Bird Watching

Think my husband will notice if I paint our newel post? via House of Turquoise.  And this room is beautiful yet quite simple, I think it could be replicated on a budget.

Britt is the proud owner of a Baby Grand, find out how she got it for FREE.

This is one of the most ingenious tutorials I’ve seen in awhile.  Amy was inspired by this Niermann Weeks chandelier and she replicated the texture on a thrift store find.


Also, I had a great time guest judging and picking the winners of the Roadkill Challenge for The CSI project. It was SO hard not to just pick all turquoise dressers as the winners.

Wonderful Etsy Finds::

  3. Went over to see the light fixture…WOW!! Janell

  4. All of those projects for the Roadkill challenge were AMAZING! I especially loved the chest of drawers with the basket…and you were right, I would have totally passed it up because it didn’t have all the drawers. The dresser that was on Craigslist…the heirloom hutch…such great makeovers! : )

  5. LOVING the newel post! I have SUCH a weakness for aqua!!! ;)

  6. Oh Nester, I think that I’d just about chain myself to that pretty turquoise banister end (does it have an official name?? I’m sure that it’d show up on the police report, LOL). How delightful and charming!

    P.S. I’ve been on a blog hiatus for a few months and am so excited to be back in the blogging world both in writing and, especially, in reading! I’m excited to see your featured Etsy items in this Bird Watching. Very cool idea!

    Happy weekend, Miss Nester and fellow readers!
