Spring Decor | Farmhouse

I have spring fever so I am going to start decorating and creating some spring decor with a farmhouse vibe. Also, I am participating in the Love Your Home Challenge and this month is up-cycling. While searching for something fun to up-cycle I decided to use a vintage screen door for a spring chalkboard. Make sure you check out all the amazing up-cycle projects at the end.

It all started with an old chippy screen door and some chalkboard paint. If you have been reading my blog then you know I adore chalkboards and the colors; black, white and green, therefore, a chalkboard sign are is perfect for my spring decorating.

The door had to be cleaned since it was covered in dust, however, I was afraid to wash the door since some of the paint could be washed off. To my surprise, most of the chippy paint remained intact.

I ran to Home Depot and had them cut a piece of sanded 3/8 inch plywood for the chalkboard that would in the missing screen area of the door.

Before I began the project I gathered all my supplies, hence, saving time and effort.

The plywood was so smooth it did not require sanding, therefore, I grabbed my paint and got started.

Using a foam roller and the Handy Pail I painted the board with chalkboard paint and let it dry.

While the paint was drying I completed my design for my chalkboard I wanted to paint on the chalkboard. I wanted to use the chalkboard paint so I could add some chalk dust to the artwork and it would last.

I traced my design onto the painted board and started painting the design using a variety of paintbrushes.

Once the paint was dry I attached the chalkboard to the screen door using 3/4″ screws and countersink drill bit. See how to countersink in this video.

Decorating with Spring  Decor

Nothing says hello spring like beautiful peonies in a willow basket with a burlap bow. Making pretty bows adds that something special to your floral arrangments, wreaths and more see my earlier post and see how I make my favorite bows HERE.

Handmade Bird Nest and Cupcake Stand

During my spring fever decorating marathon, I paid a visit to my storage lockers looking for my spring decor, unfortunately, I was unable to find my bird nests. I decided I could make some with moss and items from my yard (you can see how I made them here).

My spring farmhouse decor needed some pretty wooden display stands or pedestals, so I thought why not DIY some. I made some in an earlier post you can read about that here.

My next project was transforming candlesticks and wood plaques into Farmhouse pedestals aka cake stands. Then I made bird nests that sit on top of the pedestals. See how I made them in the video below:

That turned out so cute. Now you have me on the hunt for an old door! I have an empty spot in my kitchen and this would look great.
