Pops of bright color to welcome Spring

This post should be titled, purple bunnies, gold and silver eggs, painted glass jars and DIY Easter grass…….so many colorful things going on!   Painting glass jars has been done all over blogland and I’m slow to hopping on this trend but I decided to try painting mason jars with Valspar’s color of the year, Radiant Orchid. It’s a bright color and not to everyone’s liking but in small doses it looks pretty…..that’s just my opinion.  A bouquet of flowers from the grocery store looks perfect in the painted jar helps, brightens up the kitchen and my mood. I had a serious case of the winter doldrums!

I really like this cheery look in my kitchen. The tablecloth is from Target and the “move mountains” tag was with a Miss Mustard seed tee shirt that I won.

I used primer on the jars before I painted them. You can see brush strokes but that adds to the charm!
Next I painted a glass vase that had a design on it.

Painting it helped  make the design more noticeable. I added pussy willow stems and put it in the dining room and there it is! Amazing what a little color can do!

It’s a nice punch of color in the corner of the room. I think Valspar may have chosen this color because it complements the grays and greige colors that are so popular now. Could be….

The verdict is out on these painted bunnies. Since they were in need of freshening up they got painted too.

This will be the centerpiece at Easter. Orchid bunnies and gold and silver eggs! It’ll be whimsical for sure.

The faux eggs were spray painted with metallic gold and silver. There’s also gold and silver wrapping paper in the Easter grass. No need to buy Easter grass. Just put it through your paper shredder.  You could use any colorful paper. Leftover wrapping paper, magazines or any shredded paper.
I’m so glad that cold and dark weather is almost gone and it helps to lighten up with some bright color inside…….a little Radiant Orchid, some fresh flowers, purple bunnies, pretty shredded paper and gold and silver eggs! Yes it’s Spring…..finally!
