Freshened Up the Hoosier for Spring

Hi everyone, how are you… I hope good and that you are enjoying some spring weather! Right now we are having sunshine, Yay!!!
I repainted the hoosier with Polished Pearl by Behr said to be a match of ASCP old white.

I had painted it with a shade of gray from Valspar and really didn’t care for it, it had to much blue in it for me.

An artist I’m not.lol, but it will have to do, I don’t know if you know this but my favorite season is Spring some like Fall more
but not me.

I didn’t change the top to much, just added a trophy that I found at TJMaxx.

I’m loven the brass colored letters on the book spines too.

I’ve also been trying a different styling on it, trouble is everything looks good on it!

See what I mean!
I don’t know about the lampshade though, had it and decided to see what it looked liked, I have two gift cards for PB so I
may buy the burlap one, the one on it is from Target. I also need to add one more thing to make it an odd number.
funny what you see after the picture is taken;) Oh, how do you like the crock lamp on the hoosier, found it a good 5 years ago for $5.00.

I just love your hoosier! I had one years ago but had to sell it when we moved to a place that didn't have room for it. Oh how I regret that now! I also love that scale. Take care - Dawn @ We Call It Junkin.com

Such a sweet hoosier and I love the lamp. I always see the brown crocks but haven't seen a blue one yet...I wouldn't have been able to pass it up either!

You can never go wrong with white. I love the chalkboard doors and the button jar on the scale! Thank you for sharing at What We Accomplished Wednesdays. Have a lovely week! ~Deborah

I think your hoosier is amazing and always looks wonderful, no matter what changes you make.

Love your hoosier, Rondell! I think the new color goes much better with it. I can totally picture you adding things and taking others out, it's always like that :) Love the wire basket and the scale holding the jar full of buttons, pretty!
