Hi friends and welcome to February's Pinterest Challenge! We are a group of home decor bloggers who take on a monthly challenge and each put our own spin on it, hosted by Cindy at County Road 407. I love how Cindy mixed old and new decor for her lively Spring console table!

If you're new here, I'm Cindy too! I have loved decorating our home for the past five years. I'm Canadian-born, currently living south of Houston, Texas....yep, my curly hair has never been bigger, haha! If you're interested in reading about our family's journey across two countries, you can click here.

We are currently in another period of transition as Mr DIY was recently laid off. We are praying about our next possible move and even a career change, so many changes just around the bend! Did I mention our youngest graduates from high school in May? I am living in a state of constant prayer as we trust God to provide all the things in His timing. I know we'll end up in a great place, it's this waiting and not knowing period (where I'm not in control) that is so hard!

In the five years we've been in Texas, we have made this house such a great home. Some of my most popular DIY projects:

Pinterest Challenge

I would love to have you spend some time checking out our home! But, let's get back to this Pinterest Challenge!


It may still be winter, but Spring is definitely on all of our minds! Our inspiration image this month is a Spring Vignette, inspired by the following image from my friend Leen at Sand Dollar Lane.

Inspiration



Leen's home is decorated with a coastal theme (she lives near the beach in North Carolina), and her Spring vignette reflects those coastal vibes, with the pale blue glass and sand colored decor. If you read her post, you'll see she hung a large painting above her table, with all those dreamy coastal colors.

These are the elements I took away from Leen's image for my own Spring decorated console table using what I already had:

  • art above table
  • lamp
  • basket
  • books
  • greenery

Spring artwork

My jumping off point was the floral picture (see similar here) that I found last year at Hobby Lobby. It was marked down and I loved the vintage feel as well as the colors. The pinks and purples just feel like Spring to me! I created a focal point of artwork behind our console table by resting the floral print in front of the  DIY faux farmhouse clock and name sign that were already there.


Lamp

I don't have an outlet near the table for a lamp, so I chose to add a large hurricane lantern with a candle (see similar here). I elevated the lantern with a vintage book and added a fern baby next to it.


We used to have a huge golden rain tree in our front yard, but sadly lost it in the Texas freeze last year. The beautiful dried pink pods (the tree blooms in late October) were snipped from another tree in town this past fall. I piled the dried pods in a large basket (see similar here) and love how the colors mimic those in the floral picture.


Greenery

Leen has a large spray of leaves in a neutral pitcher. Last year I bought the world's ugliest vase from the thrift store and transformed it with a DIY texture paint using baking soda (see that here). The fun thing about paint is all the options! The blue vase has since been repainted a neutral color. I added a faux eucalyptus leaf stem (see similar here) for that height and more greenery that mimics the look of the inspiration image.


Basket

Under the table, I set a large basket filled with lightweight throws and a pink pillow to carry the pink color.


Books

I have never thought to add books and plants under a table, but inspired by Leen's image, that is exactly what I did! I don't own many vintage books, but I recently found this green cookbook at the thrift store and it is the perfect color for Spring!


Shop the look

All the spring color makes such an inviting feeling when you enter our home!

  4. Cindy,
    Your entry table is spot on. I loved the print you used and the colors are beautiful. I'm praying for your family as you go through so many changes. I trust that all things happen for a reason and it will be revealed to you and your husband. My husband and I just had a discussion about unanswered prayers and with hindsight on our side, how blessed we were. Keep us informed.

  6. Lovely spin on the inspiration with your console table. The pink pods are gorgeous and so pretty with the botanical artwork. Every detail is just perfect and I love how well it all works together!

  7. It looks so beautiful! I love the pinks and all the fresh Spring colors! Those pods are so beautiful, I'm so sad you lost that tree. I've never seen one like that! I got a lot ideas from your beautiful post.

  8. I will be praying for you and your family. Hoping your wait and answered prayers come sooner than later. The not-in-your-control is the hardest for me too. But God always takes care of his children and that brings me great comfort.

    Loved your table! It's beautiful! I think the wicker basket with the pink pods is my favorite part. I've never seen a tree like that and now will be on the hunt in October! I always think about adding more color (like my fave pink) but then I think I have to add it everywhere and then think it's overly feminine. Can you tell I over think things? Thanks for joining in. I love your style.

    1. Thanks so much Cindy, we sure appreciate your prayers! I tend to over-think as well, and often over-decorate!! I always ask my teenage daughter to help me edit out the excess stuff!!
