Typically, I’m not a person who uses violet tones in my home décor; however, Easter is an exception. When I decided to use Pantone’s color of the year Radiant Orchid my thrift store stash came to mind. I knew it held candidates for a good paint make-over.
The stash yielded a wooden vase and a vintage wooden pedestal fruit bowl. Here is how I used them.
The wooden vase freshly painted with Radiant Orchid holds some lovely spring branches and
the wooden pedestal fruit bowl holds ordinary plastic Easter Eggs.
I struggled with how to decorate the mantel for Easter this year but when I found the white picket fence garden borders at the thrift store, inspiration struck.
The picket borders are just propped up on the mantel. The little brown iron birds are from Hobby Lobby’s Spring collection which is now 40% off.
I fell in love with these little birds the moment I spied them.
The Easter Bunnies have been around for quite a few years.
I tried to keep my Easter décor simple and non-breakable. My two-year old granddaughter loves to handle everything so some of my Easter pretties will not be coming out this year.
I’m glad you stopped by today to see my simple Easter Mantel and how I used Pantone’s color of the year.
