Thrifty Spring Foyer

Facebooktwitterpinterestmail

The redheaded minimalist has arrived 😯 .  I’m not sure where she came from, how she got here, or if she’ll stick around, but for today, she is in the house.  Our foyer is ready for Easter/spring and all it took was 1 ceramic bunny.  Yep.  One.  Ceramic.  Bunny.  Here’s the hopper, I mean kicker…I found the bunny at the thrift store a couple years ago [SCORE].  Welcome to the “Thrifty Style Team” April edition, and my “Thrifty Spring Foyer” which is part of “14 Thrifty Spring Home Decorating Ideas”.  Lots of THRIFTIES for ya.

Let’s see if you can find the thrift store bunny…

 

You may recall the black credenza I painted a couple years ago.  She still looks so pretty black, and I really get a kick out of complimenting the black with a deep radiant blue.  At first, I thought the credenza might look too large for the foyer, but it fit perfectly, and gave me so much storage space.  You might find this funny, but that one cabinet on the right is where I stash water bottles for my bedside table.  Our bedroom is to the right of that long mirror, so it’s a perfect spot to grab a midnight gulp of h20.  Hey, when you’re thirsty, you’re thirsty.

So, you might be wondering where in the heck is all the Easter spring decor, Julie?  Well, I say…what’s wrong with just the 1 bunny?  I think it’s rather beautiful, and a huge statement.  Okay, maybe I could have added a couple Easter eggs or something, but don’t forget I have 3 furry felines running around, and they have been very mischievous lately.  Our new rescue kitty, “Spooky” likes anything round including tomatoes 😯 .

Oh, and I also have that rather busy “Garden Glove Spring Wreath” on the front door, too.

I was thinking about adding some logs for our our fireplace down on the bottom rack.  What do you think of that idea?  I feel like it would add some rustic authenticity to it.  What would you add, or take away?  The original “Thrift Store Platter Wall” is also an affordable project.  Luckily, in the next photo you can’t see me taking the photo in that blurry platter.

With Easter only a few weeks away, I hope you can visit your local thrift store and have some fun hunting ceramic bunnies (they seem to have them a lot!).  I have a full collection of thrift store bunnies and they are all so beautiful.  I don’t think I could ever give something so pretty away to a thrift store, but then again not everything in the thrift store was given away knowingly, or freely.  Unfortunately, we have to remember that our favorite treasures will not all end up in our loved one’s hands.  However, we can rest assured that someone will find our treasures and bring new life to them…

    You are one kicker, I mean hopper, I mean bunny ahead of me! I have a bag of them that I couldn’t find last year, however I just found them last month and know where they are. I should put them out huh. How hard can that be? I’ll get hopping, I mean cracking.

  5. Hey Julie – Your plate gallery wall is inspiring. We also have a collection of silver and silver plate platters that we use in our decor. Love your idea of hanging them as a statement piece!

    Your ceramic bunny is so cute, Julie! I love all the wonderful thrifty tips you share. p.s. I am on my own minimalist journey, but for me, that means getting rid of close to everything….I feel like my house will be empty soon LOL

  7. Julie your home looks beautiful and I love the way you decorated the foyer.

  8. I’m all for the simplicity of your spring foyer! If the simple changes make it feel like spring for you, then that’s just perfect. Also, with a bunny that cute, you really don’t need anything else. 🙂

  9. What a beautiful entry! And that bunny is too precious!! You have such a great eye! It’s so great linking up with you this week! xoxo

  10. Nancy says:

    Yes, all i takes is one great bunny. Perfect! don’t add a thing. I’m tired of all this rustic accent business anyway.

  11. cindy says:

    I think your less is more approach for Easter totally works! Cute bunny!!

  12. Danyele says:

    Rustic is a pain to dust. LOL It looks fabulous as is to me, but go with your instincts…everything you come up with looks wonderful. Love the bunny!

  13. Meegan says:

    Hmmm…I just put several silver platters and plates in my donation pile after moving. I think I need to pull them out before they get taken away! Thanks for inspiring me. AND, that darling bunny. He is so dang cute!

    Hi Julie:

    Nice touch with the simplicity, cute bunny.
    I missed letting you know how much I loved your tissue tree. I also buy that tissue at the $ store, such pretty colours.

    Cheers, Bette

  15. i think the bunny likes the attention. Just make sure he doesn’t drink your water!

  16. Deborah says:

    Awe that little bunny is adorable. So pretty

  17. Dad says:

    looks great.

  18. Jane says:

    I have only put out one bunny too, and I haven’t even shown her on the blog! I’m just beginning to recover from some renovations that we had going on for the past few months. Your bunny is as cute as can be, and because there is only one, you can really focus on how pretty it is.
