So, FYI, Easter is on Sunday. THIS Sunday. Did it sneak up on you too? It’s like a month ahead of schedule this year! Sheesh. I’m still recovering from St. Patrick’s Day. Ha ha, not really. Our St. Patrick’s Day celebration consisted of wishing each other a Happy St. Patrick’s Day. Although, I did get a bit of hate mail for my ‘unenthusiastic’ feelings toward the holiday. So that was fun.
But no one can accuse me of being an Easter scrooge! Easter YEAH! Easter HEY! Easter WOO! Here come some candy-colored makeovers to celebrate the season of rebirth!
Kat at Katch of the Day made over this dresser with the great shade of robin’s egg blue, or Cadbury egg blue, as I like to think of it. Can you believe she found this perfect condition vintage Basset dove-tailed drawer dresser on the curb? The CURB!
And not only does this coral ombre dresser makeover remind me of a big bowl of jelly beans, yumz, Sarah at Funcycled also gives the full tutorial on how to paint ombre. Hint: Start with drawer number four.
Better After reader Laurena found this little hutch on Kijiji, and painted it yellow. Hold on a second, it’s not yellow! That’s because she hated that horrible yellow and it killed her painting mojo for a while. Then one day, when her mojo had recovered, she started mixing a few paints together, landed on this beautiful blue, and it was happily ever after from there.
OK, this dresser already looked pretty darn good. And all the cute accessories certainly didn’t hurt. (Note to self: start decorating with pinwheels immediately). But Jenna wanted more. Not a lot more. Just a hint of mint. A sheen of green. A shade of jade. I can do this all day. A gauge of sage. A deal of teal. A degree of pea. Ok, it’s getting weird. So she added just a touch of color to the inner panels and it makes all the difference. See more on her blog Paddington Way.
And what’s an Easter roundup without a little yellow? Here are some of my favorite yellow springtime things: daffodils, baby chicks, Peeps, and this happy dresser from Becky at The Barefoot Seamstress. (I was actually lying about loving one of those yellow things. Guess which one. Hint: it’s not Becky’s dresser! Becky’s dresser is fab!)
