Dirt Road Adventures – Spring and Easter Inspiration

Welcome to Dirt Road Adventures! Let’s take a look back at everything happening last week. It includes lots of Spring and Easter Inspiration and more.

What was your week like? We were reminded that it’s not Spring yet!

We started the week with Spring-like weather, only to end the week feeling like winter once again.

We braved the weather and went to the beach. For once, we didn’t have a project and got to enjoy the newly renovated bathroom.

Doing a DIY remodel has its rewards, and the money we saved was amazing. I decided to share some of the resources we used to save on the kitchen and bathroom renovation.

While at the beach, we did a little thrift store shopping, and I found a couple of great deals.

The vintage garden tool was at Flea Body’s on Market Street, and the Ironstone pitcher is in perfect condition and a great deal at the Habitat ReStore.

We plan to spend a few more days and hope to find more treasures before heading home.

This is a look back at all my adventures this past week.

Before we left for the beach, I had several blog posts that you may have missed.

In Case You Missed It!

With Spring just around the corner, I started the week with outdoor inspiration.

See the How to Age New Clay Pots Tutorial and then hop over and take a Tour of the Front Porch Decorated for Easter.

The weather was colder again by mid-week, so I moved back inside with a fun Easter Tablescape filled with great thrift store finds.

Several items on the Easter Table are shoppable, click here.

The Thrifting With The Gals monthly series was filled with many vintage and thrifting ideas. I shared 19 Ways to Upcycle Vintage Picture Frames.

Finally, it’s time for a Spring Refresh in the Bathroom. These bathroom refresh tips are inexpensive ways to make your bathroom look fresh and new. Be sure to shop this style.
