Happy month of March! What's the weather like? It certainly didn't come in like a lion here. It's been bright and sunny with blue skies; very spring like indeed!
As I'm feeling the joys of spring, I thought I'd do a mini series of sharing some spring decorating ideas - nothing too complicated or new; just repurposing, re-using and sprucing up. so welcome to the first of 'Simply Spring!'
This is the first of my makeovers. I have had this tool box/trug languishing in my garage and decided it was time to put it to work.
I had painted it black so in keeping with spring I went with a couple of coats of a pale green paint - this is it prior to staining. For the lettering I printed off 'Welcome Spring' in papyrus font and cut them out - a bit tedious, but it worked.
This is how it looks with some teak stain - I used a dry brush method and even wiped over it with a piece of kitchen paper and it gives it a lovely worn look.
Now for the fun part to fill it with a wool bunny and some primroses and greenery in the back.
Welcome Spring! As easy as that!
Thanks again for your visit and a warm welcome to new followers!
Have a great week!
