I have teamed up with several blogger buddies for a April Thrift Store Challenge. Our rules were that we could purchase one to two items from one thrift store, to keep it as budget friendly as possible, then style in our homes. Challenge accepted! Actually, most items in my picture is from past thrift store purchases, estate sales, yard sales or on sale! I love a good bargain!
I decided to stop by one of our local thrift stores on my way home one day. I enjoy shopping at thrift stores because you never know what you will stumble upon! I went to the furniture section, in the back, looking for a couple of chairs or a antique chaise lounge that I could deconstruct. I have been wanting to deconstruct a couple pieces of furniture for our master bedroom. As I was thinking that I wasn’t going to find anything for my challenge today, I spotted it! The antique wood gable vent louver!! (I call it a gable and the hubs calls it a louver.) I already loved the color of the wood and I had an idea of where to style it in our home. I originally thought I would place this above our kitchen window but no cigar! It was to big! My next thought was to set it on top of our mantel. Eh! I wasn’t feeling it! I decided to set it on the bottom of the mantel and I started playing around with some lavender and terra cotta pots. I loved the look that I was beginning to achieve! I styled my tiered tray, added my diy chalk painted farmhouse books, our diy candlesticks and I loved how my spring chalkboard peeks out of the picture! Best of all, I only paid $1.99 for the gable vent!!
I hope that you will hop on over to each of my friend’s, as they show us, what they found on their thrift store challenge!
Hey y’all! Today I am joining a fabulous group of bloggers for a “Easter Tablescape Blog Hop” hosted by my friend Dori of This Full Life 5 . Are you ready for some Easter and Spring inspiration? This hop will bring you tons of Easter and Spring ideas!
I am so excited to be sharing my Easter tablescape with you today! I have only created a handful of tablescapes but I quickly realized that I really enjoyed creating different tablescapes, as it allows me to show my creative side!
For my Easter table, I wanted to incorporate why we celebrate Easter in our home by hand lettering Matthew 28:6 with my chalk pen. I decided to use a roll of natural colored craft paper from Hobby Lobby. You can use your Hobby Lobby coupon for 40% off and its less than $5.00. The paper has cut lines on the back side, so it makes it, easy cutting! I also wanted to use neutral colors and textures. I love using my rattan charges from Michaels, along with my white Pioneer Woman dishes. I found the last two sets of the white Pioneer Woman dishes from our local Wal-Mart for just $20! The pink glasses are also Pioneer Woman and the clear glasses are just mason jars in different sizes. I added eucalyptus with lavender along with lambs ear and mini hanging succulents to my dough bowl that my husband made for me.
I was able to create this entire tablescape with items we already have in our home. I paid under $50 for every item on this table! I love sharing ways to create a tablescape on a budget. After Easter, I can simply removed the table runner and keep the table set for Spring! Thanks for stopping by!
