Happy Friday everyone!  Welcome to Best of the Nest for this month.  We're excited to see what great projects you've been working on.

This month our guest host is my friend Julia from Cuckoo 4 Design.   Julia's sharing her newly painted kitchen, which she recently brightened up with some fresh white paint.  There are so many things I love about Julia's home.  She has some really creative ideas and a beautiful balance of calm and color.  I hope you'll go over and check out her home tour, her hallway is one of my favorites ever!

I didn't have anything huge going on this month, but I really love how this cutting board turned serving tray turned out.  I've already used it 3 or 4 different ways and it's currently on the kitchen counter holding my sugar and flour canisters.

Inspired by a high dollar designer candelabra, Pam showed us how to make our own version for a fraction of the cost.  And, it's virtually identical to the original.  This piece really makes a statement and could be used in so many different ways.  I love it so much I'm collecting parts and pieces to make my own.

Can you believe that Easter is just over a week away?  Kris shared some darling table decorations if you're looking for some new ideas.  I folded bunny ear napkins last year, too, and they're just adorable!

Unhappy with the textured finish that came on her new artwork, Lisa set out to give her new artwork a more polished finish.  Check out how she improved the terrible textured finish that this canvas originally had, and then built a frame from scratch to finish it off.

And don't forget, even if you aren't a blogger you can still participate.  Just post a photo on Instagram and be sure to tag at least one of the hosts and use the hashtag #bestofthenestparty.
