This week has been one of those fun weeks where I’m finishing small projects around the house, decorating for Spring and finalizing plans for my office makeover next month. Oh my word, you guys, it’s crazy town in there! I can’t wait to see how it all comes together.
Since I’ve been working on the River Ranch project and had a bit of delay in finishing the laundry room makeover I had to put adding Spring touches around the house on hold until this week. But with Easter in just a few days, I want to make sure I’m enjoying every bit of Spring I can possibly enjoy.
One easy way to create a Spring look in your dining room without spending a lot extra money on flower arrangements is to head to your local plant nursery or home improvement store for flowers, plants or herbs. We recently picked up these lavender plants and they smell so good. They’re kind of wild and whimsical (like my hair ha ha) and make for a “showy” display on the table.
These are in 2.5 quart containers that I wrapped with napkins I picked up at the thrift store a few months ago for a few dollars. Raffia or jute is an inexpensive way to help secure the material in place.
This a great time of year to find chargers with texture too. They add a fun layer to any tablescape and can be used throughout Spring and Summer seasons. Do you guys remember the store Pic N Save? I bought these dishes for my first apartment there.
I bought this nubby fabric while out shopping with my mom recently. It’s a really pretty gray and totally neutral for a table runner. Looking for fabric remnants like this one can be an inexpensive option for Spring pillows, napkins and table linens too.
Since I’m always bringing new items to sell at The Pickers Market, I shopped the house to change out the display on the hutch and buffet. You can find vintage aqua Ball jars and pieces of ironstone at local antique malls. I picked up these herb prints at a local charity shop a few months ago and have been waiting for Spring to use them.
I picked up the scale while working on the River Ranch project. There was a lot of shopping going on last week and staying focused was so hard sometimes!
I hope you guys all have a safe and happy holiday weekend. I know it will be an exciting time filled with traveling and sweet moments among family and friends. We’ll be on vacation so I’ll see you next week to show you how to make a vintage inspired bulb crate, tips on growing an indoor herb garden, how to make bread in a flower pot and we’ll say goodbye March, hello to April.
Many blessings for the happiest of Easter weekends,
