In a previous post, ADD Decorating, I shared my love of changing up my home decor often. With April knocking on my door, I took the opportunity to embrace spring and welcome it into my home, changing up some of my home decor, yet again. Anyone surprised? This time around, I was able to decorate completely with all thrifty finds. Let me share with you what Thrifty Spring Decorating looks like
My decorating began with a new piece I acquired from a cute repurposing shop that was closing. Typically, I do not buy a piece that is completely finished, but this buffet was priced to move. You know me, an awesome deal does not get past me too often 😉 So this piece became my focal point.
I added an old perfectly chippy window from my stash, to the wall behind the buffet. I felt it just needed a little something -something to dress it up bit. I think a pink wreath would do the trick. I love pink. It makes me smile.
To add some symmetry, a pair of lamps I found at a local thrifty store worked out great. Then to finally frame out the new found buffet, I brought out my chippy green shutters that first made their debut in December. I was glad they were able to find a new home within my Thrifty Spring Decorating
Some thrifty accessories added to the top, and the look is complete. Thrifty Spring Decorating…. check! Well, maybe I’ll do a bit more change-ups. I just can’t stop!!

Wow. Love the step by step photos. What an awesome find, that buffet was a must have! You will have so much fun throughout the seasons decorating it with your skills. Now I just don’t know how in the world I’m getting by without a set of chippy shutters and a chippy window frame! Your decorating talent is always impressive.

I’m in love with that buffet and the way you decorated it. Will you please come to my house and decorate my buffet? 🙂 I have the lamps and a photo collage behind it. My tabletop decor needs some inspiration. Thanks for sharing yours. You can take any piece and make it look refreshed and absolutely beautiful!

Love this! I’ve been searching for a “chippy window” around my town without any luck! I love the colors you chose! Beautiful!

Chippy windows are hard to come by…
Check your craigslist, Laura
