A Little Bit of Candy

Last time I went to visit my dad in Milford, Michigan I went window shopping.  Milford has such a quaint little downtown area.  My absolute favorite store there is called Your Nesting Place.  They have unique furniture, bright colors, and different patterns mixed together.  

The furniture there is absolutely drooling worthy. Here’s a little candy for you…

I really want to make this adorable pillow with some funky bright fabrics.

If you have been around my place for a while then you will remember this desk I found on the side of the road back in August.

IMG_0084Well it has just been taking up space undecorated and ugly in my guest bedroom. I am thinking I have found the perfect inspiration for it, don’t you?  I think another Roadkill Rescue Party is in order.  It will be motivation to get this piece done.

The new button is on my sidebar.  I would love for you to grab it and blind out your blog.

For those IC newbies click here and here to see what the Roadkill Rescue party is all about.

So find some trash, bling it out, and come back here February 25th to show it off. 

P.S.  For those of you who have a business or Etsy shop who would like some free exposure and want to donate to the Roadkill Rescue prize pack please email me at [email protected]

    I almost choked when I read that your Dad lives in Milford, MI… I grew up in Milford, my family still lives there- and I've frequented the store that you are talking about!

    Small world…

    Yeah!!!! I'm ready for a Roadkill Rescue! It will help inspire me to get some of my projects outta the garage! :)

    My daughter turns 2 this summer and I have an entire bedroom set GIVEN to me! I can't wait to redo it! I'm just still trying to figure out what color to do, whether white or light pink furniture!? I have a canopy bed, dresser, desk and chair to redo. :) I'm giddy.

    I just love the black dresser with the colorful papers. I'll have to try something like that on a piece. Very playful and interesting.

    I am super psyched about the upcoming Roadkill Rescue. I found some *real* junk!

    Oh my goodness… that's JUST LIKE my desk! I've had mine since about 3rd grade – I got it for Christmas… I had obsessed over a roll top I saw in a catalog and drove my parents half crazy about it. I STILL have that old desk, it is part of my craft area. Never refinished it or anything (lol still looks relatively new — I was, er um still am protective of it LOL)

    I've had it since 1985!

    Oh yay! I finally have something to work on this time. Now, I better go get busy!

  • Kim

    I have that exact same roll top desk in my ugly guest room, and I keep toying with bringing it to Goodwill! I'm glad I didn't bring it away, and I can't wait to see what you do with yours, because that desk can't possibly get any uglier!

  • The Harris Family

    I love that dresser and pillow. I'm excited for another Roadkill Rescue!

    Hmnnnnnnnn…I'm about to get a cheap desk to replace the cheap desk we already have.

    Maybe I should go for broke and make it totally funky.

    Thanks for the inspiration. Now I just have to get up the guts to go nuts!

    i already owned the markers when i saw them on your blog way back when. but, thanks to you, i found out all the different ways to use them. except i don't remember you mentioning the potty. did you? still haven't figured out how to redo my roadkill rescue. oh – & i put up dropcloth curtains in my dining room last month. i need to show them, i guess. i love them!

  • Amanda@Imperfectly Beautiful

    Cute, cute, cute store! I cannot wait to see what you do with that rolltop desk! I am going to start scouring the trash piles, in hopes of finding something fabulously funky I can rehab!!!
