Make me a bird so I can fly far, far away.

Make me a bird so I can fly far, far away.  Some days this is how I feel, and today is one of those days.  Work, schmirk.  Worries, schmerries.  Blahh, Blahh.
Home is where I can relax and try to forget about that "stuff".  Nest (n): a place of retreat, rest, or lodging.  Nest = my home.  Back to a favorite hobby....creative projects.  Debating on whether to practice with an applique or ideas for murals in Baby Elsie's room.  I wanted to get a chandelier for her nursery as my gift.  As I started googling and searching for the perfect chandelier...I quickly realized that chandeliers aren't cheap.  I want the chipper chicken Fronk!  It's not as though these chandeliers have REAL crystals on them...  So I started googling and stubbled upon this....I'm lovin' it!  Both options will be super cute and save major bucks!  What do you think?!  Would this look cute in a nursery with an owl theme?  Or have I gone Cooky?!

Option 1-brass chandelier (find a reasonable offer on craigslist or thrift store)...

Spray paint it white....

Then add some crystal beads!  Awesome! 

Option 2: old chandelier....spray paint it white if not already...

Add some branches and shape them with the curves of the chandelier...

Then Spray paint WHITE!  A Nest Chandelier!  I'm still lovin' it!


  1. I love the 2nd option, A Nest Chandelier. very pretty & creative. Love your work.

  2. You are so sweet Heather! Wish me luck on this one....I hope I can recreate this as half as good as the one from funky junk interiors!!! I'll post it soon if it turns out good....

  3. I think either option is great! You are so crafty that any project that you do will turn out perfect! Ayden and Elsie are very lucky to have you as their aunt!!!

  4. I think they are super cute! Do you have a Habitat for Humanity "ReStore" We have a pretty small one, and they have stuff like that all the time!
