Now that we have completed most of the mechanical repairs after moving into our new home, it’s time to start work on some cosmetic changes. One of the first rooms getting a makeover is the dining room.

It was time to update the window of our piano teacher’s studio. {Check out our first window display here.} Since Easter is already almost here, I decided to go with a more general spring theme so we could leave it hanging for a while. What could be more spring than flowers, birds and butterflies.
