Welcome to the Bloggers Best Spring Home Tour, hosted by my sweet friend Kelly of The Tattered Pew . It's always fun to join a group of home decor lovers and share our ideas with you to inspire you! For my new visitors, I'm Cindy, a chronic over-decorator and lover of all things home, especially if it's thrifty! I love vintage and antique pieces and a cozy home that feels welcoming to all who enter.

One of my favorite things about blogging and sharing my love of home decor, is to help you save money on your home, so look for my Thrifty Tips sprinkled throughout this post to find out how to save money! My Spring dining room decor usually starts with an inspiration piece, and this year it was these vintage rabbit salt dough ornaments that I created.

They ended up looking like little pieces of vintage or antique art, and it was fun to add one to each place setting on my Spring table. I created little nests with Spanish moss and tucked them into ironstone bowls with the bunnies and a little egg.

Another DIY craft I recently finished just in time to add to my Spring table were these vintage style drop cloth carrots . Thrifty Tip: Whether you own true vintage or antique pieces or you cleverly craft them, it's pretty easy to replicate this look for pennies!

Let me back it up and show you the whole room and then we'll focus on more of the details and talk about saving money on your Spring decor.

It has become a room for me to play with my vintage and antique dishes, move things around, decorate and style, and leave the mess out! My dining table and chairs got the same treatment after we found them at a Nashville flea market for only $270 for the set. Mr DIY helped me cut new plywood seats and make the cushions for them, and they are so comfortable. It's something I do every few years when I'm ready for a change, but don't want to dish out big bucks for a new dining set. The black hutch is filled with either vintage white ironstone or blue transferware , all pieces thrifted for very little. Thrifty Tip: If you love the look of a collected home, remember to mix vintage and antiques with new pieces!

Thrifty Tip: Drop cloth is such a budget-friendly fabric for crafting and making home decor items. For the centerpiece on my Spring table, I added a long wood riser that I recently made with the help of Mr DIY.

It's great being able to elevate the centerpiece, and easy to pick it up and move it when (if) we decide to eat at the table! I laid a 6 ft lambs ear garland along the wood riser, weaving it around brass candlesticks. I made those recently from clay and love their glossy tops and polka dots. I also had to add this reproduction chocolate bunny mold that I just found at Marshalls because it was the perfect addition to my Spring table.

I hope you've enjoyed these budget friendly decorating ideas for a Spring table. I love contrast, there is so much beauty when you combine something rustic and weathered with something feminine and soft!
