Michael’s Makeover

So I went to my local Michaels store and found these beautiful little nests encompassed in a cloche for $7.99 with 40% off and my brain just said – Ooooh, I can make this so much prettier and it will fit will my makeover project for my hallway display. 

So here is the original ~

I just painted the base with gesso, took off all the old flowers, added glass glitter around the top of the nest, paper pink roses and creamy white nosegays and voila!  A new piece for my makeover and a beautiful dream of spring!

So, getting ready to redecorate. . .

I thought it would be fun to take everyone thru my redecorating projects over the next few months.  I decided that it’s time to spend some time on my home and I’m inviting everyone else to join in.  The first project I’m going to tackle is my hallway closet that I’ve re-done to be a display case for my treasures that I’ve neglected for years.  I’ll begin posting before & after pictures shortly.  I welcome all your comments as I go thru this decorating process.  Wendy
