I do output post recipes and just pretty much anything else that doesn't make it on to my channel so in today's video I'm going to be sharing with you guys a spring home decor project as well as a few

thumbs up if you do and if you want to be notified whenever I post a new video and make sure to click on the bell and one last thing before I get started recently I had the opportunity to film with a ship show with the ship team shift is a grocery delivery service it's available in a lot of the cities around the country and it's just the coolest thing it saves you time it's just home delivery so you don't have to go to the store and I just I love it it saves me a lot of time so I was on their show with my husband I did one of my favorite recipes he did one of his favorites I will have a link for that episode in a description box as well as a link to my blog I didn't step-by-step instructions of the recipes that we did on their show on my blog with a little more info on shift so please check that out I would really appreciate it and I think that's all I have to say so I hope that you guys enjoyed this video and let's get started I'm going to begin with the home decor project now in a lot of my DIY videos I always say it's quick and easy but this one it really is very quick and very easy so I found these wooden boxes at targets I think they were only six or seven dollars each really affordable and I also found an acrylic paint there and a copper finish originally I was only going to paint the outsides of the boxes but when the paint was dry I just when it looks like the finish looked really nice and it looks like it was just how I bought it honestly I thought it would look I don't know I just wasn't expecting it to look as good as it did so I ended up painting the entire inside of the boxes I did about two to three coats until it was completely opaque and so you couldn't see any wood showing through and I loved the outsides just how I bought it playing I really like the contrast of the inside really bright and then the outside just simple for the next step I originally wanted to put like an agate stone in the center and honestly I'm not sure if that's how you say that word so I'm just going to put a couple of those on the screen so you know what I'm talking about but I couldn't find any of those so I bought these coasters and they're also in hexagon shape exactly like the box and they have a cool pattern on it it just looks really modern but kind of like a trendy twist which is definitely my style as far as home decor goes so I just put those in the center just one of them and that is it for this project after that I put them on the wall and they already came with hooks on the boxes so it's just such a simple thing it's like halfway done for you and I just think it's really versatile it could be like a wall of them all together and it could be like shelves that way or there's just so many ways to use these boxes so I really like how it turned out it's very simple but I love what it looks like it just fits and seamlessly with our style so I hope that you guys like it as much as I do and the next thing I wanted to talk about is they're very affordable and fun way to incorporate some fresh spring colors into your space instead of painting walls or buying a new rug or just anything that's expensive and time-consuming I love to buy some new pillows when this seasons change it's just a very simple and fast way to make a pretty big difference in your space at least I think so and I found this first one at Target it was on sale for only $20 and it's a pretty big pillow so I thought that was a good deal and has a palm leaf print on it and as you guys can tell from what's behind me I love palm leaf print I just think it's so fun and fresh and inviting and I do have a video on how I did that if you guys want to see it it's a really fun video and I'm obsessed with this dresser I will never get rid of it I seriously love it so much like probably more and more every day honestly so I will link that video down below but I just think palm leaf is perfect for spring since it's a plant obviously it just feels really fresh and springy so that's the first pillow and the other two are by Kate Spade I believe I bought those at HomeGoods so I'll try and link those down below hopefully I can find them online but obviously they're pink and white and I love the contrast of the palm leaf and then with the pink it's just really fun and I think it definitely has that springy vibe and it really makes a big difference in my living room so I'm going to link a bunch of like similar pillows down below if you guys let this style that I'm going for for me I just really look for really bright colors but also a lot of colors that are contrasting so that it stands out so yeah I will link a bunch of similar styles below as well and my last spring home decor tip is probably a rather expected one and that is to have fresh spring flowers in your home now I wanted to mention this for a couple reasons one for the vases I think that they can get pretty expensive and the ones that I've found are very affordable I think they look really nice and high-end and definitely have a springy feel to them but in a very modern way which is definitely my style and just for ideas of where to put them I think a lot of people tend to put flowers in their kitchen or at their dining room table and if you don't spend a lot of time there then I feel like you don't really get to enjoy them as much as you should so I love to have them in my office right in front of my computer and I have them right here right now because I just want to know in the backdrop of this video but when I'm not filming this I have it just right in front of Mike pewter and I spent a lot of time in here so I definitely want to have some flowers in here so I can just see them all throughout the day and then the white vase I have in the living room because we spent a lot of time in there as well so the pink base is from Target and it comes in three different colors and also had a cork in the top of it so it isn't technically a vase but I think it looks really cute for just a small bouquet of flowers and the white one is also from Target and they both have a pearlescent finish on them I shouldn't have said that in the very beginning and that's why I think they're very springy but again in like a modern way because it doesn't have like florals on it but it just has like a pink and light blue sheen on the outside of both of them so I really really like them I'm going to link those down below and a bunch of similar styles do you guys like that style then you will like the ones in the description box so that is pretty much it for this spring home decor video I wanted to keep it short and fun so I hope that you guys enjoyed it please subscribe and thumbs up if you did and if you want to be notified when I post make sure to click on the bell also check out all the links in the description box I will have links for the ship Show episode I was in for my blog post and then a bunch of other things that I mentioned in this video so thanks
