Time and money for decorating has been drastically cut for me. Yet, as soon as March 1 hit, I knew it was time to change out the winter and Christmas decor (yes, I still has a few Christmas decorations up in a couple of rooms), and bring on the spring!
Problem is, I don’t have a lot of spring decor. So I went around the house, searching for inspiration. I found a few white pitchers, some artificial hydrangea and some canning jars and set to work.
I also found this:
Now, I’m not real big on decorating with old things just for the sake of decorating. I love it when others do, but it’s just never worked for me. But this has history. It was my grandparent’s ladder. Not sure how old it is, but I can just imagine the stories in those paint splatters.
I brought it in the house because I’ve always seen these little ladders used as display pieces and I wanted to give it a shot.
What do you think?
I used the canning jars, pitcher and hydrangeas that I found and also my cute little cherub (it’s actually a sprinkler!).
I absolutely love how it looks in my living room. My children however, will probably make sure that it doesn’t stay there for long.
I also finished started decorating my mantle. I’m not thrilled with it, but I did only use what I had, and remember I said I don’t have much spring decor? I opted to bring in only spring green as my accent color, and I love it.
I’ve decided on the pillows I want, and will be ordering them later this week. I’ll share as soon as they arrive.
I found some Easter decor as well, but I’m waiting a few weeks before putting that up. There will be a cute little project that my grandmother made years ago that I think you will like, so stick around!
