I just about *died* when I saw Jen’s spring spoon flower wreath on Tatertots and Jello last Wednesday! So much so that I got in my car that day (I had to go shopping anyways…), stopped at Goodwill (well, it was right across the street…), and bought myself some spoons (no excuse there)! Turns out they didn’t have as many as I wanted so I picked up a few forks as well since I wanted. it. NOW.
I’m not much of a wreath gal, but I had other plans for the little beauty!
I followed Jen’s tutorial and instead of attaching to a wreath, wrapped a little picture hanging wire around the back.
I’m so happy with how it turned out!
I also bought the small pin in the center while I was there for .99 and cut some cardstock I received from freecycle to add that pop of blue color. The spoons and forks were .10 a piece, $1.20 total, so $2.19 for the whole flower!
After taking the pics and living with it a bit, the gold doesn’t really fit so I painted it black to match the ORB accents in the room. I also painted the lighter flower a more turquoise shade, to better match the accents in the room.
Much better! It’s a little funky and less traditional than most of what I have in my house, but it is sooo me and I think it adds just the right touch to the space! I think it looks great next to the simple white plates…
and my cream hutch!
with the door open…
To refresh the room, we also moved the corner cabinet to the other side of the window, I love how it looks here!
See my ORB’d old vent covers (original to the 1937 house). Pay no attention to my chandy that needs swagging…
Not too long from now, this table will be painted and distressed as well! YAY!
like my plant stand and peonies? I refreshed the old arrangement and moved them into the spot where the corner cabinet used to be. The stand was $5, the peonies (Crate & Barrel!) were $4, the chandelier was $5, shades were 8 for $2, and the table my hubby bought before we dated – all garage sale!
I love using fruit as a centerpiece – yummy Gala apples and bananas (Lily’s fave). Placemat was a gift from my mom (Home Goods) and the wire basket was from my registry from Macy’s (Martha’s collection).
HOPEFULLY the other colorful accent in the room, turquoise curtains (tableclothes bought for $2 each at a TAG outlet sale), will get hung tonight or tomorrow, depending on when I get my hubby to hang them! ;)
Here’s my inspiration picture – thanks Jen for such a great idea and an easy to follow tutorial – go check it out here!
