Goodwill Easter Projects (My Spring Entryway)

Pin It

I love Easter..the bunnies, bright colors, spring dresses, the great weather here.. I love it ALL. Here are a few Goodwill transformations in my entryway right now.

This is my bunny shelf I found for $3.00.

I sanded, primed, filled the holes with wood putty, and painted it Spa Blue (a paint from Hobby Lobby pictured below.) I love cherry blossoms so this paper, also from Hobby Lobby, is perfect for the sheves...I love that I can use him as a fab focal piece or maybe even serve some Easter cookies or treats from it.

The next project is a beveled piece of wood from Goodwill ($2) that I primed & painted the same blue. I had a pack of these wall decals from Target left over from years ago that I saved from my daughter's nursery. (See it pays to hoard baby stuff sometimes :o) ) They happen to be cherry blossoms so I used those to turn it into a piece of wall art. I like that they are removable in case I want to do something different with that piece of wood later.

Finally, here are my Goodwill candlesticks turned Easter topiaries from last year. You can read about them here.

They fit in perfect!!

So what do you think? Do you love thrift store transformations too? :)

Do you decorate for Easter? I think I confused my daughter because she asked, "So mom do I use my Easter basket on Patties day?' HA

Have a beautiful weekend! xo

I wish I could spot these kind of finds at the Thrift Store better. I need to try going more often. The bunny shelf is my favorite! I'm trying to decorate a little for Easter this week.
