Spring Decor Idea House 2017 Part 2

Part 2 of the Spring Decor Idea House has just as many ideas as Part 1.  You’ll want to go back if you missed it! The trends are vintage pieces repurposed (especially ladders and shutters), galvanized metal items, and reclaimed wood. You’ll get ideas of what to look for at garage sales this summer!

At the entrance, an old ladder becomes a focal point. With the addition of the hanging mirror and arrangement on the table, the ladder becomes the backdrop and lifts your eye upward.

Ever thought of using dish towels on your dining room table? Yes, they are used as a table runner and placed at an angle! Nobody knows they are just dish towels. With dish towels, you have access to a variety of colors, stripes, and floral patterns, too! Try it!

Permanent cabbage leaves serve as placemats. The napkin is folded as a utensil holder with Lilly of the Valley permanent stems inserted and decorated simply with twine.

Wood planter boxes decorated with taper candles,  permanent cabbage, and moss are placed at an angle. In between the boxes, floral vases and candlesticks give height. Beautiful table!

Two vintage screens from a stable, make a dramatic backdrop for the vintage pieces. Plants on each side give balance and are in galvanized metal containers.

In the vintage style kitchen above the stove, they used vintage lighting kits along with garden hooks for the pendant lights. A wire basket serves as a cookbook holder.

The walls are painted in chalkboard paint with old rakes turned into utensil hooks.

Interesting “curtains” are made from corrugated metal. They used binder rings to hang them and twine as decoration. Have you ever thought of this?

There’s a mix of contemporary and vintage. patterns and prints, galvanized metal with reclaimed wood, all showcasing todays’s trends. A team of decorators have created this showcase and I know you’ll enjoy these fresh new ideas.

Next, in case you have the side of a barn or garage that needs decorating, this idea is a real attention-getter! A bit whimsical and fun! Spring Decor Idea House 2017 Part 1 grandparentsplus.com

Inside the front porch, two vintage horse stable screens become a welcoming background for the containers filled with Spring flowers.

This lovely Spring table is ready for a luncheon on the front porch. The tablecloth is simply a drapery panel! In the center, a vintage picture frame is layered with grass mats, lanterns, artificial greens and accented with pink silk tulips. The place-setting uses birdhouse place card holders placed in small terracotta pots filled with moss. Napkins shaped as flowers fill the bowls at each place. Wouldn’t you like to be invited?

Dishtowels, clothesline, clothespins, and insulators, create the unique window treatments. The wooden flowers below each window, sit in decorative grass boxes.

Last, but not least, is a whimsical “wreath” idea. Layer a rattan mat, with a terracotta saucer, a glazed saucer and and small pot.  Inside place something whimsical and unexpected! Another idea is to fill the pot with silk flowers cascading out.
