Painting for Spring

 I've had this coffee table for about 10 years now, 
it came as a set with end table and media center,
all in black. 
At the time it fit right in with my decor, 
but my tastes have changed quite a bit since.
I'm much more into color now, 
with white as foundation.
But painting furniture can be problematic, 
either you do a lot of prep work
or put up with paint that scratches of over time.
Then I found out about chalk paint, yay!
There is no sanding or priming, 
and it really worked well on this piece.
So much so that I plan on doing the end table next!

 I added some bright and cozy throws to my boring brown sofa,
and already it feels lighter and brighter!

 I also made a new wreath 
using the base from my Xmas wreath, 
and substituting daffodils I crocheted and 
a bit of fabric scrap ribbon to hang.
I also am in the process of crocheting little 
yellow flowers for the fairy lights.

 
Have you added anything springy 
to your decor?
Bye for now!
