{Design} Can I see your drawers?

I have found what I have been searching for – Admittedly I wasn’t even sure that I was searching, yet I feel like I have finally found some hidden treasure that should have always been mine.

Let me introduce you to the ‘Recycled Timber Luck of the Drawer’ from Jumbled in Orange.

The drawer is made from recycled timber and has six drawers. It has been hand painted with pastel coloured triangles and a wax finish.

This is so popular you need to order now for delivery in February next year!

You may wish to save your pennies though, it retails for $1,995.00 plus shipping.. Ah dreams…

I love the idea of DIY but I am one of the least creative, ridiculously uncoordinated people who have ever stomped across the planet. creature confrots leather

So when I find a quick, easy(ish) way to decorate your home using basic supplies I get a wee bit excited. Creature Comforts Blog have put together the perfect little weekend task.

DIY Leather-wrapped Vases and Votive Holders.

They are pretty. Delightful. Do-able.

You can find the full instructions over with the brilliant, clever people at Creature Comforts.

Happy making Nesters!

Up, up & away

I am eternally on the search for cute, simple ideas to freshen up our little nest. This is by far one of the beautiful mobiles I have seen.

You can find Craft Schmarft on Etsy and see how easy it is to make this bad-boy yourself!

WE LOVE THIS. They retail for about $70.00 and can be shipped to the Central West.

They say all you need is some stuffing, scissors, needle & thread. I think they may have forgotten to mention some degree of skillset (read: therefore I will ask my crafty mumma for assistance).

Happy ballooning Nesters!
