One of my all-time favorite blogs is The Nesting Place. The girl who writes the blog, or The Nester, as she is called, is a genius when it comes to home decor and all things home improvement. Not only that, she is quite possibly the funniest person I have ever stumbled upon in the blogosphere. Her slogan is "It doesn't have to be perfect to be beautiful" and she encourages you to just take the plunge and do stuff to your home that you've been wanting to do.
The picture above is from her "Price my Space" party where she tells you what she paid for everything in her family room.
My friend Mandee introduced me to the Nester's blog when I started talking about painting my kitchen cabinets. That is a LONG post for another day. I eventually told my sister Ashley about the Nester and she chastised me for not telling her sooner. Ashley went back and read every post the Nester ever wrote. She's that good.
So go check her out. I warn you that once you go over there, you'll be addicted and you'll want to re-do your whole house. Enjoy!
