Hey gang! It’s time for another round the Lifestyle Of Love blog hop hosted by my good friend Cindy at County Road 407! A Lifestyle of Love is a group of super talented ladies that get together every other month to bring you beautiful vintage and farmhouse decorating ideas using antique and repurposed goodies!
This month’s theme is hutches! If you’re coming over from Postcards From The Ridge, isn’t Angie’s hutch amazing?
I decorated this hutch with blue glass a few weeks ago for spring. One of my readers suggested that I keep the blue glass in there all year. Challenge accepted!
So all the blue glass will stay in for the entire year, and I’ll just switch out the rest of the decor for the seasons. This will be interesting!
Before we get too deep into this, I wanted to mention that I bought this hutch a couple of years ago and painted it. I posted a tutorial including the paint and supplies I used here.
When I transitioned the hutch from spring into sprummer, I didn’t change anything on top or the side cabinets. I just changed the middle up by removing the resin birds, nests, and pothos vines and replaced them with flowers.
The flowers I used are violas (bottom left), bacopas (top middle) and dahlias (bottom right.)
Same flower varieties, different angle of the shelf.
People often ask me how I get outdoor flowers that need a lot of sun to survive indoors. There’s really no secret – I just don’t keep them indoors for more than a few days.
This time of year I’m constantly buying flowers to plant in our yard, but I am rarely able to plant them the same day that I buy them. So I figure I might as well bring them inside for a few days to enjoy them until I can get around to planting them.
If I don’t get around to planting them outside in 3-4 days, the flowers will start looking a bit sad and I know it’s time to get them back outside in the sun to rejuvenate them.
I’m having my mom over for dinner on Mother’s Day so I hope they will hold out until then!
This hydrangea I one of eight that I will be planting in front of our deck at the front of our house. Isn’t it gorgeous? I hope I can keep it blooming purple blooms each year!
That’s it for me! Next up is Common Ground – Debra takes her hutch styling to the next level!
