ever and it didn't cost me a cent. How's Spring coming along in your neck of the woods?

Dressing Table Makeover

Things are starting to get back to normal around here.  After a long bout with vertigo, followed by a virus, this gal is ready to get back to her projects.  I'm waaay behind, but I've been meaning to share this project for a while, so grab your favorite beverage and settle-in for this makeover.
Last August my husband asked me what I wanted to do for my birthday.  My answer?  Go to the ReStore!  We weren't in the door for 2 minutes when I spotted this dressing table - something I've always wanted!   Happy Birthday to Me.....everything was there:  the wheels, hardware, the mirror, and it wasn't in bad shape at all.  It came home with me and the makeover began.  The mirror didn't need any work at all, even the silver was good.   A bit of cleaning with Murphy's Oil Soap and it was done. I fell in love with the details:
The mirror took about 15 minutes to be done, so I set it aside and got to work on the rest.  
The top had some damage: In addition to scratches, there w…
