Early Bird of Spring

Happy Spring!  Well….not officially, but I am inspired to break out the Spring Colors and celebrate all things Spring!

Starting with my little Secretary.  I found this at a local Goodwill for a song.  Somewhat to the tune of $10, it was half off day!  All it needed was a little sanding, a little gluing to repair some wobbliness and it was good to go.Secretary in Memphis Blue with bird redouxinteriors

I used a Custom Blend of CeCe Caldwell’s Memphis Blue, a little Vermont Slate and hint of Simply White.  (I like to play chemist on the fly)…oh yes, and the little birdie was added from my favorite Graphic’s Site, The Graphics Fairy.

I added the sweet vintage knobs that had come from some other project and had ended up in my knob collection.

I think the “before” picture flew away, but this little birdie is ready for Spring and is now nesting at Paris Flea Market, which will be open this Thursday – Sunday.  Hope it flies away to a new home quickly.

Here is another little Spring Goodie.  This little side stool.  I loved the sweet vintage upholstered inset, it just needed a fresh coat of CeCe’s Alask Tundra Green:



Hope your week is off to a sweet song, sharing my Spring Flings at these bright parties:
