Blogger's best Spring home tour

Look at all that gorgeousness! I promise I'll share all the links to everyone's Spring home tours once I've shown you how I've decorated my Texas home for Spring!

Bright Spring home decor

We haven't lived in Texas long; I'm married to a Pastor, and we've lived all over the country (you can read more about our journey here). Decorating for the seasons is a favorite of mine, but there's just something about Spring. When seemingly dead plants come to life and bare branches leaf out, it brings hope.

Here in the southeast part of Texas, we don't get too many Spring bulbs. But heck, I can't complain...the roses are still blooming! I get my 'Spring flower fix' by planting heaps of flowers and herbs on the patio, and indoors by decorating with mostly faux florals.

Just call me plant lady

The exception would be our sunroom; filled with live plants, it's paradise! I recently moved some furniture around and created a little 'library table' covered in some of my favorite home decor books as well as houseplants.

The windows in this room face southeast, so it's the perfect light for growing plants that thrive. I've added ferns and ivy, Swiss cheese plant and an orchid. My African violets are still going strong because I follow these two simple growing tips for violets, and my fiddle leaf fig is huge!

This is the ideal spot to sit and read, surrounded by all that purified air!

And in case you're feeling super jealous about my green thumb skills at this point, this should make you feel better...I cannot grow succulents to save my life! I think I overwater them, because they all die. Every time I try! Yep, the easiest plant to grow and I cannot do it!

Spring living room

Our living room is adjacent to the sunroom, in fact they share a fireplace. I filled this room with faux tulips (click here to see my Spring mantel) that are incredibly life like.

One of my easy DIYs was inspired by Jennifer at Cottage on Bunker Hill. It's an easy way to create forced faux tulip bulbs in a flower pot. You can click here to see how to make them.

I flipped my chippy white door to the aqua side and hung a painted and aged flower pot wreath filled with moss and flowers. This dollar store project is easy on the budget but you can see the big impact it makes.

I made a sweet Spring tray vignette for the new coffee table that Mr DIY and I built (more on that soon) and hung the inexpensive DIY Spring wreath I made last year above the sofa.

I brought out the faux stone bunny planter I made last year, as well as my eggs, both store bought (thank you HomeGoods) as well as the DIY ones I've made over the years.

There's my chalk painted robin's eggs, and hand painted gingham eggs and the cottage floral decoupage eggs I made last year. They are so cute in glass hurricane jars and piled in a wood dough bowl.

This is the only peek I have of my kitchen because it's a mess! That's what happens when you have teenagers and young adults living at home, eating at all hours!!

Thankfully the dining room stays tidy...probably because we rarely use it! In the dining room it's all about my vintage blue and white dishes that I've been collecting for years! I love spying one at a thrift store for a couple bucks, although they're getting more difficult to find as more people are collecting. Etsy is usually a good place to check if you're interested in starting (or adding to) your own collection. 

I made blue and white decoupage chargers with floral napkins to match my vintage plates. This project was so inexpensive and a great way to bring more of the blue and white to my dining table!

hung a plate wreath on the wall, using some of my treasured dishes. They're framed inside my huge French painted frame that was a yard sale find and one of the very first projects I ever blogged about nearly 8 years ago!

The centerpiece on my dining table was a super easy DIY that I'll be sharing next week.

Are you feeling the vintage vibes yet? It's more of a modern take on Sunday dinner at grandma's house!

In the sitting room I did just a light refresh for Spring.

I switched out the wreath on my antique window, another Spring DIY from last year.

This room stays pretty much the same all year, with the exception of pillows and artwork. It's a room that is cut off from the rest of our home, so it doesn't get much use.

However, it needs to be pretty because it's the first room you see when you walk in the front door!

You might recognize the DIY farmhouse clock below because it often hangs on our chalk painted fireplace mantel. I swapped it out with the large chunky mirror this year.

The flowers and greenery spill over into every corner of our home, in celebration of Spring! These peonies are such a pretty color!

  1. I LOVE all your flowers!! Simply can't get enough of them in the Spring and Summer!! I tried to hard to be a indie plant lady, but I have 2 cats and they eat EVERYTHING!!! Grrrr! I decided I'd stick with my outside garden until they are no longer eating my plants. So I'll just live vicariously through you in the mean time 😉 Loved your tour Cindy!!!

  2. I so much enjoyed your spring home tour, Cindy! I'm impressed with the houseplants that you are able to grow in your sunroom. I'm great with outdoor gardening but not so great with indoor plants. I hope that you'll soon enjoy a special meal at your beautifully decorated dining room table with your family. In your dining room, I love how you used your frame to display your boxwood wreath surrounded by your pretty blue plates. It's always a pleasure to see your decor!

  6. That was so fun to get a tour of your beautiful home for Spring, Cindy! And I didn't know your hubs was a pastor! Oh, the big kids cooking in the kitchen at all hours; I can so relate. Totally why my kitchen won't be on the tour this round; too hard to keep it clean...think I'm giving up:( Your blue and white table setting is so pretty. I had to to hold myself back from a really pretty blue and white set at the thrift store yday...$35! But I just hate to have to find a spot to store them; I'm at my max. Happy Spring and Happy Easter!
