I think we can call our first link party a success!  Thank you all so much for linking up your projects.  Today we're all featuring some of our favorites.  Oh my goodness.  When you read link party features and the blogger says "It really was hard to pick...", now I believe them!  I could have picked so many more to feature.  You all linked up some very inspiring projects!

Be sure to visit the other party hostesses today as well, as we all chose different projects to feature.
Kris from Driven by Decor
Pam from Simple Details
Lisa from Shine Your Light

**PLEASE REMEMBER...if you'd like to pin any of these images, click the link and pin from the original source.  Thanks!**

I love the huge impact a little paint and organization can make in a space.  Mallory made it look easy with this perfect linen closet!

Closet Makeover from Confetti and Stripes

Just about anyone can create a piece of DIY artwork for a room.  There's not excuse not to have cute things on your walls!  Gretchen made this super-fun art just by taking some photographs.  I'm thinking I need to incorporate this idea as I'm working on my son's room!

DIY Vintage Fisher Price Nursery Art from Boxy Colonial

I like to think I'm pretty good at re-purposing things, but I would have never thought of this clever upcycle.  Tabatha used an outdated headboard and turned it into 2 chic chalkboards!

Headboard to Chalkboard Makeover from Chic by Tab

There are so many things I like about this boys' room.  Of course, the bold use of color, but also the light fixture, the stripes, and the artwork!  Stephanie created a stylish space that will work for her boys for years to come.

Boys' Room Makeover from The Diving Living Space

I'm beginning to believe there isn't anything Kristin can't DIY!  Once again, there's no excuse not to have good art on your walls.  Kristin made this with just a few supplies and a few minutes, and it complements her gorgeous new fireplace beautifully.

DIY Mondrian Inspired Art from Bliss at Home

Finally, we chose a link from our Instagram entries to feature.  Don't forget, even if you don't have a blog you can share a project using #bestofthenest.  

Holly shared her new living room.  I spy several things that I have myself, so of course I like this room!  #chiangmaipillows #homegoodsbust #brasstray

See?  I told you they were fantastic! If you were featured, feel free to grab a button!

One last thing, we've created a Pinterest board for the Best of the Nest Link Party.  You can click on "see on Pinterest" below to follow it.  Have a great weekend everyone!
