It’s exciting that Spring is officially here..if only the weather would be too! Last week’s weather was a teaser, some beautiful days and of course today is dreary and cold and snow is predicted for tomorrow. But the hope of spring’s eternal inspired me to make a frugal craft and decorate our Spring foyer.
This is how our Spring Foyer looked in 2012
It had just been painted light yellow from a dark merlot that was on the walls for over 15 years. Since I mainly decorate with thrift store finds I obviously didn’t have to many to decorate with. Kinda plain…the pails were found at Marshall’s for $3 each.
The pails are used to keep the area neat, we keep keys, receipts, gloves and so many other items inside. My goal was to Spring them up a bit without committing to a permanent change.
I was at the Dollar Tree (love this place) store and found this very pretty gift tissue paper…
When I pulled the pails down I wasn’t really sure how I would use the tissue, stuff them or something else?
Recently found two bags of ribbons at the thrift store..
You might not have any pails to decorate but if you have any terracotta pots?
The buckets became the inspiration for my Spring Foyer
The coat rack is a few years old and from a thrift store. This piece has really filled our needs in our small foyer. It gives me a place to decorate, hang coats, purses and keys. The closet behind the door is teeny tiny and you can barely get 5 coats in there.
On top I place tulips (fake) inside a white canister. You can always find canisters at thrift store which make inexpensive flower containers. Mr. C drills holes in the bottom for drainage. In front is a vintage lamb planter and I’m in love with it’s anthropomorphic face.
Another leaded glass panel was placed in back to add a vintage element…
