Best of the Nest:: February

Welcome friends! Guess what – it’s the last Friday of February!
That means two things – 
first, the longest winter ever is almost over!!!!!!!!!
Typically I like to skip talking about the frigid weather but when the salty ocean turns to SLUSH –
(I didn’t even know that could happen)
it’s time for spring, Mother Nature!!
(Can you believe this awesome pic from Nantucket photographer Jonathan Nimerfroh?
Check out his Instagram:  @jdnphotography
There are gorgeous summer photos on there that help me to remember why I love Massachusetts!)
The second reason why today is a fabulous day…..
it’s time to share the best from your nest this month!
(this is my favorite day on the blog each month, all this fun project sharing!)
This month we are honored to have Jenna from Rain On A Tin Roof  joining my co-hosts Kris from Driven By Decor, Pam from Simple Details, Jennifer from Dimples & Tangles and yours truly! Jenna has some amazing projects on her blog, including this recent chair makeover that I am dying over!!!
You may also know Jenna from the November 2014 edition of Better Homes & Gardens!
Jenna’s favorite project this month was her impromptu entryway makeover, don’t you love the fun confetti walls? Thanks for joining us Jenna!

My favorite project was something I have done many times throughout the years….
A cornice board is a great way to soften a window and update your space with a fresh fabric.
I love cornices but hanging them is always a pain in the butt – getting the drill under there, L-brackets – oy vey.
A block of wood and a D-ring make it soooooo much easier, why didn’t I think of this 15 years ago?

Jennifer gave her chandelier a fun makeover, including DIY spotted shades with this Ballard Designs knockoff! They are a bit sassy and unexpected and couldn’t be more perfect for Jennifer’s colorful house.

Pam is amazing at putting together vignettes. For Project Design she shared her coffee table styling tips that look effortless, interesting and pretty. (Note how Pam pulled out the feathery greens from her roses and displayed them separately. Love that detail!)

Speaking of coffee tables, Kris shared rule-of-thumb measurements for living rooms, including what the ideal height is for a coffee table in relation to the couch. (FYI…mine is too tall!) I love guides like this, which I pinned for future consideration.

LOL I didn't know the ocean could turn to slush either! Your cornice board looks great. Glad you found an easier way to put it up.
