Hello lovelies!! I have a super easy makeover to share with ya’ll today! Also the last time you saw my dining room was for Christmas, so I thought it was time to share it again sans the Christmas flair.
First up, here is the cutie pie pitcher I am making over today:
I found it marked down not once, but twice, at the thrift store to $1.98. This is a nice pitcher and it is a great size. I’ve included a few affiliate links so you can find the products I love.
I didn’t really mind the green so much but I knew white would be more versatile. I went digging through my spray paint hoard and found a can of glossy white that I picked up at an estate sale forever ago. (My favorite place to search at estate sales is usually the garage…you can often find paint for a steal!)
Go easy on each coat so you don’t get any drips!
It looks perfectly at home now on our dining room table!
And the finish is really pretty up close:
Looks like it was always white. I filled it with faux greenery I found at Michaels a couple of months ago.
Not too bad for a $2 clearance pitcher from the thrift store, eh?
And here’s our dining room ready for the warmer months ahead:
This room is just to the left as you walk in the front door.
I mentioned before that my favorite way to add a touch of Spring to any space is greenery, like this swag I added across the top of my hutch…
I used the same greenery swags that I used to make my this $7 Spring wreath a couple of months ago:
See that simple tutorial HERE. They are from Hobby Lobby…I just joined a few together with a little floral wire, and staple gunned them in place.
Did you notice we also got a new rug?
You can find this one on Amazon HERE. We have the 7X9 size. It sounds crazy to have all these light colors in a place where we eat food, but we only use this space at Holiday gatherings, so it just sits looking pretty the rest of the year.
And remember the light fixture? I was really unsure about it when we moved in, but it has grown on me and I kinda love it now.
I thought I would paint the chrome parts white, but that’s a project for another year or maybe never ha ha.
I bought these lanterns and this faux fur runner at the Holidays, but I think they still work.
The runner is just so whimsical.
If you missed our Christmas dining room where I shared update#2 of this table and chairs, you can see it HERE.
That mirror came from Kirklands.
Glossy white spray paint isn’t just perfect for pitchers…how about figurines? A great way to unify a collection!
I’ll be back here Thursday sharing what I created with this empty frame:
See ya then!
UPDATE: I can’t wait for ya’ll to see what this frame turned into…check it out now HERE! 🙂
