Easter Decorating Part 3 - Center Piece

I had a lot of fun doing this center piece. I started it ages ago and have been adding stuff as I find them.
I am using a new platform now. A vintage mirror tray where I have painted the filigree rim pale green.
The bunny rabbit salt and pepper shakers were a recent thrift shop find. These are a "Leave out all year" item, definitely!
When Jon goes away over easter, I have many plans for the house! All the things that he would have a fit if he knew I was doing them :)
We have an overhead cupboard over the stove. I plan on taking the doors off the center on as it is really shallow and not much use.
I will put it to GREAT use for all my vintage spice jars and salt and pepper shakers.
It's the middle cupboard in the picture below, the one above the rangehood.
The only problem is, it will leave some ugly holes so I will have to work out something that is not permanent to cover it.

  1. That is exactly what I did in my kitchen, took off the doors to the shallow cupboard above the stove and now have perfect display shelves. I like to use the time my husband is away to put many more nails in the walls..

  2. Well, that is what I am going to do as my husband has "forbidden" me to put any more nails in the walls...yeah, right!

  3. I love the way you painted the fillagree green.lovely.

  4. Love all the decorating Peta! You are a clever gal!


  5. Thanks Shannon and Lisa-Gabrielle :)
