CONFESSIONS-OF-A-PLATE-ADDICT-Pottery-Barn-Inspired-Spring-Wreath-Square_thumb20.jpg

As the name of her blog implies, Debbie from Confessions of a Plate Addict has a little love affair with plates. And… if you read KOD regularly, you know Debbie has made a pillow or two in her time. Well, let’s also add wreaths to Debbie’s list of obsessions! Debbie couldn’t resist creating her second spring wreath, a combination of twigs, pussy willow, and sparkly eggs, since she had almost all the needed materials on hand. Debbie’s newest wreath addition cost her only $7.50 compared to $79 for the PB version!

Marie, a KOD reader without a blog, wanted to create a display shelf on a wrought iron aquarium stand she purchase online. A bookcase from Ballard offered just the look Marie was after, and she sought out the help of her husband to revamp the aquarium stand by adding two plywood shelves. I’ll let Marie take it away with the details…

Framed Burlap Bunny Silhouette

I thought I would squeeze one more Easter decorating idea before the big day tomorrow. This adorable bunny art by Jessie from Dream and Differ is quick and easy, requires no fancy tools, and can easily adapted for other holidays. All Jessie did was trace an image printed from her computer onto the burlap and then paint it in. Even after Easter tomorrow, the bunny will be a cute addition to Jessie’s spring vignette!

What better way to dress up your table for Easter than with décor that looks good enough to eat… and actually is! It wasn’t the pretty flower arrangements or sparkling glassware that caught the eye of Jennifer from Jennifer’s Mentionables as she browsed through Pottery Barn’s Easter catalog but their tasty bird’s nest cupcakes that double as dessert and décor. How sweet is this?!?

Allison from The Golden Sycamore is totally digging the industrial look right and teamed up with her hubs to build a custom end table for their living room. Allison walks you through the steps to achieve the beautiful aged finish that is characteristic of industrial furniture.

I may not be a coffee drinker, but I can still appreciate a pretty mug when I see one! Janel from Nellie Bellie put her artistry to work by handpainting this ceramic mug for a special friend’s birthday. Janel doodled away on the plain white mug with ceramic paint markers to take it from drab to fab!

Grapevine and Flower Wreath

A white floral jingle bell wreath caught the eye of Virginia from LiveLoveDIY back before Christmas. Even with the arrival of spring, Virginia hasn’t been able to get the wreath out of her mind. Well, she can finally stop ogling its picture since Virginia now has her own rendition, a much “sassier” spring version that flaunts tons of white blooms with glass pearls, green glitter butterflies, and mini disco balls for extra pizzazz!
