I found this frame from Dollar Tree in with my Two Thrifty Chicks stuff:
A little paint
And here you go!
I just painted the frame a dark green color and added the aqua to the accent pieces. It isn’t perfect (which is why I love it) and it adds a little pop o’ color to an otherwise drab transition piece on our table.
I just typed the word bloom on a word doc and printed it.
I wish I had cooler fonts on my computer but this is good enough for now.
Cost: one dollar.
Back in January while taking down Christmas, I was kind of ehh about my mantel in the family room:
It still felt like Christmas on my mantel. Except it was January, so I reasoned (in my head) that it was a “lodge” look.
Then in February, I was sick of the “lodge” look and took down/arranged/moved stuff as I do and this was the look I came up with (see above).
Cute enough and I did like it for a while but as the three feet of snow melts here and it nears March, well, I am sick of all things winter related.
So I did this:
…..and I LOVE it!!!
All I did was take down the garland and then I took my stars to the garage and painted them white and black. The two greenery pieces flanking the mantel were hidden on a shelf back in the laundry area.
Remember the cute little pots I found at DT back in January:
They now have a home on my new spring mantel:
