Springtime Decor

Springtime is the time of year I love to freshen up the house with a good cleaning and a new look!

I've never really been in love with the mirror that backs my china hutch. Until I can change it, I decided this vintage white shutter would do the trick and give me more of the look I was after.

This  cute vintage piece was garage sale find. I already had a similar piece in the house that I left the wood alone, so I wanted to paint this one. The top was actually in really nice shape so I left it alone and opted just to paint the base. It makes a nice little cabinet for napkins and extra serving pieces.

I made another fitted table cloth from a fabric shower curtain I found at Goodwill. I just loved the grey and the pattern breaks it up just enough to be interesting.

This black iron cloche was the top of a vintage birdcage. I had it in my shop for a while, but no one bought it.  Sometimes things work out for the best because I just love it on my dining table. 

The bunnies were also earmarked for the shop, but never made it in there. They are vintage flocked bunny banks and remind me of my childhood. When I unwrapped them after my trip I fell in love with them all over again and decided they belonged on my table instead. They will probably stay there all the way until Fall.

(That really happens way more often than I would like to admit!!! ) LOL!

Adjacent to the dining room is my living room and this is where I eat my breakfast and drink my coffee in the mornings. It is the brightest room in the house during the day. I put my twine wrapped eggs in a wire basket  on the coffee table. If you want to see how I made them, you can find the tutorial here.

I know its already after Easter, but I will keep these on the table until Fall as well.

I hope you are all having a wonderful Spring where you are. The temps are already up into the 90's here so summer is not far away!!!!
