Fun Spring Decor And A Simple Project

Hi Friends!
Hope you are doing well and staying healthy!  
We are well here...this week everything has leafed out and popped into beautiful blooms!  
My lilacs are in full bloom as are the apple trees! This week I worked on a little spring decorating 
and a simple project, to take advantage of this pretty time of year!

With all the scrap wood around here, a quick sign project came to mind!  
A piece of beadboard, with a simple whitewashing, was perfect.

 I made an easy pattern to print using Picmonkey, and then traced it, using transfer paper
onto the wood. Then I simply painted in the letters with black paint,
 and when it was dry gave it a light distressing with a sanding sponge.

I thought it would be so cute to use with some of the blooming flowers around here! 
This barnwood window frame planter would be perfect...

and pulled out an old wicker basket, and a couple of thrifted watering cans! 
I also used an old white plant stand I had.

    1. Thank you! They are fun to make...and mine are never perfect, distressing helps! But I love the look of hand painting!

  11. Love the sign Linda and love your whole vignette. The lilacs are beautiful. I planted a lilac tree this year and I hope in years to come it will give me beautiful flowers and that intoxicating smell. Have a great Memorial Day Weekend.
