Spring Entry Way

Spring is here, glorious glorious spring!

I don't remember ever being this excited for it before. 

I've been working on a project all day and I'm really excited to share it with you. You all know how I love to rummage through my own closets and rediscover items I forgot I had, and then give them new life! A few of you may remember this big chunky antique frame. It used to be gold and brown, I used it in a fall tablescape when I had just started blogging here).  And although I still love the look of the patina it had, I've been yearning for decor that is a brighter...crisper...springy-er palate.








I've been having a love affair with the mixture of crisp white and cottage colors lately, like what you might see on vintage floral tablecloths, jadeite and old flour sacks. I found this one at an antique mall this week. I wish I had a frame twice as long, because the feed sack is huge and full of great advertising graphics!














I decided to paint the frame, distress it a bit and add the feed sack. I just tacked it all around the edges to the back .






Together with my old yard birds...





















And this chippy old metal bin full of greenery...



And a basket of colorful pillows made from vintage tablecloths...


It makes for a brighter, fresher spring scene in the entry way!







Can't beat a project that's "cheap-cheap-cheap"




Thank you for looking♥

Hi Linsey, Love the framed feedsack. We were cleaning out the garage last week and came across a large round vintage frame and we talked about using one of our feedsacks in it. After seeing yours {and falling in love with it} we have to do it. You mentioned you wish you had a longer frame...those long skinny door mirrors make great frame especially if you can find an old one. I seen many with decorative frames. Of course you can go the new route with one from Wal-Mart or ? Anyway, great post and love the pics of your entry. Abbey
