Nesting Place



I did a Guest Post over at Nesting Place today! So when you get a chance, flap those wings and stop over at Miss Nester's blogspot!



I'm creating design plans in my Office again today, but Kevin is putting the finishing touches on the extra moulding on top of the kitchen cabinets, to make them look taller. I'll post the tutorial here very soon!

I look forward to your instructions on adding the crown to the cupboards. I am planning to do the same thing to an old Ikea bookcase. I plan on crackling the new paint but have to see if it will work over the blue Ikea finish.
