Life in the Before and After

I don't know about you, but I'm so ready for winter to be over. Now, you may think I'm crazy because I live in Phoenix and the weather couldn't be better. Case in point: Currently my windows are open, I'm wearing capri pants, and I walked the dog while wearing flip flops today! Anyway, back to the reason for this before and after! I needed to put my winter decorations away and start fresh for the spring, which is right around the corner. After my amazing trip to Goodwill the other day, I came home and made a fantastic centerpiece/vignette for my kitchen table.

Check out my process!



Here is my table before. I really wasn't happy with it to begin with, so I wasn't too sad to see it go back into storage.



A necessary component to any crafting project!



I started with these sweet milk class compote bowls



Added some dollar store flowers and oasis









One finished bowl!



Attempt one at my finished product. Yes, that's the shower curtain! Best find ever!



After I put everything together I thought it needed something else. I pulled out the placemats from my stash and the birds had been hibernating in another centerpiece in my bedroom.

Once again

After:



I'm pretty happy with the results! Tell me what you think!
