Crafting on Easter

Happy Easter, everyone. I hope you all had a great day with your families.
We relaxed, I painted a bit, watched movies, the girls looked for eggs.
My husband made me coffee and breakfast in bed. Sigh.
I cooked a nontraditional meal for dinner.
It was all very low key, I loved it!
I hid their baskets and they had to do a scavenger hunt to find them
They loved that!

I thought I would show you my painting project.
I have been wanting to get to this one for a bit but you know how that goes.
This is the before of the console.
That is my bedroom in the background, lots of painting needed in there!
This is a wide hallway that leads to the bedroom.

After! I love it a lot more now.

I put a new knob on it and
 distressed it a bit.

I shopped around my house and moved things around.

 I love this chippy garden sign and it was in an area where you didn't really see it.
Now you do!

I love bird houses and this one is adorable. It has the same chippy green paint as the garden sign.

We got snow yesterday, :( about 3 inches. It is snowing again as I type this.
We put 8 yards of mulch in yesterday, when it stops snowing I will take pictures so I can show you the before and afters of that.
Have a great week!

I'm linking with faded charm today!


  1. Wow, you had 3 inches of snow. We had a light dusting this morning but it didn't stick. It wouldn't be Easter in CO without snow or rain. Love the knob on your console table. You did a nice job painting and distressing it!

    Happy Easter!

  2. I love the console, and that knob. That sign is lovely too. Hope the snow goes away for you soon.


  3. I woner if snow on Easter is even possible in KY? A very warm and rainy springtime here.
    Matt made dinner--also non-traditional but good. We are all wanting to work in the gardens, but too wet!
    I like the arrangement on the console table--any display I create is subject to rearrangement by the cats!

  4. Love that knob you chose for that table! The birdhouse looks great on there too! :-)

  5. OOoohh la la! Your table is Shabfabulous and that knob had me at hello! I love to shop my house and the garden sign and bird house are the perfect touch! You got snow???!!!! Wowee! We are flooding like crazy here girlfriend! Can't wait to see your pretty gardens. I need to mulch but glad I didn't it would float away! LOL!
    Squishy hugs,

  6. Great job on the console! I need to get busy and get some more things painted too. RAIN here for days...not snow. So tired of rain and snow! ha!

  7. Snow? Oh my!

    Love your re-do of your console. Such pretties on it, too!

    Happy White Wednesday!
