Paint an Ombre Wall

How to Paint an Ombre Wall via Sprinkled Nest

Kids rooms always take so much thought as to what should be done when decorating them.  Especially when the child is old enough to have a strong opinion…one that usually doesn’t align with moms’!  My daughter is 10…going on 16.  It is such a funny age.  She wants to be so grown up, yet she [...]

Belle Ambiance Cabernet Sauvignon – Wine{a}be Wednesday

Belle Ambiance Cabernet Sauvignon via Sprinkled Nest Wine{a}be Wednesday

After a long night and {the following} day of installing a storm door on our house, it was definitely wine time!  We were dodging thunderstorms that turned into snow showers along the way.  I’m sure the neighbors thought we were insane…working outside then tossing all our tools in the garage as fast as possible and [...]

Failed Attempts, Broken Appliances, and the Full Red Moon

Full Red Moon

Happy Monday!  I don’t know about you, but it was a weekend of failed attempts for me!  I know often people think that everything is rainbows and butterflies here in blogland…but I assure you…the full red moon is affecting me too.  That is my story and I’m sticking to it.

Wow!  I have a lot to chat about today.  So, last week {Saturday} was Bloggy Boot Camp in St. Louis.  I headed out on Friday afternoon on my 3 hour journey.  I do have to say, it was strange not picking up my kiddos from school!  But, I know my hubby really enjoyed doing that [...]

Transform Metal Wall Art into a Custom Accent Table

Metal Wall Art from Hobby Lobby transformed into a custom table with Kreg Jig and Annie Sloan Chalk Paint, Sprinkled Nest

Shut the front door!!!  No…Seriously!!!  I BUILT A TABLE!!!  I have never  EVER built anything.  Well, ok…I guess that isn’t true.  I did go through architecture school…I built walls, parts of houses, random sculptures made of copper piping and fish tanks sprinkled around the college campus that invited awkward confused looks from 25,000+ college students [...]

Hi Friends!  Well, today I’m off to St. Louis!  I’m headed to Bloggy Boot Camp put on by The SITS Girls.  If you have never been to a blog conference…I HIGHLY suggest starting off with one of these.  They are on the smaller, more intimate side.  Assigned seating so you are sure to meet new [...]
