Fancy Frugal Life: DIY Pedestal Cloche & Kid Easter Table

Saturday, April 2, 2011

DIY Pedestal Cloche & Kid Easter Table

My thrift-ing obsession continues (specifically candlesticks) along with painting things white!

Here is the latest. I found the pieces at my Goodwill for $4.99 total

After some spray paint and E600 glue we have a mini pedestal cloche. My inspiration for this was from Thrifty Decor Chic.

I put some Peeps in mine and placed on the kid table.

Today while buying these peeps my daughter kept calling them "Poops". lol

My son promptly corrected her and said, "No, those are called Peeps. The Easter bunny poops jelly beans." Seriously the kid knows it all at age 5.

The Pottery Barn Kids table was a gift from my father last year to the kids and we have dressed it up for each holiday. It really has been fun for the kids, ages 2 and 5 currently, to have their own table. They have the funniest conversations here as you can imagine. :)

I saw this cute carrot napkin idea at Charm Bracelet Diva. I didn't have pipe cleaners but used green curly ribbon for mine. The plates are from Target, and placemats are from Ikea, I think $1.99 each.

I wonder how long these Peeps will last when they wake up from naps and see?

LOVE your pedestal. I must get to goodwill this week and take a look! Your carrot silverware wrap is also just adorable. I love Easter!

Looks great. I just finished a cloche too. Great finds. Peeps are perfect for a kids table.

I laughed so much at what your little girl and boy had to say about the "peeps and poops". Being a retired first grade teacher, I can visualize the entire conversation....LOL ! That was so thoughtful of your dad to buy them their own table and chairs. I still have my little set from my childhood...my grown children used it, and then my four grandsons adored it.....it is now waiting for future great grandchildren. I wish your table set a long and happy life, too! The carrot napkins are so special....I will try and put that in my memory bank! Please, stop by a visit when you can .....hugs, Phyllis

Love it!! Just toooooo cute! I enjoy kiddo's convo's. They do say the darndest things. Write them down so when they get older you can recount what the kids say. That's what I do with the grands. My one grandson is 3 and is struggling with his "S" sounds...so every time he sees me now he tells me I'm "tilly" Love it!
I'm your newest follower...hope you'll stop over and visit me!
