Thank you all for linking up with us last Friday for Best of the Nest.  There's lots of work going on out there, and I have some pretty fantastic makeovers to share with you today!  Be sure to check out my co-hosts posts today as well for their features from the party.

 Pam from Simple Details // Lisa from Shine Your Light // Kris from Driven by Decor 

Leslie from Paper Daisy Designs DIY'd this awesome kitchen island cart to create an extra work surface and more storage space. A super functional and extra pretty piece...can't beat that!

Heather from Encouraged at Home recently completed this bright and girly colorful room for her daughter.  She made some dramatic changes without a lot of $$$.

Anne from Design Dreams by Anne has been creating lots of paintings, and shared a great way to frame out her canvases for around $1.  Almost free art, gotta love that!

Darrielle from D.D.'s Cottage and Design used lots of patience and elbow grease to make this formerly ugly dresser pretty and proud again.  I love the age and hints of the past that the distressing shows.

Finally, Vel from Life and Home at 2102 shared her makeover of her basement guest room.  That pretty, cozy bed is looking really good right now!  Vel has the most adorable brand new baby girl, and two big brothers that absolutely adore her!

Thanks again for sharing with us, everyone.  I hope you all have a great weekend!  I'm off to hopefully finish painting my kitchen cabinets, and tomorrow I'm meeting up with some dear friends for our 20th Reunion from college.  How is that possible (said as I spy another gray hair on my head...)???
