Easter Buffet and Hutch

I always start to get the winter blues at this time of year.  I’m really not a winter person and long for the warm weather to arrive.  But just because it is winter outside doesn’t mean that I can’t have a little Spring inside.  So I pulled out my Easter decorations over the weekend and put away all signs of winter…

Easter Decorating Ideas - Love this buffet and hutch!
Now this buffet and hutch have a little story.  Back in November I decided that I was going to paint all of our dining room furniture {oh and why not paint the kitchen table at the same time}. Like pretty much everything else I do, this task required way more time than I expected and I encountered my fair share of problems along the way.  If you follow along on Facebook, I’m sure you will remember all of my whining and complaining..

Anyways, with all the busyness of Christmas {as well as the end of my patience} I never ended up completing the project. I tidied things up as best I could and put the rest of the painting on the back burner.  There is a light at the end of the tunnel, however, and I think that I may be starting to get over the trauma of the whole thing.  Hopefully I will be able to get myself psyched up to complete the rest of it in the next month or so.  Please tell me there are other people out there that hate painting as much as I do.

So here is where I am at with the dining room…

I still need to paint all of the chairs white, there are some parts on the hutch that need to be completed, and the table top also needs to be painted and waxed again {long story…}  I promise I will do up a nice tutorial {with lots of info on what NOT to do} once all is eventually completed.  The room also needs a new coat of paint and I am hoping to paint the baseboards white to brighten things up a bit as well.

Just so you can see where I started, here’s a before picture from our Easter Brunch a couple of years ago…

Now back to the decorating part.  I don’t decorate a whole lot for Easter but I do like to put out a few Easter touches here and there…

Nothing too drastic but it is a nice reminder that Spring is on the horizon.

I still have a few other areas of the house to finish up and also have this bunny canvas to find a permanent home for…

    I really love the bunny garland – such a great idea to make all of the tails different! Hope you can stop by the enchanted oven for a visit.

    Hi Jenn – It is snowing outside as I type so I can understand your longing for Spring. Your Easter decor is just lovely. Painting the hutch made such a big difference to the room. I started a new party called ‘Saturday Sparks’ and would love to have you join if you get a chance.
    Have a Wonderful Day,
