Spring Shabby chic makeover for the Entry room

Oh Spring, Spring be here...At least it came in my Entry room.

The Entry at Christmas.

Now for spring.

This mirror was a wood framed mirror dresser i got from the Thrift store.
I painted it white. Easy and Chic result !

On the left are 2 cloches. Those white shoes are my Bridal shoes.
I love those little Pansy beauties and can't wait to plant them.
A gardenia silk flower plant.

In the middle, a little Bunny reminding us of Easter.
I changed his bow for a white one.
Toile vase with branches (The one's from the Christmas tree card)

On the left, A white church, Nest in a Urn. 
3 Artificial paperwhite plants and a Butterfly jar.

It is from Kmart and it is fake. The butterfly really moves like and sounds on the jar like a real one. 

Chrystal ornaments and  Family tree.
Made with the last family pictures.

Hope you are enjoying your week-end !

I love the shoes in the cloche. To bad my shoes got absolutely ruined on my day. It would have been a lovely showoff this year since it is our 10th anniversary this year. Any idea what I can do with the stockings I wore that day? Still got them laying around.

Unknown said...

Stockings are a hard one ! I will keep on thinking about it.

I love those butterfly in a jar things. A few months ago, my Great Aunt was trying to describe them to be, but I wasn't picturing how they would work. Then last week, I saw them in stores twice. Whoever came up with that idea is quite clever.

Your spring vignette is wonderful. All the elements are pretty on their own, but they come together beautifually. I really like the church and the birdhouses on the branches.

I love your springy tree and the mossy bunny. I've always wanted to make an Easter tree and have never done it. You are inspiring me.
