Dining Buffet + Easter Vignette

Here it is! My cute breakfast nook dining buffet.  It used to have a very mid-century modern top, but it's in my garage so I can have a cute place to put all my decor.  Because why would I want to put something practical on there when I can fill it with decorations?? Can you believe Nick picked this color? I didn't like it that much at first, but now I LOVE it! And it's getting more and more in style all the time (think 50's pastel kitchen refab that is going crazy on pinterest right now). The color I used is the only one that looks at all like this at Lowe's in the Valspar section.  I'm so good at giving directions huh? But I can tell you that I used these allen + roth drawer pulls in polished silver, I just love that they are the perfect mix of modern and frilly.  I also bought glass knobs at Lowe's for the two doors. Apparently Rustoleum is way better quality paint, but Valspar has all the pretty colors, whatcha gonna do?

Here is a view of the full wall in my breakfast nook. All the decor was purchased at Kirklands. My sister-in-law Anna painted my beautiful floral "Allred" sign, I made the Easter Bunny paint stick sign (you can find it here,) I painted the Ball jar with white chalk paint then sanded it down to make it shabby, got my tree at Home Goods, my mom gave me the cake stand trio from Deseret Book, and I thrifted the other items. Wouldn't this look even better if the wall behind it was shiplapped (still convincing Nick on that one.) 

Now let's look at all the paintstick bunnies, two of which I made for my sisters. 

Let's look at a couple more pictures just for fun. 

Here is the best I could find of the before - (it was a very deep red wood - totally clashed with my new floors. Actually I think it clashed with everything)

Happy spray-painting! and bunny-making!
