with all this unseasonably warm weather these past few weeks i’ve definitely gotten a little spring fever. since it’s still just a little early to start planting my annual flowers i decided to focus all this energy into sprucing up my side entryway.
so i added this fun little yellow bench, a few springy pillows made by yours truly using this tutorial, and of course a little bit of whimsy, an owl that says welcome spring. once everything was in place it still felt as though something was missing. so i looked high and low and came across four wooden plaques for 70% of that i thought might work. the hubby helped me join them together to make one large piece to limit the number of holes drilled into our brick. after hanging i thought it made the perfect back drop for my spring wreath.
in the future I may still add a pair of these to sit under the bench for color
and maybe a tin of flowers too
overall it was a fun little project and I think it will also be fun to switch things out as the seasons change and for special holidays.
